Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate tomorrow. We have so much to be thankful for as we gather together to celebrate another year as a family and count our blessings. I am so thankful for my family and friends both here and Georgia and on the net!
Well, I went and did it with this card. The Mother of all die-cut and punches I think...lol So in all fairness-it is going to my Mother. I think I am going to do a 12 days of Christmas surprise for her and send her something every day starting 12 days before Christmas. I am going to bake her favorite cookies "Cream Wafers" for one of the days. She doesn't put up decorations so I am going to send her a little tree that I found-she will adore it as she can put it on her coffee table. I'm making a list of 12 packages to send. It will be so much fun she won't know what to expect...lol
Back to my card. The inspiration for this came from the leftover paper I had lying on my table from my Christmas lantern card. It's the light brown paper you see in the background. I started cutting out snowflakes and distress inking them with Ranger Vintage Photo. The reindeer are a Tim Holtz die that I cut from cereal boxes, painted white, distressed the edges, painted with glitter glue, and sprinkled with Martha Stewart coarse clear glitter-twice. Yes, I glittered over glitter and it really made these reindeer sparkle. So now I will attempt to list all the dies I used on this card and supplies:
Spellbinders: For the focal point-Fleur de Lis Pendant, Scalloped Oval Nesties, Large Oval Nesties, Mega Fancy Tags 2, Foliage Shapabilities die
Sizzix: Tim Holtz Reindeer, Tim Holtz Snowflake On the Edge, Sizzix Architectural Accent Die
Martha Stewart Punches: Aspen Snowflake Punch Around the Page, Large Himalayan Snowflake, Medium Arctic Snowflake, Medium Branch Punch
Cuttlebug: Snowflake Embossing Folder
Other: Rangers Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Martha Stewart Course Crystal Glitter, Rangers Crackle Paint-Picket Fence, Diamond Dust Glitter, Diamond Stickles, Recollection Pearl Flourishes, Gold Mini Bells, White Plastic Snowflake from the $1 store, Recollection Pearls. Sentiment was from the Micheal's $1 bin, Sheer White Ribbon for the bow.
Well, I think I got everything. Thanks for stopping by today. I sure do appreciate it. Again Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your time with family and friends and make lasting memories.
