Happy New Years Eve everyone!
I thought I’d pop by today and show the card I made for my Dad’s birthday yesterday. To be honest, my Dad doesn’t fully appreciate this whole card thing. He barely takes a second look at the card....but this is what I do, so even if he doesn’t fully appreciate it, it is an act of love to him from me :)
I found a gorgeous card created a couple of years ago here that I think is a perfectly constructed card. She had created it with SU products, but I wanted to see if I could recreate it/CASE it myself with some of my The Cat’s Pajamas goodies. I love how it turned out! I started with TCP’s Holiday Toppers CutUps die to create the scene of the trees and farm, cutting on the textured gray cardstock, and then cutting it on the Neenah Natural White cardstock. After I had the creamy cardstock cut out, I inked it completely with VersaMark ink, added Heat and Stick Powder and then while it was still hot, dumped lots of shimmery glitter over top. I tapped it off a bit and heat set it a little so that the glittery wouldn’t blow off (but man there was glitter everywhere, I’ve transferred it to all my family members!). I created the moon with a large 1 3/4 inch punch in the Pool Party cardstock.
Finishing details include glittery snowflakes from TCP’s Snowman Accessory Kit, and then the sentiment from TCP’s Simply Stacked Sentiments. Seambinding, rhinestones and silver cording complete it. It’s beautifully shimmery in real life.
Happy New Year’s and 2016 from our family to yours! This photo is from a family photo shoot our dear friend and talented photographer ClaraCecilia took of us. I love this shot because it feels like we’re in a Church surrounded by the steeple of trees.
Blessings to each of you as you celebrate and welcome a new year!
