That’s the Ticket

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. I hope you enjoy a wonderful day of thankfulness, friends and family and food. Eat a piece of pie for me, OK?

Today’s card is for this week’s Ways to Use it Challenge…Tickets. I’m totally taken with the ticket trend. I actually have quite the collection from kraft ticket embellishments to chipboard, from stamps to vintage tickets. I thought it would be fun to create a ticket-themed Christmas card for a different spin on things. I’ve used kraft mini tickets from Maya Road and a stamped ticket for the sentiment using the Tim Holtz ticket themed Odds and Ends stamp set. If you have some time to play along…we’d love to have you join us here.

Ticket to Christmas Card

For this card I tried out a new ink pad, Crimson Archival Ink by Ranger. It’s a stunning red color and I’m quickly becoming addicted to all the Archival Inks. They are permanent when heat set and give a beautiful deep impression every time.
