HOLIDAY MINI SPOTLIGHT SERIES - DAY TWO
Holiday Mini fall spotlight project featuring the stamp set Always Thankful! I love the images in this set, they are very versatile and just rich with lots of detail! VERY fun to color, which I love :-) I decided to make a tri-fold card because I really wanted to show off some more of the yummy Spice Cake Designer Series paper. As you can see, all the patterns of this paper are absolutely beautiful - I love this particular one because it is soooo vibrant! I am sure the picture does not do it justice but this is by far my most favorite pattern in the pack (although I DO love it all, lol!) I did all the scoring for this card using my new Simply Scored scoring tool in the Mini. If you don't have this tool you NEED it!!! It is awesome and makes doing a lot of score lines a snap to do! Seriously, this has several and it took me a minute to get them all done - love that!!! I did take some More Mustard card stock and use that as my accent color for this card. I added some pretty scallops along the edges using my Eyelet Border punch - doesn't it look nice??!! And, the belly band is also More Mustard but I stamped it with the Netting background stamp to give it some texture. I really like this background stamp because it looks great both bold and subtle and I find myself reaching for it quite often. Then of course I had to show you another pattern of the glorious Spice Cake Fabric!!

If you don't have a Holiday Mini and you would like one, you can click on the link and it will take you directly to the online version, or you can contact me and I will send one out to you! You have to see all the fun things in this mini - just pure holiday joy!!! Now, I am off to run some errands and then back home to stamp the day and night away! Everyone else has plans tonight so it is just me and the dogs and my stamps - yes, this makes me smile, I love alone time :-) See ya tomorrow!!
