It is time for a new Thursday challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. It seems like it has been a long time – but it has really just been two weeks. I hope you enjoyed the double challenge – the shaped card using the sketch. But now it is time for a new one and this week is a color challenge – Wisteria Wonder, Baja Breeze, Silver Glimmer.
The only think I could think of was snowflakes. So I made some silver glimmer snowflakes and took a card I had made a couple of weeks ago and modified it to fit this color challenge. I originally saw a similar card on Pinterest and then on Heather Summer’s blog.
The card base is Baja Breeze. I cut strips of Whisper White and embossed them with the Snow Flurry embossing folder – and I actually go to use my new Texture Boutique Embosser – which Stampin’ Up! briefly had for sale – but they sold out so quickly – I do hope they get more in so everyone else can buy one too. After they were embossed I cut the ends to turn them into flags and attached them to the card base. I stamped the Christmas Blessings in Wisteria Wonder. I cut snowflakes with the Big Shot and the Silver Glimmer paper. The top one was colored with the Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Write Marker (I’m not positive that I like that – I think I should have left it silver). I layered all the snowflakes and put the Wisteria Wonder brad through the center and then finally added a bit of Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon behind it.
Finally I decided to get my Silver smooch and spray the whole card to give it more glimmer. It really doesn’t look good in the picture – it looks better in person – but I’m just not much of a glimmer girl so maybe I should have done without.
In any case this is my color challenge card for this week.
