Stars, Snowflakes and Santa!

Welcome!  We have a wonderful sketch from Create with Connie and Mary today!  It includes a diagonal panel which is currently so trendy in papercrafting!


   
The background paper is from the All Is Calm DSP collection.. I love this paper and it is so pretty for snow scenes!  The vertical stripes are the luxurious Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon in the Holiday Catalog!  Yum! 


I used the Star Framelits to cut out the focal shapes from cardstock and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  The small center star and the snowflake are both heat embossed with embossing powder.


I love this Santa and sleigh silhouette stamp from the Holiday Home set and thought it was perfect flying across this snowy Christmas card!

Stamps:  Bright and Beautiful (star), Many Merry Stars (snowflake), Holiday Home (Santa sleigh)
Inks:  White Craft, Lost Lagoon
Paper:  All is Calm DSP; Lost Lagoon, Pool Party cardstocks, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  White and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (mixed), Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon,  Star Framelits, 7/8" Scallop Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Dimensionals.

Here's the super sketch from Create with Connie and Mary this week: 

Isn't this a fun sketch?  We would LOVE for YOU to make a card with this sketch too!  Share your creativity with us by uploading your sketch challenge card to Create with Connie and Mary website; the guidelines for the challenge are on their blog!

Thanks for visiting!  We have pulled out the heavy coats here because of a huge polar front that dropped our temps more than 40 degrees overnight from a perfect 75 to the 30's the next morning, and it's getting colder!  Brrr!  Hope you are well in your part of the world!
