Hello Stampin’ Friends and a Happy Labor Day to you!
Today I have a special card to share with you to celebrate Labor Day created with of all things, a Christmas Bundle … Who knew! This little cutie can be used for many occasions … I’ll show you how I did it and you can use it for any occasion you’d like ❤
Wikipedia states: “Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September in any given year to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.”
As I get older, I have begun to fully realize what this special weekend celebration means… the celebration of those whose contributions have built America and those who maintain the way we live our lives today. Amazing … isn’t it?
It’s those people who serve us in some way, whether it seems large or small … we all play a part in it somehow. I am most happy when I feel I am a service to others, it is that interaction with people that makes my heart happy. So as I see it, I have the best job in the world … a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – your creative coach!! I get to share my passion of stamping with you. So lets start …
Today’s card was created with 3 key elements … The Christmas Trimmings Dies from the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle, the Ombre Specialty Paper in the Annual Catalog and the “In Your Words” stamp set – a Host set shown in the Sale-a-bration Catalog!
I just love the great sentiments in this stamp set … so versatile and fun! And the fonts are “happy” and easy to read.
I’m using the Night of Navy Ombre Specialty paper for my background and my focal point which is the star. The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy and then the White piece was embossed with the Painted Texture embossing folder … adds a fun texture to our background.
The star was cut from the darkest section of my Ombre Specialty paper and mounted onto the front using dimensionals to add dimension to the card. I couldn’t resist adding the Wonderful Gems as they have flecks of sparkle in them and look coordinate so nicely with our Real Red card base. You can find those in the Mini Catalog … You can find all the ingredients to this card listed below for your convenience and shopping ease.
Hope you enjoyed today’s simple layout with some sparkle to celebrate our Labor Day!! I thank you for taking time out of your holiday to visit my blog.
Have a beautiful day ~
