Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


Today we are all using "non traditional colors" for our Christmas cards. Welcome to our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. The Feeling Of Christmas stamp set was perfect to use for my project today:



I used Fresh Fig and Crushed Curry for my non-traditional colors and I think those colors work well for Christmas. I actually stamped my wreath image twice. Once on the Whisper White Cardstock layer and a 2nd time on the Birthday Memories Designer Paper so that I could hand-cut the bow with my Paper Snips and glue it over the first image:


The addition of the sentiment on a small piece of cardstock cut with the Layering Squares Dies finished off my card perfectly! Here are my layers:
  1. Card Base: Fresh Fig Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  2. Layer #2: Birthday Memories Designer Paper 5" x 3-3/4". Stamp the small branch image using Fresh Fig Ink on the right. Glue to card base.
  3. Layer #3:Whisper White Cardstock 3-3/4" x 3-1/2". Stamp the wreath image using Fresh Fig Ink. Stamp the 2nd image using Crushed Curry Ink. Glue to card front about 1/2" from the left using Stampin' Dimensional.s
  4. Bow: Stamp the wreath image on the Birthday Memories Designer Paper and hand-cut the bow. Glue over the bow on Layer 3.
  5. Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White Cardstock using Fresh Fig Ink. Cut with the Layering Squares Dies. Glue to the wreath using Stampin' Dimensionals.
