I love it when you can combine TWO challenges and get one simply sensational card! Today I combined the color challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary with the Fall-To-Layout 210 sketch at the Clean & Simple blog and came up with this holiday card:
I debated whether to add something to it, but I *really* like it just the way it is…and with the silver glimmer paper, it’s even prettier in person! Of course, I tend to gravitate toward simple and elegant cards with a touch of sparkle, but I hope you like it too. It used a-little-bit-of-this and a-little-bit-of-that Designer Series Paper…why not pull out your stash and try your hand at this sketch too? The stamp is from the “Greetings of the Season” set on page 8 of the Holiday Catalog (which you can download from my sidebar).
Let me share the EASIEST way to make a perfect “flag”…taught to me by one of my Stampin’ Family, Kelly H. WARNING: This may change your life! Start by cutting a slit straight into your paper from the side center where you want the flag to be:
Then cut from the corners into the point of your slit. I KNOW!!! It’s so simple! I haven’t used a square punch since she showed me this! Thanks again, Kelly 🙂
Don’t forget to leave your comment because I am still giving away all the cards I share here in September to celebrate my 20th Anniversary with Stampin’ Up!
Update: Connie will be getting this card in the mail…thanks for visiting, Connie! I admire your work and am happy to share this card with you 🙂
