Gratitude

We're working on turning our home into a Christmas wonderland.  The weather has been pretty warm lately, but it's settling into the mid-60's for a while now.  I thought I'd mix up some of the ingredients in our December Fresh Baked Kit and this is what I came up with...
...warm thoughts for your chilly December days
The pretty patterns of the Honey Cake 6 x 6 pad offer lots of cheerfulness to this card.  There are polka dots, stripes, florals and lots more on the 24 double-sided pages in this pack.  The pennants were made with a Marvy punch and they're topped with platinum Stickles.  Those pennants are strung along dreamy Cappuccino baker's twine from The Twinery and it's tied off on a brand new Maya Road vintage button stick pin.
NEW vintage button stick pin
{Note: I experimented with coloring the white pin head with a Copic marker and I got a pretty good result...I love color coordinated embellishments!}  The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts and I also used the Thank You Script stamp from the Fresh Baked Kit on the inside of the card, along with a small strip of coordinating patterned paper along the left side.  I used a rich, creamy paper (Brockway Deckle Edge from Cut Cardstock) in the center. The rounded corners finish this soft spoken card.  Have a wonderful weekend!
Pin It!
