CCMC 229

Good Morning, Stampers!

I am SO EXCITED to be back on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday

Today's challenge is a fun sketch:

I couldn't resist transforming this to a Christmas card!

3. Punch a 4 1/4" piece of Real Red cardstock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch. 
4. Adhere it to the bottom of a piece of 1 1/4 x 4 1/4" Newsprint DSP.
5. Adhere a 1" x 3" piece of striped Candlelight Christmas DSP to the back of the newsprint DSP on an angle.
6. Adhere the entire piece to the card front and trim the egde.
7. Stamp the ornament in Real Red ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Cut.
8. Stamp the circle image onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Old Olive ink. Punch with a 1" circle punch.
9. Adhere the (2) pieces together using a Stampin' Dimensional. Adhere to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
10. Stamp the sentiment in Old Olive ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Punch with the jewlery tag punch.
11. Adhere to the top of the ornament.
