Happy Thursday friends, and welcome to another week at Create with Connie & Mary! Are you ready for Christmas? I'm not! I am nursing what has become my annual Christmas cold however, so today's card for Connie & Mary is verrrry clean and simple. The gals gave us a beautiful color duo:
Which just screams out for one last Christmas card don't you think? I rallied myself and what little creativity I could muster between cough syrup and antibiotics to make this for you:
The card base really is brushed silver cardstock even though it doesn't photograph well. On that I layered some basic grey and whisper white cardstock. I had the idea for the rows of Silver Glimmer snowflakes, made with the Northern Frost decorative strip, but laid out on the white they needed a little something to make them pop.
That's when I got the idea to back the snowflakes with strips of Basic Grey satin ribbon. I really like the combination of the preppy styled stripes with the glimmer snowflakes. A Basic Grey sentiment from Hand-Penned Holidays finished it off for me!
And that will do it for today. I hope you'll join us at Create with Connie & Mary and make something sparkle with this gorgeous color duet. Be sure to check out the rest of the design team for some wonderful inspiration. Deadline to play along is Wednesday, December 28th at Noon (EST).
This will likely be my last post before Christmas so I want to thank all of you for your daily visits, comments and encouragement--it means so much to me that you keep coming back and like what you find here. You're the reason I keep doing this! To all my friends, followers and readers, I wish you the happiest of Holidays and good times spent with your loved ones. Happy Holidays to you and yours!
