Poinsettia

Hi friends.  Cooked up a storm this morning.  Did everything I could to prepare ahead of time so I can

have less to do tomorrow.  After I post this card, I am going to get the table set up for our Thanksgiving feast.  Can't wait to smell that giant bird cooking in the morning.

I made four of these cards for my friends that are coming for lunch in December.  I have a little gift bag and I have showed you the things I have made already.


 A white on white card.  5x7 base card.
Mat is embossed with Darice snowflakes embossing folder
Beautiful die is Cuttlebug, by Anna Griffin
Corners are a Paper Shapers punch run through the dotted swiss
folder.  Poinsettia is a digi colored with Copics, sprayed with
Gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water in a mini spritzer.
Some Chunky white Fran-tage EP was Sprinkled on
the flower and embossed from underneath so it doesn't blow off when you use
the heat gun.


The inside
Nordic snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch.  Die is Spellbinders
Sentiment is embossed in gold

Thanks for stopping by today.  
Enjoy Thanksgiving 
Until later......

This is just gorgeous, Sue. Your friend are going to love it as much as the little bags you made for them. I'm going to put my turkey in the oven now. I, too, love that smell when he starts to cook. Have the happiest of Thanksgivings my friend.
