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.
