Happy Thursday, y'all, and welcome to another week with the gals at Create with Connie & Mary. This week we have a sketch challenge, which I think have to be my favorite! I always find the layout to be the most difficult part of the design process and with a sketch challenge that's already done for you! Here is the sketch for CCMC190:
This one was right up my alley as I love the trimming the main image with the Decorative Label punch and adding just a smidge of ribbon. So that's exactly what I did:
Everything was inspired by the Timeless Portrait designer series paper from the images and patterns to the colors. The River Rock base was layered with some patterned paper of the same color and I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler dsp trimmed in a little ribbon of Island Indigo cardstock cut with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch. There is actually very little stamping on this because the boy & girl silhouettes were cut directly from the designer paper and layered on top of some basic black cardstock run through the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and punched with the Ticket Corner punch. A little striped grosgrain ribbon, some Baker's Twine and two tine tags completed the look. This card was designed as a birthday card for a co-worker with two children so I thought the silhouettes were perfect! Pretty simple when the Designer Paper does all the work!
