Peaceful Pines

CCMC381bHappy Thursday everyone!  It’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge and this week we have a GREAT sketch challenge for you!

When I say the challenge the first thing I thought of was it would work perfectly with the Peaceful Pines set.  I ended up using this for my October Christmas Card Class and they could choose between this card in Soft Sky or the same card in Blushing Bride.  Had some takers for both color combos!

Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sky – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Soft Sky – 3 3/4 x 5, run through Softly Falling Embossing Folder and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Silver diagonal stripe dsp (Neutrals dsp Paper Pack) – 1 x 4, add to card front
  • Cut out largest tree from Silver Foil then to the ‘branches’, bend out. Do tree base in Whisper White, add to tree, add tree to card front.
  • Cut out medium tree from Whisper White, stamp ‘Christmas lights’ using Versamark, silver emboss, add Silver Tree Base then add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add White star to silver tree and silver star to white tree
  • Stamp greeting on Whisper White using Versamark and silver emboss, punch out using 1″ Circle punch, layer onto 1 1/4″ Scallop Soft Sky Circle.  Add to card front using dimensionals.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team!

Peaceful Pines

CAS346I’ve been working on some cards for a wonderful group of ladies that get together every month to do some crafting.  I had promised that we would do some Christmas cards and I’ve been working this weekend to get my cards designed for this get together and for a Christmas card class next month.

I was looking around and noticed that the CAS challenge on SCS is to do words only…no stamped images.  Well…I was thinking about doing a simple Christmas tree card for my Tuesday get together and I came up with this simple card!  Only the words are stamped…that rest are die cuts…AWESOME!

Here’s the details…

  • Mossy Meadow – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 5 x 3 3/4, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Home for Christmas dsp (mistletoe print) – 3/4 x 3 1/2, add to Very Vanilla panel
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival ink, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut medium tree framelit out of Gold Foil, and small tree framelit out of Gold Glimmer, layer and add using dimensionals.
  • Cut stars from Mossy Meadow and add to top of each tree to finish off.

So…what a great little Christmas card!  And speaking of GREAT…you should see the WONDERFUL projects we have for our subscribers of the Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Session.  Here’s a sneak peek of our projects (and PSST…we opened TODAY)!…
