Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was good. I got most of what I wanted to do accomplished. I also went into the city yesterday to see some friends and drop off a Stampin’ Up! order. The best part was driving in and back with the top down in the car! 🙂
Today’s post is for this weeks Paper Players Challenge. This week Jaydee has given us this sketch challenge…
A nice simple layout to work with. The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla with the new Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder* and backed it with a piece of Garden Green. The tree is cut with my Paper Trimmer and mounted to the card. I embossed piece of Very Vanilla with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder* and adhered to a piece of Garden Green with some SNAIL. The ornaments are from the Merry Minis Stamp Set* and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I used the coordinating new Merry Minis Punch Pack* to punch them out. The circles behind them are form the Be Of Good Cheer Designer series Paper and are punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. I adhered the ornaments to the circles with Mini Glues Dots and the circles are adhered to the tree with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I punched the star out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack* from a piece of new Champagne Glimmer Paper*. For the circle to the left I used a piece of Vellum Card Stock with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit Die. The new 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch* is used to punch out a piece of Garden Green. The Cherry Cobbler Circle is punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch and the tree with the Merry Mini Punch Pack*. The greeting across the top is from the new Border Banter Stamp Set* and is stamped in Garden green and mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I hope that you are liking the new items from the Holiday Catalog and that you enjoyed today’s card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. Thank you very much for stopping by and have an great day!
