Vintage Christmas Card

Happy Day After Thanksgiving!  I have been so excited to share this card today.  It was so much fun to make.  I hope you take some time off from your shopping today and make a card or two also!
Maybe you can get all those cards made that you want to send to friends and family this year!

This card makes me think of Christmas Vacation, my favorite Christmas movie ever!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Heidi

Used to make this card:
Just For Fun Stamps:
F3510 Getting The Tree
D2568 Happy Holidays

I used white paper that I made the same width as the card itself and I tore the edges to make it look like snow peaks, then covered just the torn part with glue and sprinkled with glitter.  Once those were dry, I stacked them on top of each other and taped them down to my background.
I used Archival Jet Black Ink and Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise
I used distress markers to color my car and tree and people.
I used Stikels in Red to go around my Happy Holidays that I cut in half.
I attached the car and sentiment to the card with foam mounting tape.
I used Wink Of Stella for the headlights and chrome on the car to make it shinny.

Falling Leaves Card

Happy Fall everyone!  It's hard to believe we are almost halfway through November already.  This time of year goes by so fast.  Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. I wanted to make a card for Thanksgiving this year.  I don't always make a card for this time of year, but the pretty colors and the crisp air has been wonderful this year and I thought I would make some cards to take to my family.
When I step out my front door every morning I see this  tree in our yard with warm purple, burgundy and orange colors, so that was my inspiration for this card.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get to make some fun cards for Thanksgiving.
Hugs, Heidi
