THICC #133 DT inspiration for 7 February 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This post is for a traditional DT commitment with The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge Blog. #133 starts on February 7, 2023 for just under 2 weeks. THICC is always Anything Christmas Goes

I received a new-to-me Cuttlebug and one of the embossing folders that I received from this marvelous Christian artisan became the focal for this outdoors vibe Christmas card. And with a small gifted die, I made the two specialty papered snowflakes.

Gathering the Tree for Christmas card =

a. Fun Stampers Journey = embossing folder for the trees and snowflakes scene

b. The Paper Studio = text print paper scrap

c. Dollar Tree store = plaid fabric remnant, twine, 2 cording, truck with bottle brush tree 'ornament' (I removed the thin black wire hanger), and wood grain decorative tape

d. Neenah = pale mint green cardstock

e. Colorbok = kraft cardstock

f. Sizzix =  Snowflakes #15 cutting die
