Finally cards!

I haven't seen my stamping friend Cathy for it seems FOREVER so we decided to get together & stamp one day. She is also a SU! demo & she had some other sidelines & her downline there to play too. This card was one of the two projects we did which I love. I didn't take a pic of the other cuz I forgot about it until I started typing this......I will post it soon though. Cathy had us use a SU! Kraft envelope which we folded for this card. She used the SU! Big Shot die to cut the scallops for the envelope flap. All products are SU! that went into this card. I ended up adding the peace stamp & paper to the opened envelope part after I came home. The pull out card we left blank to put whatever we wanted so I decided to all the scallop square stamp & punch to it. Fun card I need to order some of these cute little envelopes ( believe it or not..........Sue Ann doesn't have these envelopes yet. Lordy, Lordy there is at least 1 thing in the catty that Sue Ann doesn't have. I guess by now she does though...LOL we love you Sue Ann)

I used Pearl ex and versamark for the background and then added some stickles to make it shine a little more. I then punch out the white snowflakes using shimmering white SU! cardstock, adding stickles to those too.

This card was inspired by Donna Mundinger at Popsicle Toes.
Her stuff is amazing...go check her out. Sam sent me her link. I used SU! DS paper Holiday Treasures for the background, the SU! Top Note Bigz Die, Martha Stewart punch with various shades of green paper & cs for the tree. I also used the Gingerbread cut outs that my good friend Jenn cut out for me.(She knows I love gingerbread).
Thank you Jenn!!!! Sam & Donna to for the inspiration.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
