Paper Craft Crew 64

Posted on

Yup, it’s Wednesday, halfway there! Yesterday was nice, my boss took my department out to lunch for our hard work that we put into making the Gala on Friday a success. We had some burgers and a very nice time. The weather here is supposed to change today, it’s going to get a lot cooler and rain… boo. Well, it is October so I guess it’s time.

Today I have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge and here is the sketch…

PCCCS064 10-23-2013

This was one of those times that I had an idea as soon as I saw the sketch, love when that happens! The base of the card is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock. A piece of paper from the Etcetera Designer Series Paper Pack is used for the background with some Old Olive across the bottom and a piece of Very Vanilla cut out with the Tasteful Trims Bigz XL Die. The main panel is a piece of Very Vanilla backed by Pool Party. The reindeer is from the Warmth and Wonder Host(ess) Stamp Set. All of the other images are from the A Banner Christmas Stamp Set, the Merry is cut out with my Paper Snips and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The HO-cubed is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch and the snowflakes with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. A piece of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim Ribbon is adhered around the back and the panel is mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You all know I like an unusual color combination for a Holiday card, and this one certainly fits the bill. I would even go as far to say as it has a little bit of a vintage feel to it. Thanks, as always, for stopping to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch. Take some time to check out the other Design Team members’ projects on the blog. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

  1. Ooooooohhh! I love this combination of colors and images. I am slapping myself that I didn’t make a Christmas card with this groovy page of Et Cetera. Now that you’ve done it, it screams “Retro Christmas!” This is a winner!

  2. Oooh, so pretty, Justin! I agree with you, I really like the layout. I think it inspires a lot of creativity. I had to look up the Etcetera paper myself, as I didn’t even recognize it on your card.

  3. When I saw the raw sketch I thought “I really like that but, boy howdy does that make you dig deep for creativity” You did a top notch job with this one ,Justin ! I love it …those three little snowflakes are too cute and there is another stamp set that I forgot about !!! And don`t you love that tasteful trims die ! It comes through for ya so many times !! Great card !

  4. Really cute card, as usual! I am so impressed with how you are able to write so much on your blog and make at least one fabulous card every day!!! And maintain a full time job and social life. 🙂 Miriam

  5. This is super Retro! I just love all the elements together! and Wow I am loving the Pool Party and Brown Sugar together! YUM!
