Paper Players 73 and Stamping 411 Sketch 230

Monday, November 21, 2011

I absolutely loved Jaydee's challenge for us this week at The Paper Players.  The challenge is to make a card that is clean and simple using the colors Night of Navy, Whisper White and silver.


The design team cards are absolutely gorgeous and really got my creative juices flowing.  So I thought I'd make a card combing this challenge with the sketch at Stamping 411.



I wish I didn't have such a hard time getting a decent photo of a white card.  The color is always off.  Argh!  But anyway, as you can see, I substituted the square scallop from the sketch for some plain rectangles because I really wanted to use the tree from Season of Joy and it didn't look so great on a square.  (What I really need are some rectangle scallop dies and my problem would be solved)!

I embossed the tree and the sentiment (also from Season of Joy) in silver embossing powder.  And I don't mind saying that in real life, it looks fantastic.  Not a stray piece of embossing powder to be had!  Thank you Embossing Buddy!!

I'm in the home stretch of my vacation and today I'm homebound while my car is getting a ding on my bumper fixed.  My plan is to stay focused and finish up my Christmas cards.  And if I can squeeze it in, I'll try to work on some Christmas treats too.

Thanks for stopping by!
