Winter Thanks {MFTWSC95}

Happy Wednesday afternoon! Hope you are having a great week. It's time for my My Favorite Things WSC sample. For some reason I was in a winery mood when I created this card. Seems  a little strange with temps near 80 around here this week. I was driven by these papers I guess. It's a holiday pack from My Mind's Eye called, All is Bright. 

I decided to make some wintry leaves. I puffy heart the MFT leaves!!! I have to say, I am excited about how they turned out. I got some new goodies from Ellen Hutson, and she packs here orders in this thin, brown packing paper. It is so fun to die cut and re-purpose for crafty projects. 

 I folded a piece over and cut two different leaf shapes with the FALL LEAVES DIE-NAMICS.  Folding the paper over, gave me two leaves with each shape. I added some distress ink to the leaves and stamped the vein image from the THANKFUL LEAVES STAMP SET. I then topped each leaf with some Rock Candy glitter. I layered up the matching leaf shapes and added dimensionals between them to give them some depth.  

I cut a third leaf from some corrugated cardboard. This time I brushed it with some crackle paint.  After that dried, I touched the edges with some of the same glitter. I also cut some snowflakes with my favorite winter die, LET IT SNOW Die-namics. I glitterfied each of those and tucked them in with my leaves.  Have I told you how much I those leaves???? You need them. 

A pop of red with a gorgeous Wild Cherry Button tied up with twine.
