Good morning and happy Friday! It’s supposed to rain here today and most of the day tomorrow but it’s supposed to be nice on Sunday. I guess Saturday will be a good day to stay in and craft! Yeah! A quick thank you to all of you that read my blog each day. I appreciate all of your wonderful comments and you make me strive to be more creative! Thanks!

Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. For this week’s challenge they have given us this sketch…

I wanted to finally make a Christmas card that uses traditional colors and use some new things that I have acquired from the 2012 Holiday Catalog. The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Cherry Cobbler with the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set and the new Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stamp Pad. The Illuminate Pad gives a nice subtle silver image and shows up when you tilt the card in the light. The three pieces of Designer Series Paper are from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. It contains 40 sheets that are 6 1/2 x 4 1/2, perfect for cards! I used my favorite new tool the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and the Paper-Piercing Tool on the piece of Lucky Limeade to the left. Then I wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine around it twice and used Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back to hold the Baker’s Twine and mount it to the card. For the main image I used the 1 3/4″Scallop Circle Punch and the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Paper-Pierced them and stamped the mitten from the Make A Mitten Stamp Set in Crumb Cake and Lucky Limeade, then punched it out with the Mitten Builder Punch and added a few dots of Silver Sparkle Dazzling Detals. All of the elements are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set and is stamped in Lucky Limeade. I used my trusty Paper Snips to fussy cut it and then used pieces of Stampin’ DImensionals to adhere it to the card. I’m liking the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stamp Pad and the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper. I hope you enjoyed this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card. Thank you so much for visiting and have an awesome Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚
