It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week we have a color challenge. Honestly when I first saw this combination I was stumped.
Hmmm, then it dawned on me that these are the same colors in the Tartan Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Tartan Foil Specialty DSP is part of the Online Exclusives offerings and the colors in the DSP pack are...you guessed it, Copper Clay, Pebbled Path, and Lost Lagoon. Once I figured that out it was much easier.
Not your traditional Christmas colors but I think it works. The Tartan Foil DSP has a subtle foil shine-you can kind of see it in the photo. If you like the full on shine of foil this isn't it. On this card I used both side of the DSP. The centers of the ornaments are the same color but with the addition of white.
The Handcrafted Elements dies was a standalone die set in the 2023 September-December Mini Catalog (page 21) and are currently 10% off, while supplies last. I die cut each ornament in the corresponding card stock and then added the middle piece in the Tartan Foil. The ornaments also have embossed designs on them in addition to the stitching. They are so pretty! I am going to make a few for my Christmas tree.
On each ornament I have a bow tied using the Silver & White 1/2" Sheer Ribbon. I really like this ribbon. Not only is it so pretty but it ties beautifully. The ribbon is on the Carryover List so you will still be able to purchase it. YAY! I also added a bit of sparkle to each ornament, the Adhesive Backed Glitter Sequins. These sparkly sequins are not carrying over so you need to purchase them now. The sequins can be used all year round and they come in blue, white (what i used), and Old Olive.
The sentiment is from the Beary Cute stamp set. Unfortunately the whole Beary Christmas Suite is on the Last Chance list. You can see the Last Chance List here. Items on the list are only available while supplies last and some items have already sold out. Be sure to check out the list!
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for the challenge!
