…hoping you have a great Thanksgiving!
One of the cards I got at Founder's Circle was this awesome card by Kelly Acheson (Hi Kelly, Beth told me you said hi!!) and I knew I had to do it for my Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards, it is beautiful and pretty easy. Plus it's one ink pad. You can't beat that when you are making 100 Christmas cards… or however many you make. Kelly used a different greeting and embossing folder, so I just changed it that much, so basically it's still Kelly's card.
Stamp Set: Scenic Season, Home for Christmas
Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy
Misc: Northern Flurry embossing folder, Dazzling Diamonds, 2 1/2" circle punch, 1" circle punch, Stampin' Sponge
To get the moon look. Stamp your trees in Night of Navy on Whisper White cardstock. Punch out with the 2 1/2" circle punch. Using a 1" circle punch, punch out a piece of post it note paper, make sure to leave some of the sticky stuff on the back, that way it will stay on the cardstock when you sponge. Put the post it note circle over top of the bird flying (this is why you left the sticky stuff on the back of the post it note). Using your stampin sponge, sponge Night of Navy ink over the trees, making sure to avoid the snow area under the trees. When you get the desired darkness, remove the post it note circle and you will have a moon. Cool eh?
I hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving day and you are all filled with yummy foods, and you have lots of family and friends around you.
Make sure you get lots of sleep, especially if you are one of those shoppers who get up at the crack of dawn for Friday. If not, make sure you are back here tomorrow, you don't want to miss my post.
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
Hope your day is delightful!!

Very pretty – I really like that Northern flurry embossing folder.
I love that stamp set and I always put a moon on there, too. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Check out Anna's green egg, too!

Gorgeous!! Love the glitter on the trees! You have yourself a great Thanksgiving! I am celebrating on Saturday. More family could get here if we waited and afterall it's all about family. That makes today just a wonderful day of leisure for me. I'm going to get really inky before it's all over. A big thanks to you for sharing your time and creativity with us!

Happy Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful day!
Great card … here's a tip too … if you don't have a post-it note, you can always use computer paper and Dotto from Stampin' Up!. It is a great temporary adhesive that is easily removable from your project using the adhesive remover eraser Stampin' Up! has.
