Paper Players 322

Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope that you will all be spending time with your loved ones today and eating far too much food. So much that you have to Black Friday shop online! LOL! I will be having a nice low key day at home, Taylor is going to come by for pizza and then she will be heading to work at 4:30. I did have a nice day yesterday. I went to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store to wait for FedEx and UPS, they were there by 11:30! From there I stopped by my old job and visited with my friends, it was so nice to see everyone! Nancy’s nice and nephew were there too! After that I headed over to Heather’s to run a few errands with her and then came home and had dinner with my Parent’s. After that Taylor and I took a ride back over to the Store because of course I forgot the things that I wanted to take with me from the deliveries! After that we did a quick trip to Target and then I came home and made my card for today! 😀

That card that I made is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…


I was very good and kept my card very CAS! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I heat embossed the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background onto a piece of Solar White 80lb with Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder. My images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Snowy Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the tree in Tide Pool and Mint Julep and then heat embossed the snow layer in more Sparkle Embossing Powder. The deer is stamped in Soft Brown three times with my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. My greeting is stamped in Tide Pool and all of the pieces are adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares, I used the Thin 3D Foam Squares on the deer to make him look like he’s behind the tree. I do love that Sparkle Embossing Powder, it looks so much nicer in person! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving! 🙂
