Merry & Bright PCCCS#166

By | October 17, 2015

So how’s the weather in your neck of the woods? It’s getting cold here, we might even have our first frost tonight and see a snowflake or two, something I am just not ready for. I’ve even had to break out my closed in shoes vs. wearing my flip flops or sandals.  I had a great Friday working on numerous projects and making a great dinner (corn casserole with barbeque chicken, followed by homemade apple pie). Now on to card making . . .

Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch. I’d like to say thanks to the Design Team over at Paper Craft Crew for picking my card from challenge #164 as a Team pick, you can see that card by clicking here. Below is the banner for this weeks challenge.



This was a fun card to design, I started by looking at a bunch of scraps I had laying around and slowly piece by piece it all came together. The card base is Crumb Cake with mats of Basic Black and the Music Paper from Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. Next I stamped the wreath from Wondrous Wreath in Old Olive & Mossy Meadow and used the matching die to cut it out with my Big Shot.  From there I pulled together a scrap of the new Gold Glitter Ribbon using glue to adhere to the card, next the cute deer I had fussy cut out was adhered to a scrap of Real Red and adhered behind the middle of the wreath; the wreath is backed with dimensionals and adhered to the card. In the lower right corner of the wreath is some linen thread behind a Lost Lagoon 1″ circle, on top is a die cut ‘Merry’ from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits dies and the ‘ & Bright’ from the Holly Jolly Greeting stamp set. The stamp set and dies can be purchased as a bundle to save 15%. To finish off the card is a Home for Christmas Designer Button with a linen thread bow, adhered with a glue dot. This is such a cute card to send to someone special!

    Your card has put me in the holiday mood, Karen! Great use of the music sheet DSP, and the deer peeking through the wreath is cute. I like the use of the Home for Christmas Designer Button; it pulls the red through from the wreath wonderfully. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew. ~Deborah
