Sheltering Tree

CCMC351Oh what a fun sketch challenge we have for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I’m still on a kick using some ‘neglecting’ dsp that I got when the new catalog first came out and I thought the Gold Soiree Specialty dsp would be fun paired up with the Sheltering Tree set for our sketch challenge this week.

Here’s the details –

  • Pistachio Pudding – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Gold Soiree dsp – 3 prints 7/8 x 4 1/4.  I did all the same size so I could play with how to arrange them.  Add to card front and trim off the one of a diagonal.
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Stamp tree trunk/branches in Crumb Cake, leaves and swish in Pistachio Pudding, extra leaves in Rose Coral Chalk.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Calypso Coral – 1/2 x 2 7/8, stamp greeting using Soft Suede, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Calypso Coral Candy Dots to finish off

And don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out what the design team did with this delightful challenge!

  1. Beautiful, Mary! I love how the DSP mimics the shape of the leaves on the tree! It all works together perfectly!

  2. I love how you pulled the colors from the DSP for the tree!! The tree looks like it is in bloom! Such a happy and sweet card for spring!

    Perfect card! That Gold Soiree paper looks amazing….I am hoarding it too so I had better use it up. 🙂

  4. What a pretty card for that sweet “thinking of you” sentiment! Love how your blooming tree coordinates so perfectly with the designer paper!

  5. So pretty! I love the candy dots on your tree.

  6. The paper and tree are a perfect pair – love your candy dot apples too!
