A Christmas Musical Masculine Thank You

Yesterday, December 20, we had our Church Christmas Program. For the first time since COVID we had musical number at church. I have really missed hearing music, it brings such a wonderful feeling to a meeting. I wanted to express my thanks to those who shared their musical talents yesterday. One was a young man you played “I Heart the Bells on Christmas Day” on the piano. I didn’t want to send him the same card I had sent to the women who performed, so I looked through my patterned paper and found this great plaid.

As with the previous card, I create the sentiment in the Silhouette Cameo and die cut it four times from navy cardstock. I also cut a shadow using pale yellow cardstock. It was the perfect combination.

I didn’t want to add a flower die cut and remembered that I had recently purchased Altenew’s Leaf Mix Dies. They were perfect for a masculine thank you.

The patterned paper was cut using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered to the a side folding cardbase. The sentiment and leaves were adhered to the patterned paper with liquid glue. I really like the way it turned out.

I am a very blessed wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I firmly believe in the quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf which states "The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human heart." Every day I try to create something that lifts the heart for myself and others.
