It is Thursday which means it is time to show you what I made for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week it is a sketch challenge and one I thought would be perfect to use the Peaceful Prints DSP. The Peaceful Prints DSP is a Sale-A-Bration choice which means it is free with a qualifying order ( in the US that is a purchase of $50 before shipping & tax). There are more choices that can be seen here. The Peaceful Prints DSP is a lovely pack of paper and a great accompaniment if you have the Peaceful Deer bundle (J-D catalog).
Here's what I made using the sketch.
The diagonal stripe paper is from the Peaceful Prints DSP. Sahara Sand is one of the colors I do not use very much and I always wonder why I don't. It is kind of a chameleon of a color and I need to use it more. Do you use Sahara Sand and what are your favorite color combinations using it?
I used one of the Wintry 3D embossing folders to emboss the Basie White piece. There are 2 folders, one a snowflake design and the other a pine branch both are lovely.
The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember set. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed using white embossing powder on Sahara Sand CS.
To finish off the front of the card I added Red Rhinestones for a little shine and sparkle. If I use a patterned paper on the front of the card, I like to add a strip to the inside. I also stamped another sentiment from the Christmas to Remember set.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary design team created for this sketch.
