Yes, it is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This month we are casing the catalog.
I was inspired by the layout of the card.
I used the Playing with Patterns DSP to guide my color choices, Night of Navy for the card base and Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana for my "stripes". Let's talk about those stripes. I used the Ornate Borders die to create them. They certainly brighten up the card and add some more texture and fun.
Instead of twine I used the 3/8" Denim ribbon. This ribbon is not bulky or stiff like regular denim, it is soft and lightweight and ties very easily. It is easy to make pretty bows with this ribbon. I used 2 different embellishments to sass up the card. I used the Playing with Pattern Resin Dots in Coastal Cabana and the Artistry Blooms Sequins in Calypso Coral. Fun to mix two different kinds of embellishments.
The HI! was cut using the Playful Alphabet dies. I backed a piece of Night of Navy cardstock with a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheets and then cut out the letters and exclamation points. The Foam Adhesive Sheets are like a solid piece of Stampin' Dimnesionals. The letters were covered with Shimmery Crystal Effects to make them shine and add a little sparkle.
