Cheerful Christmas CCMC327

Hooray, It's Thursday and time for another fun challenge from Create with Connie and Mary! This week we have a great sketch which uses a "tilted" panel which is so trendy these days in papercrafting!  Here's what I did:

I'm really enjoying this Cheerful Christmas set from the Holiday Catalog!  As you can see, the style is truly influenced by Nordic designs; done in Cherry Cobbler it really warms up the design and to me looks like needlework!  I stamped the smaller image on Whisper White and diecut it with an Oval Framelit.  I cut the plaid paper for the background and adhered it to a Sahara Sand card cut at 4.5" x 11", folded at the top then adhered the oval with Dimensionals.

Next I cut a strip of Sahara Sand 1/2" x 4-1/4 and adhered it with Dimensionals and Snail adhesive.  On a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, I stamped the saying in VersaMark, heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder then adhered it with Dimensionals!  Viola, finished!

I made another card using a second background paper, also from the Trim the Tree Paper Stack.  I couldn't decide which one I liked better so stuck with my original one for the CWCM Thursday Challenge.  Tell me which one you like best... I just couldn't choose!!  (you can press the comment button below to leave your answer.)  Thanks!

Red, White, and Crumb Cake is one of my favorite color combinations especially for Christmas. I love how you used these colors on your cards. Both are beautiful.

The plaid ties in nicely with the Scandinavian snowflake. Great winter card!

This style really reminds me of some stitching my grandmother had...I gravitated to it right away, too! Beautiful textures and DSP patterns on your it! Great job with the sketch challenge this week!
