Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #227

Hey Everyone

I’ve been holding onto some news for over a week now – the Design Team at Create with Connie & Mary have asked me to join their team until the end of March!!! How exciting is that?  I’ve been playing along with their challenges for over a year now, so this is a big thrill for me.

This weeks challenge is to create a shaped card – it can be any shape – as well as using the following sketch:

I’ve had these window framelits sitting unused on my desk so this was a perfect opportunity to break them open and give them a run.  As usual I’ve gone with a feminine florally card, but this time I’ve made my own blossom (well, that’s what I’m calling it).

I’ve also made my card into an easel card which meant I had to decorate the inside.  I don’t always decorate the insides of my card when I first make them. I tend to leave it until the last minute, before I give away the card, which means a lot rushing around trying to finish them off.

We’d love for you to join us at Create with Connie & Mary this week – head over to the blog and check out the gorgeous inspiration the Design Team have created.

Thanks for taking a look.

  1. Congratulations on your news ,you will have lots of fun designing for Create with Connie and Mary gorgeous easel card , so pretty.

  2. Absolutely clever!! I love how soft and feminine this is! You are the queen of cutting! And all those little flowers – wow!! Love the easel card, too! So glad to be working with you on the team!

  3. Absolutely STUNNING card, Narelle…you hit the shaped card/sketch challenge out of the park!!! I love the soft colors, too! Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team!

  4. Oh, WOW! Absolutely gorgeous! Love the easel card. This is SO pretty! It must have taken forever to create all those little flowers and do all that fussy cutting. Great working with you on Create!

  5. I love the easel card as well as the standard card shape, not in easel form. Can you tell me how to run it through my Big Shot with a “fold”. I don’t want it to cut out the shape because it would have to be 2 pieces put together somehow. Can you tell me how to do it with a “fold” at the top?

    I’m a SU demonstrator in Michigan. Thank you!

  6. Wow! This is beautiful! I’m so excited to have you join the challenge team and see your creations each week. I just decided today that I need to get those window framelits – they are on my list to order this week during the sale.
