This is a “Winter” card that was inspired by a card that I saw on Create with Connie and Mary. I was using this card template for my stamp clubs this past month and saw all kinds of beautiful ideas!
My card was inspired by a card from Marvelous Possibilities. I really loved the color combination and of course the stamp set…..Lovely as a Tree (my absolute favorite tree stamp set EVER!) (p.84). I added a little dazzling diamonds to give it a bit of winter sparkle. I used a Summer Starfruit card base and DSP from Comfort Cafe’ (p.163) and Basic Gray and Vanilla card stock layers. Just simply LOVELY!
Finally, this is my own creation using the Countryside stamp set (p.85). I used a piece of DSP from the Orchard Harvest designer series paper (p.28 in the Holiday catalog) for my color combo inspiration (Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Island Indigo,Riding Hood Red). I used watercolor paper and watercolor pencils to create the focal image. I used the Woodgrain embossing folder (p.33 in the Holiday catalog) and the Argyle folder (p.189) on the banners.
My last card is also a CASED idea from Mary Brown…however, I decided to change the color combination entirely. I used Riding Hood Red rather than pink, the new Champagne Glimmer paper (p.18 in the Holiday catalog) rather than Silver glimmer paper, and Very Vanilla rather than Whisper White. I also used a permanent marker to change the rhinestone from silver to gold to match the glimmer paper. And I used the new Snowflake Soiree stamp set (p.5 in the Holiday catalog) just as Mary did.
So, hope you are getting into the Christmas spirit….just 22 days left!! See you tomorrow for some more Christmas joy!!
