the other reason i really like this card is because yellow/gold, grey and black create one of my favorite color combos. i think it's timeless and classic and i just love it. this is definitely slightly different than any of the other cards i've made this round of the project, but as i mentioned, i like the way it turned out.

#the100dayproject : handmade card 70/100 : never give up

but in all seriousness, i couldn't do what i do without the help of this guy. during show season he's right there with me, doing all the heavy lifting and talking me up to anyone and everyone. he's great at feedback and at suggesting ideas for things i would never think of and i love when he keeps me company in the craft castle. he encourages me to spend far too much money on new supplies ["because you need them, obviously" is one of his go-to lines] and he's one of the most incredible humans i've ever met. so it's well deserved that he earns employee of the month. love you babe!

okay...onto the card for today! the inspiration wheel landed on heat embossing and sometimes that intimidates me. however, i decided to try a few different things.

as for the card, i started with a light grey panel and stamped a shelf near the upper right side. i decided to use a new stamp set and i love the layering options! the shelf has a base and then an additional stamp over it to create a wood finish. the pot that is sitting on the shelf is one color and then an additional stamp adds the pattern. as for the plant itself, i used several shades of green to give it a little ombre look - darker near the roots and lighter green as it grows!

i went with another holiday themed card and even though i tell myself i'll stop making them, i can't help it. i just love making special holiday cards. i'm a firm believer that you don't need to send everyone on your list a super special card, but maybe focus on those people you know will appreciate it, or those who go out of their way for you throughout the year. these cards can also become decor - just pop them in a frame or even place them on the mantle.
