CCMC Sketch Challenge # 245

Good Morning, Stampers!

Create with Connie and Mary has given us a fabulously quick and easy sketch this week! I think this would be great for making a multiple number of cards for a quick thank you, don't you think? I will definitely be using this again in the near future!


Happy Birthday Ties


I love how fast this card came together! I stamped the ties in Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Ridinghood Red markers and cut them out. I adhered them to the hanger clip using glue dots. Next, I embossed the striped embossing folder about 2" from the bottom and added the Crumb Cake zig zag from the Sizzix Tasteful Trim die. A quick stamp of the sentiment in Early Espresso and a couple of glue dots for the hanger and it was complete!

This is just too clever to have ties hanging from the clip! Love it! What a great card for any guy!

Such a fun idea to "hang" the ties on the little cute clip hanger. I've enjoyed be part of the challenge team with you. Thanks for sharing all your creations.
Happy Stamping!
