Festive Friday Challenge #FF0045

Band Together and the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards

It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge!  Love the sketch for this week's challenge.


Recently I re-organized my craft table.  One of the things I moved was where I stored my note cards, Scalloped Note Cards and the ever so lovely Bird Ballad Laser-Cut cards.  They are now on my craft table and what I can see I will more likely use.

Isn't it great when so much of a card's design is done for you.  The intricate card front is simply  gorgeous.  I layered a piece of Petal Pink card stock to the inside of the front of the card.  Why?  For one, to add a little more color and two, to cover up the adhesive that would show through from the things I attached to the front.

The Band Together flowers were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored using Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.  The larger flower was cut out using the Detailed Bands die (part of the Band Together bundle) . The smaller flower was fussy cut, fortunately the flower is not very fussy at all.  The leaf was stamped on a piece of Old Olive card stock and cut out using the Detailed Bands dies.


Did you notice the little gold dots?  They are glitter gold enamel dots!  Don't look for them in the catalogs, they are an embellishment that is being released on November 1, part of the Christmastime is here suite.   They are subtle little dots of gold sparkle-love!

Be sure to check out what the other members of the Create with Connie & Mary design team created for this challenge!
