Hi there! It's Thanksgiving week here in the US and I'm hurrying to write this so I can run off to do some grocery shopping. We're keeping it small and simple with only our son for company, but a special meal and desserts are a must, don't you think?
At the same time, I'm still working on Christmas cards. I wasn't able to be in my room at all for a couple of days, so I was trying for something relatively simple to make up for lost time. I used some new to me dies and came up with a rustic, woodsy card, which is my favorite look for Christmas.
My favorite Christmas paper does a lot of the work. The stag is two layers of white and one of red, giving it nice dimension on the wooden disk. I let the white show for highlights and better contrast against the disk. The disk was cut in ivory and sponged with inks. Added gold gems for dress up. I'll list everything in the recipe at the end.
I made four of these, which didn't take long at all once I decided what I wanted to do. There are miles to go yet before I call my Christmas cards done. How about you?
The wooden disk and stag dies are fresh out of the package, so today I'm remembering to join the fun at Darnell's NBUS Challenge #20. Thanks, Darnell!
I love when you all come to visit, so thank you for that. I never forget to be grateful for my blessings. Have a beautiful week!
