It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week it is a color challenge.
Another great color combination that I would have never put together on m own. I am working on getting more Christmas cards made so I turned to the Cottage Wreaths bundle.
The wreath is Mint Macaron ink on Mint Macaron cardstock. The Country Wreaths dies cut out the Mint Macaron wreath and the fabulous Poppy Parade bow. The little dots, I mean berries were cut using the Dots and Spots die. I know I can punch them out with a hole punch but with one partial run through of the die I can have all the berries made. Both the berries and the bow were shimmerized (my new word for the look of Wink of Stella) with some Wink of Stella. The wreath is attached to a label cut using the Scalloped Contours dies. The sentiment is from the Leaves of Holly stamp set and inked in Poppy Parade ink.
The Poppy Parade CS layer was embossed using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. This folder is 3-3/8" wide so I ran the Poppy Parade layer through twice. Fortunately the design is such that you cannot really tell that the design doesn't "match" up. Inside I added a strip of Mint Macaron CS and another Poppy Parade bow.
Inside I used a sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set. This set has some of my very favorite Christmas sentiments and lots of other ones too!
