Jolly Christmas

CCMC380Happy Thursday everyone!  Yep…it’s Thursday so that means it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week…a super cool color challenge:  Real Red, Smoky Slate, Basic Black.  Oh my how classy is that!

With these colors I just wanted to do something ‘clean and simple’ and knew I wanted to use these fun ‘sparkles’ from the ‘Jolly Christmas’ set.  I just LOVE these little images…SO COOL!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Stamp the large ‘sparkle’ using Real Red and Smoky Slate and the small ‘sparkle’ in Basic Black.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut out merry three times from Basic Black, layer and add to card front.
  • Add some medium Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

What I like about this card is that this can be be just as good for a birthday or any kind of celebration card!

And it is time to celebrate because…
