Let Our Lives Be Full

Hi everyone!

I'm up on the Neat & Tangled blog today with a card and step-by-step photos.

I wanted to use a Thanksgiving set in a (hopefully) non-Thanksgiving way. Here's what I ended up with:

Thanks & Giving

This card has everything but the kitchen sink--layering, die-cutting, stamping, heat embossing, splattering, watercoloring, sewing....I guess I didn't use patterned paper. Ha!

I started with watercoloring and then die-cut part of the Album Cover Lace on my Cameo. On top of that layer, I heat embossed the sentiment from Neat & Tangled's Be Full set. The embossing powder is glittery, which looks a little lumpy in photos (it's not).

Thanks & Giving

I stitched the panel onto the background to add some lift to the vellum. Here's a final picture of what the card looks like under the sentiment:

To see the steps for making this card, I have the pictures and steps on the Neat & Tangled blog. :)

Also, Danielle is having a Black Friday sale starting at 8am ET on Thursday (11/27) and running until Sunday (11/30)!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
