I'm sure many of us are thankful for so many blessings this holiday season. I know I'm thankful I live in a country where we can celebrate in the manner we choose - whether it be secular or religious. I'm thankful for those who defend that right for me. It seems I turn on the news every day to see yet another sect of people attacked viciously for their beliefs. Our country may have some issues needing resolution, but I am still thankful I'm here as I'm sure many of you are thankful you live in countries where you have similar rights.
Now, on to the card! All cardstock/paper is CTMH. The blue gems and button are from my stash. I believe the folder is an Embossabilities folder.
Those gems, oh those little blue gems, are STILL left over from Katie's wedding. They've been married a year and a half now. I think those gems are multiplying!
The Baker's Twine is also from CTMH. I had a question recently about how I keep the CTMH Baker's Twine stiff. Ok an old candle is the secret! Simply run the string over the candle and it gives it stiffness to keep the shape you intend.
Now, that mesh is from Menards; it is a drywall mesh. I inked it over a piece of thin veneer and now it has the pattern on it. That was set aside for another project. The mesh is very flat and fold-able, so you can manipulate it how you like.
The leaf, half doily, and tags are from Art Philosophy.
The pattern on the Olive cardstock is made using the stamp below. I used this stamp set for the sentiment as well. The set is in the Pathfinding Cardmaking Workshop. You can also find the pretty background paper along with other fun goodies in there! I like this pattern because it incorporates so many beautiful colors!
All CTMH is from KatiesCorner! Keep an eye out for some exciting additions coming soon to the CTMH line! You'll be thankful you did! ; )
