Plum and Gold Joy

Monday, November 12, 2012

Yes, I'm finally back!  Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of card making?  LOL!

This card is for a couple of challenges - the CAS sketch challenge by Teresa Kline and the CR84FN67 challenge to use plum, gold and tan:

It's really quick and easy to do...just like a CAS card should be!  I simply cut 2" strips of various papers from my stash and then decided their length and placement on the card.  To turn the strips into banners, a square nestie was used since I didn't have a square punch that was large enough.

Then I used a snowflake embossing folder for the lower left corner and added some gold pearls in different sizes.  Added a simple sentiment and done!  Easy peasy right?

Here's what I used:
Paper:  these papers are from my stash and they are old...the only one I know is the vellum paper which is from Daisy D, Gina K. Pure Luxury Heavy Weight card stock
Ink:  SU! Concord Crush
Stamps:  Verve Merry Wishes
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Spellbinders square nesties, Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder, misc. gold pearls, ATG

Have a wonderful week everyone!
