That’s right! It’s time for a Create with Connie and Mary sketch. Happens every Thursday!
Here is the sketch we are challenged with this week –
And , since our temperatures have gone from a sweltering 98 degrees to a brisk 85 degrees, it’s time to pull out the sweaters!!!
Well, I pulled out my Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder that is! I created this cozy little number –
How about this? Cozy right?
And, quite fitting for the temperature drop you’d say?
I knew immediately when I saw this sketch just what I was going to do with it. I really loved the idea of the angled piece of sweater with the new Copper Foil.
I played with several different adornments for the focal area. Ultimately, I decided on a button and bow!
I know. According to the sketch, I should have had the sentiment on the sweater – it just didn’t look right. It’s stunning here off to the side.
I love this card so much that it might make the Card Buffet later on in the month! Don’t you think it’d be great for a class?
TIP – when using this dynamic folder (it’s very hard and really thick) spray/spritz a little water onto your card stock or paper before you emboss it. It will soften the paper fibers a bit to make it malleable to take on the intricate details of the folder. Let it dry before you adhere it to your project. I forgot to do that this time and my card stock is a little rough-looking.
I’ve had a chance to have a sneak peek at the other designers take on this sketch! You should see them for yourself at Create with Connie and Mary. I hope we inspire you enough to play along with us!
