Missing You for CCMC413

It’s Thursday and time for a Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge!

This week, we’re going with a layout instead of a color –

CCMC413

This is quite simple when you look at it. However, creating with it for was a ‘challenge’ as the name implies.

After a few attempts and scraped cards, I went with this simple execution –

libbystamps, stampin up, Thoughtful Banners, Playful Palette DSP, Duet Banner Punch, CCMC413

I was rather pleased if I do say so myself!

I guess I’m missing my Boston and LA girls…….it happens. And, luckily there is a stamp for it.

I just received this stamp and punch bundle. It’s really a great set of words!

Initially, the focal point was on the card base. I felt it needed a little oomph. So, I added another layer of Very Vanilla and raised it with dimensionals.

I also decided to pop up the focal point too. It’s all it needed!

Sometimes when we make cards we have to tweak them until we get just the right balance of dimension. Here, I did it. So, I stopped.

For you, looking at the sketch, you like it? Are you drawn to it? If so, then please create a card and play along with us over at Create with Connie and Mary! You can also see all the other Design team creation too!

I’d love to read your thoughts on my clean and simple take on this layout this week.

  1. Great choice of papers for this sketch, and I love how the sentiment stands out! Great clean and simple card – well, simple to CASE anyway, I know the creative process is not always so simple!

  2. Perfect Libby! I love your paper choices and your card absolutely proves that sometimes less most definitely is more! A well executed card that is modern and fresh!
