Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge 230 & Sneak Peek

Posted on

Woo hoo! It’s Friday! I’m always doing the happy dance on Friday! Last night I made some Hummus and some Fudge. I know what you are thinking… what an odd combination. Well, if you ate them together I would think it would be a little nasty. The hummus is the appetizer and the fudge (if it makes it through today) is for desert. I have sampled both and they are good but I am wanting some more of the fudge! 🙂

Today’s post is from this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a color challenge…

CCMC 230

A very simple color combination and one with a little bling! The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used the new Ovals Collection Framelits Dies* to cut out a two pieces of Very Vanilla, one with the scalloped edge, and two pieces of Champagne Glimmer Paper. All of the pieces of Very Vanilla are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Glimmer Paper is adhered with SNAIL. The Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack* and Paper-Piercing Tool are used to piece around the edges of the Very Vanilla pieces. I stamped the Merry Christmas from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler and flagged the ends. For the piercing on that I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack. Even with all of it’s layers and glitz it was a very simple card to make. I have to remember to order some Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, the Merry Christmas would have looked rich in that. Did you enjoy today’s sneak peek? What has been you favorite peek so far? Let me know by leaving a comment. I hope that you liked this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge card. Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing Friday! 🙂

  1. Beautiful card–I agree, the Merry Christmas embossed in gold would give it a much richer look. I believe my favorite so far are the new oval dies. Have a great day!
