CCMC Spring 14-01

Good morning everyone! I am here to show you the Saturday challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! Each Saturday during the Spring Collection they provide a challenge for the public to play along with! We have just finished up week 1 and this is our first Saturday challenge - a sketch! Take a look!

And my card...

Card details…

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • A strip of Coastal Cabana was run through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die and adhered to the card
  • Layer of Crumb Cake with a piece of Fresh Prints designer paper adhere to the top portion
  • Wrap a piece of Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon around this panel and then a piece of Real Red 1/8" taffeta ribbon on top
  • Adhere the panel to the card with dimensionals
  • Cut a scallop circle from Real Red using the Perfect Pennants die
  • Punch a circle from silver glimmer paper using the 2 1/2" circle punch and adhere to scallop circle
  • Stamp the image from Perfect Pennants in Coastal Cabana onto Whisper White and then stamp the heart image over this in Real Red (note: I stamped the heart off several times so it would be very faint)
  • Punch out the stamped image with the 1 3/4" circle punch
  • Adhere stamped circle to silver glimmer paper with dimensionals and the whole circle element to the card with dimensionals
  • Adhere three rhinestones
