Happy Holidays 2018 | ft. Lawn Fawn "Thanks a Latte", "For You, Deer" and a Bunch of Dies

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today I want to share a card (and video) as the first in this year's Happy Holidays series, featuring Lawn Fawn's "Thanks a Latte"and "For You, Deer" stamp sets, as well as several of their die sets!

I recommend watching HD over on YouTube!

It feels a bit early to start posting Holiday cards, but as I mention in the video, I got some new Lawn Fawn goodies so it just had to happen. I do still plan to be posting some Fall and Halloween themed cards, but it's cold and yucky out today so it just felt like a winter card. As many of you know, I'm in Alberta, Canada where winter starts early and sticks around forever. Let me tell y'all, my winter tires stay on the car longer than my not winter tires and that is just a sad, sad thing.

So not only am I able to use THREE different pieces of patterned paper, I actually did paper piecing for the scarf on the mug. I know!! Totally not something I would normally do, but there it is! To be honest, I saw it on the YouTubes and it was just too cute not to try.

If you click on over and check out the video, not only will you get to see how this card came together, you'll also get to hear my thoughts on the Tim Holtz/Tonic Glass Mat. I know he talks about it being a "game changer" in his intro video, but having tried it for myself, I can certainly recommend it. Blending is a whole lot better. 

I don't know if you noticed, but there isn't a whole lot of embellishments on this card. Maybe the more patterned paper I use, the fewer sparkles I feel the need to add. Not sure how I feel about that.

I hope you like today's card (and video) and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think!
