My husband and I had walked into the local homestore today and I saw the Christmas aisles and a feeling of joy rushed over me. I love the holidays! As I looked around, I was like a kid in a candy store. The beautiful lights, ornaments and decorations put me in the mood to celebrate. One thing I have been thinking of over the last few days is about people who aren't able to visit family and friends and how often they celebrate alone, sometimes even forgotten. They don't need to be, though. Remembering these people and bringing a warmth to their holiday season can be as simple as giving them a card.
I created this card to share the Thanksgiving happiness with someone. For it, I used the embossing frame folder to create a mat for the collage photo. After I ran the folder through my embossing machine, I cut around the embossed area and inked the edges. I used the Happy Thanksgiving collage sheet for the photo and adhered it to the mat using a UHU glue stick. The background is a piece the 6 x 6 Joyeux Noel (it goes great for Thanksgiving, too!) cut from corner to corner with the edges inked using the Sepia Ink Pad by Paris Trunk to give it a vintage look. I, then, adhered onto a piece of green cardstock.
Be sure to share the happiness of this holiday season with someone. Make them a card and bring the joy to others!
