Holly Jolly Greetings

CCMC377Happy Thursday everyone!  I just love Thursday…first because it is the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and a fun sketch it is!

The other reason I love Thursday?  I’m FINALLY caught up on my grading from last week!  I always have it as my goal to have everything from the previous week graded by the end of Wednesday and I did it!  LOL!!!

So…for this card I ‘flipped’ the sketch and put the strips on the top instead of the bottom so I would have somewhere to ‘hang’ my ornament!

Here’s the details…

  • Mossy Meadow – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, stamp JOY in the bottom right corner using Mossy Meadow
  • Strips – Mossy Meadow 3/4 x 4, Gold Glimmer 1/2 x 4 1/8, and Mistletoe print (Home for Christmas) 3/4 x 4, arrange the Mossy Meadow and Gold Glimmer strips on the Very Vanilla and trim end.
  • Cut out smallest ornament and ornament top from Gold Foil.  Put piece of Gold Cording Trim through hole in ornament topper, tape ends to back of Mistletoe print, add strip to card front, then strip end.
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Add VERY THIN pieces of dimensionals to back of ornament, add to card front lining up so the ornament top can be added to the top using glue dot.
