It's Card Kit Time!!!

I can't belive that it's almost Thanksgiving! When I saw this great kit from Terri, I had Christmas on my mind!

Look at all those papers!!! At first glance, I see "rustic Christmas," and here is what I came up with:

I was originally going to design a "Santa Girl," but changed my mind and decided to go with a cute roly-poly santa. I cut the santa's belt from a couple of clouds from the kit, and layered the mesh behind the santa for texture.

I used modeling paste to add even more texture, and I LOVE all the sparkly cabochons in this kit! I used them ALL in my projects:

The canvas was all I had planned, but as I was waiting for the Mod Podge and modeling paste to dry, I started cutting more paper and made a couple of cards.

I lifted this first card from Mara. I ADORED her card when I saw it and was wondering where I could get some burlap. Luckily, Terri sent a piece of burlap in just the right size for this card:

For this card, I played with the cute stamped images from Terri:

The bird cage had some extra swirls around the bottom that looked messy with the bling swirl, so I mixed some acrylic paint to match the background and carefully painted the swirl out. You can't even tell!

I also glued a circle of PP behind the clear button. It makes a cute embellishment.

I thought I was done, but Terri also sent us a cute stamp set that I wanted to ink up. I also made a thank-you take just because it's Thanksgiving:

The cute Christmas tree stamp came with some red and green bling. I love how the black stamping came out against the embossed foil.

And lastly, Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Now go see the what the other ladies have created with this kit:
