i also managed to pick up a limited edition stamp set with a recent purchase and i have to admit, it might be the cutest thing i've seen in awhile. [i know i said that yesterday, but this is a new, different set that's adorable in a whole quarantine kinda way.]

#the100dayproject : handmade card 75/100-2 : missing you
the inspiration wheel landed on die-cut element so i pulled out a die-cut that actually arrived this morning! i've had my eye on it for what seems like forever and when it went on sale, i decided i needed to have it! it cuts out up to four different elements that can be used in conjunction with one another, but i only used two on today's card. i also used a handful of other newer products and therefore today's handmade card has a bunch of photos.

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.

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.
