Hello! Happy Thanksgiving a few days early. This year, we are celebrating on Friday. The Thanksgiving meal is my favorite meal to fix all year. Depending on who is doing what with which family, I have made two dinners in one week to celebrate it with the different families when we have had to accommodate different work schedules.
I couldn't decide which critters to use from the Simply Celebrate Winter Critters stamp set, so I decided to use a few from three different ones. Of course, then I had to use the Large Slimline With Sliders. For the the litttle critter sentiments, I used the Simply Celebrate Winter Critters Add On.
The critters were colored with Copic markers in the following colors:
N1, N2, N3, N4, N6, B21, B24, B24, YR01, YR04, E31, E33, E35, E53, E55, E57, R20, R21, R22, R29
I used the rectangle from the Scalloped Box Card Pop Up for the packages. I also used the little pieces that are the posts for the banner for the ribbon on the package from that same die. I centered the ribbon and bow on the rectangle and then trimmed it to 1" and an 1/8" tall. The bow is from the Merry Mistletoe die. The little trees are from the Build A Snow Globe die. The ornaments in the snow are from the Christmas Palm Tree die. The gingerbread, candy canes and wreath are from the Build A House Gingerbread Add On die.
I have just recently started making slimline cards, so I don't have a lot of the border dies.....yet. For the Forest Border die, I just made sure that the I cut it twice, with it joining under the reindeers. The snow in the foreground is cut with the Stitched Hillside Border. I just lined up the die a couple of times to create the length I needed. I used the Sandy Beach Accents to cut openings in the snow so I could bury some of the elements to add interest to the foreground.
This turned out to be a fun little Christmas card. Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving Holiday if you celebrate it and if you don't, I hope you have a fantastic day!
