Happy Thanksgiving with an MFP Christmas card

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the U.S. and to my international friends Happy Thursday, the weekend is almost here!  On this day of Thanksgiving I wish to say THANK YOU to all of you who stop by and take a peek at what I am up to!  I appreciate every one of your kind comments!!  Thanks so much for following along with me this year!

 My Christmas card stash is woefully short of my quota so I went with a Christmas card to share with you even though today is  Thanksgiving Day!  I used Shirley's gorgeous photos to inspire  my Christmas door scene. I settled on the first photo because this card is going to go to my neighbor and they have a bright green front door!

For my porch decorations I used MFP's "Columns and Topiaries". I added dimension by popping up the Topiaries with foam pads then stamping the shrubbery a second time, fussy cutting and layering with foam pads.
The ribbon was stamped and fussy cut from the horn image in the  "You're an Angel" set. 

For a little surprise I stamped inside the door with the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from
 "You're an Angel".  From this angle you can see the dimension added by layering the shrubbery.

 I hope you will check out the Inspiration challenge at MFP  to see the beauties my teammates have created  from the photo inspiration along with the  details so you can play along!



  1. Wow! I love this! Makes me want to go back and do this challenge again Angie. Such a great snow effect on the foliage and the door looks so great as does the bg bricks. Very special card! Happy Thanksgiving my friend. Hugz

  2. Angie,
    How beautiful and I love that your door opens to a wonderful sentiment. The scene you created with the Christmas topiaries is lovely. I don't know what you used for snow - but it looks absolutely real. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Hugs, K.
