Okay…so I was needing to make a card for my November Creative Crew assignment on SCS to use the colors in the Festive dsp pack and I wanted a unique layout for the card. Then I was looking at Mary Jo’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and thought I like the overall look but was going to take a couple ‘liberties’ with her sketch. You know…that’s the nice thing about sketch challenges, they can be a place to start!
This is such an easy card. The base of the card is Very Vanilla. I took strips of dsp from the Festive dsp paper pack and cut the in ends into different banners and added to the card front. Next I took a piece of watercolor paper, stamped the Frosty Friends in versamark and embossed with the Early Espresso Embossing Powder and colored in with my Island Indigo (no … really …it’s in there… it’s the birds), Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade and Crumb Cake markers, layered a Cherry Cobbler Large Scallop Edge under it, a Cherry Cobbler strip on the top and then wrapped a piece of Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon around it. This is added to the card front. I stamped the greeting using Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobbler markers on Very Vanilla, punched with the Large Oval Punch, layered onto an Early Espresso Scallop Oval Punch piece then added to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the little tree from the Merry Minis using Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso, punched with the Merry Mini Tree Punch and added using a dimensional. Now if you would like to see all the ‘Creative Crew’ creations for November, check them out here.
