Customer Spotlight - Terry Reid

Just in time for Thanksgiving!  My good friend and StampinHeaven Hostess Club member created this beautiful Thanksgiving card.   She used the Centers Accent pattern the Jeanette's How To book - Originals.   I love these how to books for cards.   If I find a card I really like but don't want to make the size shown in the book, they are so easy to adapt to other sizes, which is what Terry did here.

For this card, Terry used Cocoa, Goldrush, Olive and Colonial White Cardstock.  The card shown in the Originals book used a pattern B&T for the piece at the bottom.  Terry created her own B&T by using random stamping with Goldrush ink on the Goldrush piece of cardstock.    She used dry embossing on the cocoa piece at the top.   Terry exposed her embossing by sanding the cardstock to bring out the white core.
The buttons adorning the card were from Close To My Heart's Autumn Button collection (now retired).  They are adorable on this card! Gee.... wish I had thought to order some of those before they retired!   Make a note - see something you like on the retiring list?? Be sure to order it before December 31!.   To see the products that are retiring at December 31, click on the link to the left under  "Shop With Me".

Thank you Terry for sharing your card!   Be sure to leave her a 'love it' comment!
