Calm Christmas

CCMC277Oh…it’s Thursday again and time for still another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  And what a GREAT sketch Challenge we have for you this week!  We hope you will join the fun!

When I sat down to work on this, I had this bird already stamped, embossed and cut out and sitting on top of my desk so I decided to build my card around it!

Here’s the details…

  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 3/4 x 1 1/2 and 4 3/4 x 1.  Ink the top of the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder with Cherry Cobbler ink, put in the two strips then run through the Big Shot.  LOVE the look!  Add these two strips to the card base.
  • Stamp Peace on Earth in Cherry Cobbler on a 4 x 1 piece of Very Vanilla that is cut into a banner.  Add to card using dimensionals.
  • Stamp bird in versamark on Very Vanilla, Gold Emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Pearls to finish it off.
