Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #484, Pretty Pines

Hello and Happy Thursday!  Today's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge is a sketch.


For this card, I wanted to use the Stitched Felt Embellishments.  I think it turned out well.


Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.

The front of the card is covered with patterned paper from the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack.  It measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

A panel of Whisper White, 2 3/4 x 4 is added to the center of the front.  The corners were rounded with the retired corner rounder.

Add a banner 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 with more of the patterned paper from the Quilted Christmas pack.  Use the Triple Banner Punch to notch the end.  The thin strip is cut at 1/4 x 5 1/4.  It's from the same paper pack.

The pine cones, Soft Suede and Early Espresso, are cut from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  The Garden Green sprigs and the Real Red ones are also cut with the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Top off with the felt holly from the Stitched Felt Embellishments.  I added the felt with Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set.  It's stamped in Real Red on a 1/2 inch scrap of Whisper White.

The inside of the card has a sentiment from Christmas Pines and more cut outs.  For the pine cone, cut the smaller pine cone shape from Soft Suede and then stamp with Early Espresso on top.

As I finished this card, I noticed that it is very similar to another card I posted recently.  You can see that card here.  It was from another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.
