#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.

those feelings sparked some positive ideas and inspiration for today's card. the wheel landed on 'one layer' and i have a new stamp set that i've been itching to get out of the packaging. [side note on new products - there are going to be a plethora of new ideas and products because i went *slightly* overboard supporting small crafty businesses this weekend!]

the spin on the inspiration wheel today landed on monochromatic and i was inspired by a newer stamp set from mft. it was definitely out of my comfort zone, but i think that i like the way it turned out! i decided to use shades of greys and black with a splash of white to land on both ends of the color spectrum.

the card for today - it's definitely one that'll be a day maker for whoever is on the receiving end of it! the inspiration wheel landed on 3D element for the second time in a couple days and i thought it would be great to use the fun foam again!

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.
