Time for Thanksgiving and Christmas

I made these two cards a couple weeks ago, for a card kit swap on the Cricut MB. I {heart} that MB.

Two versions of this one. I couldn't decide whether I liked the big or small snowflakes better. The small ones were already glittered. The big ones I glitter by painting them (the snowflakes are foam shapes) with glitter paint.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark, them embossed it in white.  The white decorative border strip was done using a scrap of white GP CS and the MS border punch. The dark blue CS and snowflake DP are from HL. The other blue CS is from a MM pad and the white is GP. Don't ya love acronyms, makes us sound like scientists rather than crafters.

I fell in love with this DP at HL. I knew it would make a gorgeous Thanksgiving card. Scored it for 20cents a sheet too! I really love this card in RL, it looks so regal.

The cardstock is Bazzill. DP from HL. Satin Ribbon is from my stash and the white circle and orange scalloped circle are made from scraps. I got to use my Nestabilities for the first time ever on this card. Oh my! Do I ever {heart} them! The pumpkin image is from Impression Obsession and is colored with a combination of MM and Sharpie Markers.

I printed the sentiment from the computer onto a strip of the Bazzill CS, and cut it out with the Stampin UP! word window. That is one greatly versatile punch!

Time for bed now.

Cheerios and Toodles!
