Let's Get Crafty...to Begin the Christmas Season

Today is turkey day and there is so much to be thankful for.  I am thankful for my journey to a whole new me.  I am also thankful for such wonderful family and friends.  Finally I am thankful for a hobby that I love, that calms me, and makes me smile.  Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been trying to decide what my Christmas Card for this years season and I think I found it.  The design has been playing around in my head for a while, but when I saw this challenge on Crafty Cardmakers I knew the last element I wanted to add, dry embossing.

So I have a white A2 card base I made with white cardstock.  The ornament shape I made using my Cricuit and a PNG file I made into a cut file.  I purchased the file from Polkadoodles on Etsy.  It is ftom the collection called Winter Wonderland.  I then cut the same shape out of some Cricuit silver glitter paper.  The sentiment I put on a Cricuit scalloped oval shape I found in design space.  I flattened that shape to make into a print and cut and had the Cricuit write the Merry Christmas out.

I used my swiss dot cuttlebug folder on the white background to add that dry embossed interest.  The green and white bakers twine makes it look like the ornament is hanging.  I layered the whole panel on some red cardstock with white polka dots.  This paper is from a paper pad from last Christmas from Recollections.  To add a bit more..something I added some green patterned washi to the bottom that is from Recollections as well.

If you end up getting one of these cards this season, I apologize in advance for you knowing what it will look like.

I am entering this into Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 177.

Thanks for stopping by!
