Snow Front Birthday
A Merry Moose Birthday

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #576 Snow Front

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #576.  This week we have a sketch.


I decided to use the new Snow Front stamp set from the Holiday catalog.  I really like this sketch.  In fact, I used it on a post yesterday.  Go here to see it.

Here is my card for today.

CCMC # 576 Snow Front by Jo Anne Hewins

Begin with a Gray Granite base cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

Cover the front with a layer of check paper.  I used the Gray Granite paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.  Cut this at 4 1/2 x 5 1/2.  I used glue to attach this layer.  You will have a little give to move it if needed.

The Whisper White layer is 3 1/4 x 4.  Use the Snow Front stamp set to decorate.  I used Gray Granite for the mountains.  Stamp off one of them.  I also stamped the house and snowman in Gray Granite.  The trees are stamped in Mossy Meadow.  Some are stamped off before stamping.

Tie a length of the Gray Granite Textured Weave Ribbon around the layer and tie in a knot.  Add the layer to the card with snail.

The Happy Birthday is from the Perennial Birthday.  I used the Rectangle Stitched Dies to cut this out.  First cut close to the top of the Happy Birthday.  Now put the die so that the bottom is close.  Be sure to try to match the sides to the die.  Now the die cuts perfectly to the size of the words.  Add this label with dimensionals.

Finish the card with Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.  I used the white ones.

The inside of the card uses Snow Front and the Perennial Birthday stamp sets.

I liked this card so much that I wanted to use it for my September class.  I just didn't have enough of the check designer paper without ordering a lot of packs.  So, I redesigned the card using the Buffalo Check background stamp.

I also changed to the Metallic Pearls.  I had lots of the silver so that will work great for class.  The label is just cut to 1 x the length of the word.  We will use the Stamparatus for the background stamp!

Hi Jo Anne, it was so nice to meet you at Quarterly yesterday. This is such a pretty card—with the pearls for a woman or without the pearls for a man. And so nice of you to change it up for use if you don’t have the DSP. Hope to see you again at a Stampin’ Up! event.

Jo Anne Hewins

Thanks for the kind words, Sheila. It was nice to meet you too. I had a wonderful time yesterday. I'll be at Tamra's Quarterly in January and in Atlanta!
