Season's Greetings

Did you have a good Thanksgiving celebration yesterday?  We had dinner with my dad and his wife.  Have to admit it is painful with my mom not there.  She passed 4 years ago.  And Christmas is still very tough. But I'm thankful for my memories of mom and how she enjoyed the holidays.

Yesterday I finished a card as I gear up for Christmas.  It's very simple.

I've done many in this style and I still love doing them.  I basically used a die to cut out the outline with part of it off the paper.

I splattered the top layer after stamping with Cool Pool Silk and added the fun Sweet Candy Drop to the center of the negative space.   I only used 2 card stocks, Whip Cream and Cool Pool.  The sentiment is from the Sparkle Trim stamp set and I used Black Licorice ink.  And the die I used was Frosty Snowflake.  I will come up with an idea to use the die cut on another card later. I also used my Easy Glide Runner, Foam Squares med., and my Platinum machine.

This card only took a few minutes to whip out and is great for mass producing! Do you have a favorite to make?
