Cool Kids

CCMC286It’s another Thursday which means another FUN challenge on Create with Connie and Mary.  And this week…we have a very different color challenge for you!

I will have to say when I sat down to work on this challenge I really wasn’t sure what the heck I was going to do with it but I have to say, I think it turned out SOOOO cute!  This set is really different but I do think it will make some cute kid cards!

Here’s the details:

  • Smoky Slate – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Smoky Slate – 3 3/4 x 5, run through the Arrows embossing folder then add to card front.
  • Add thin strip Island Indigo 1/8 x 4 3/8 (you’ll have to trim the edges) to the card base.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White 2 x 3 3/4 and cut top with Angled Tag Topper Punch.  Stamp the dog in Island Indigo.  Either color in the scarf with Perfect Plum or do like I did and stamp on a piece of Perfect Plum and cut out and add.
  • Stamp the greeting on Perfect Plum 5/8 x 3 using Veramark and white emboss.  Cut into a banner and add to the tag using dimensionals.
  • Add Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon to the top of the tag and tie with a piece of White Baker’s Twine.  Add tag to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some rhinestones to the tag to finish it off.
