30 Day Gratitude Challenge: Day 13

Happy Friday!  With a gratitude challenge it really does make you think about all you have to be thankful for, health, family, friends, etc.  We have been so blesses and I’m looking forward to enjoying time this weekend with all those things I’m thankful for.  Tonight Aidan has Ninja Night that he’s really excited about which means “date night” for mommy and daddy and we’re also really excited, we’re going to go see the new James Bond movie, whoo hoo!  Before all the fun begins I wanted to share today’s gratitude card, it’s another holiday themed one based on a card from class last month.

I started with Early Espresso cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper.  I used another pattern from the same DSP package for the tall panel.  The greeting is from the Tin of Cards stamp set (even if you don’t have the Card Tin kit, which really is awesome, the coordinating stamp set is a must have for all types of occasions!) and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock using Early Espresso ink and matted it with Early Espresso cardstock.  I added the cute little tree element and used the Lots of Joy stamp set and stamped it in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock and used my Paper Snips to cut it out before attaching it with dimensionals.  I added a knot using the Gold Satin Ribbon that is so bright and shiny and really helps dress up the card.

I love the addition of glimmer to the card that dresses up the card and helps make it special (especially for the holidays!!)  You can also make a ton of these cards using the Merry Momments Designer Series Paper Stack (the one that’s in the Holiday Catalog) so you could easily make this your holiday card as well (when you cut the DSP you can get both panels out of one piece of DSP).
