Christmas Cheer CCMC320

It's Thursday and that means another fun challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!   Today it's a color challenge using Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizazz and Smoky Slate! 


I think because these colors are in the new "All is Calm" Christmas DSP that made me think of a Christmas card; however I didn't use any of that DSP here.  I was, however, excited to use for the first time some of the new products from the Holiday Catalog!  Wow, don't you just love this new Filagree Frame embossing folder?!  And it's not just for Christmas but anytime!  



I used a Square Framelit to cut out the center of the Lost Lagoon layer and reveal the  Pear Pizzazz cardstock embossed with the Christmas Cheer stamp and  White Embossing Powder.  Snowflake Sequins from the Frosted Sequins Embellishment package are topped with small rhinestones for bling to finish off the design.  The card base is Smoky Slate.

Here are the colors we are using this week; aren't they gorgeous together?!



Check out the creations of the marvelous Design Team on Create with Connie and Mary's website to be inspired, then make your card according to the guidelines and then share it with us!!  We can't wait to see what you make using these colors!

Also remember to go back to Create with Connie and Mary's website on Saturday for a Blog Hop using products from the new catalog; this past Saturday every designer used the new Take Out boxes from the Holiday Catalog and came up with some really creative 3-D boxes!  Cool!  They are celebrating the on-going Holiday Card "Creat-ions".. you'll want to find out more about that!

Thanks for joining me today!  Have a stampin-good weekend!

This looks like a framed piece of art! Very pretty! Love the white embossing combined with the embossing folder.

I love how you added the snowflakes in a symmetrical pattern around the frame. Beautiful card and I also love that it can be used for Christmas or just a seasonal/winter card.
