Metallic cardstock is very trendy this year. I couldn't' resist giving it a try. The tricky part of using metallic paper is it is a magnet for fingerprints. You have to handle it the way you used to handle old photographs. It is worth the extra effort. The photos don't really do this card justice, but the shine of the gold paper looks amazing. I hope you will give this paper a try!

I'm so glad you stopped by today. I know this is a little bit out of season, but here in NY we are still mowing our lawns and raking leaves. I needed a thank you card for a neighbor who helped us out with our lawn. Connor has been traveling for work and it was starting to look a bit like a jungle. Our little push mower was not up to the job. Our neighbor came to the rescue with his riding mower came to save the day.
The stamp set is from Stampin Up. You can find the copic colors I used below.
This card is really simple to make, but it really pretty. I can't remember who make this Nativity style stamp It has been in my stash for years. It doesn't have any manufacturer information on the stamp.
I love the elegant sweeping lines they used to bring scenery and characters together. I used an old cuttlebug folder to add some texture to the frame. The pattern I chose was supposed to be a flower, but I think it also looked like the star of Bethlehem. What do you think? Do you see flowers or stars?
Wow! It's November! Where does the time go? We have been so blessed with a warm fall that I can't seem to get in the winter card mood. Well...I'm squeezing out one more fall card in today...
I've had this giant acorn die in my stash for a few years. I've been itching to use it. It is so large it works perfectly as the focal point on the surprise slider door. I had an extra hello die from the card I made the other day. I couldn't decide if I like the orange hello or the softer "Hello Autumn" sentiment strip.
Just an FYI...you can fit a gift card under the surprise door.
