Hey there everyone! Welcome to another week at Create with Connie & Mary! It's a sketch week at CCMC and the gals have drawn up a good one for you:
I have been feeling void of any mojo the last few days so my card is a very literal interpretation of the sketch even right down to the wavy ric-rack!
I took all my color choices from the Just Add Cake designer paper coloring the cute little snail with a Blender Pen and Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Peach Parfait ink pads. Are you wondering how I got the narrow ric-rack? After I cut the Baja Breeze cardstock with the Tasteful Trims die, I just slid the newly cut piece up a little on the die and ran it through again. It cut off just enough to give me a narrow piece that I layered on top of the Peach Parfait ric-rack. Just for fun, I added a trail of Dazzling Diamonds to make a sparkling snail trail. Tee, hee. The 2 1/2" circle was trimmed with a long piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock that was punched with the Scallop Ribbon Border punch, run through a paper crimper and adhered to the back with sticky strip. Finally, I just threaded the Baker's Twine through the tiny holes in the border and tied a bow. Had to finish off the inside too:
The designer paper is doing double duty both decorative and functional. It's hiding the sentiment that is right under the stamped snail!
