For our Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge this week, we are using Dapper Denim, Soft Suede, and Pear Pizzazz. These form a soft palette and remind me that fall is coming.
I decided to use the Paisleys & Posies stamp set for this challenge. This set appeared last year in the Holiday catalog and, thankfully, it was carried over to the new annual catalog.
The card base is Dapper Denim card stock. It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is scored and folded at 4 1/4. Use your bone folder to get that fold nice and crisp.
The Pear Pizzazz layer is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.
The Whisper White layer measures 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. I used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set to make my own patterned background. The flower is Dapper Denim. The larger leaf is Pear Pizzazz and the smaller leaf is Soft Suede. Stamp these randomly over the paper changing the orientation of the stamps. It's also a good idea to run the stamps off the page to make it more pleasing and natural.
The Whisper White banner measures 1 x 3 3/4. Stamp the words with the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz. The Soft Suede banner is 1 1/4 x 4. Notch the ends of these banners using the Triple Layer Punch. The punch makes it so easy to layer these banners perfectly. Glue the two together and adhere to the card.
Use the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut the scalloped oval in Dapper Denim. The flower is stamped in denim on white and cut with the Layering Ovals. Adhere the two. The scalloped oval will have dimensionals on the back.
Make a bow with Linen Thread and adhere with a glue dot.
I do tend to make difficult cards. This one can be made in about 10 minutes. I love it!
Don't forget that the 2017 Holiday catalog goes live September 1st. Don't have a catalog? If you don't already have a demonstrator, I would be happy to send you one. Just send me a message! It's a great catalog! You need it!
