Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #476 Christmas

The Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge is a sketch this week.


When I saw this sketch, my mind went immediately to the new Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape.  It's perfect for the slanted stripes!  Are you ready for a little shimmer and shine?

The card starts with the Thick Whisper White card stack cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.

The next layer is 4 x 5 1/4 in the Gold Foil.  Now it is really hard to waste this foil behind another layer.  I cut out the center to use another time.

The Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper is used for the next layer cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  Add 3 rows of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi tape at a diagonal to this base.

The sentiment in the lower right corner is from the stamp set Christmas Pines.  Use the Embossing Buddy in the area, stamp with Versamark, and then heat emboss with Silver Embossing Powder.

Add a gold Foil Snowflake.  The center has more of the same background paper cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.

The snowflakes, one in Gold Foil and one in Silver Foil, are cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

The inside of the card has more of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape again diagonally across the paper.  The sentiment is from Christmas Pines.

So, here is a little bit of a fancy card without a lot of bother.  The Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper is just fantastic especially if you like a little sparkle in your life.  I'm not so much of a sparkle person, but I do love this card.  If you don't have those Foil Snowflakes, you must get them right away!
