I have really been looking forward to using the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper from the July - December 2021 Mini Catalogue, it is just so much fun! You are going to love the iridescent shimmer that this paper has! It was perfect for this week's sketch challenge for Create with Connie & Mary.
When you are looking for ideas to make a card, a sketch inspiration is a great way to start! Just find a layout that you love and then add in your favourite products. Here is a picture of the original sketch that you could use for your own project.
For my card, I chose a neutral Misty Moonlight background from the Whimsy & Wonder DSP and cut it to the size of the card front, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I then chose a coordinating pattern that had the beautiful iridescent shine on it and cut it to 2 1/2" x 4 1/2". I made a mat for this piece from Mint Macaron cardstock, cut at 2 5/8" x 4 5/8".
My favourite part though, might be the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper! This paper is just incredible and so much fun to work with, it adds an awesome bit of bling to your project! I just added this little strip here, cut at 4" x 1/2". The sentiment comes from my other favourite, the Holly Jolly Wishes Stamp Set and it is layered on a simple piece of linen thread! If you want to add more shine, just choose your favourite gems. I love the Holiday Rhinestones as they will go with almost any of your holiday projects!
