This card began as a test of the Hero Arts black watercolor paper. I thought I would make a background for a Halloween card. Using Gansai Tambi Pearl Colors (from HM Ben Franklin Crafts), I swirled on some blue and silver watercolors. Maybe I added a touch of green and yellow, too. I let the paper dry and was pleasantly surprised with the sparkling result. Somehow the elegance of the colors did not match the stamped cartoon Halloween character I was planing to use. So the Halloween card became an Autumn card. I pulled out one of my favorite Autumn dies, the Impression Obsession tree and started searching for the perfect paper to die cut. I had a frosty silver card stock in my stash which seemed perfect but now the card looked more like a Winter card....LOL! Once again I changed the direction of this card. It still looks a bit spooky but with the 'GRATITUDE' word I hope that it conveys the feeling that I have even during this pandemic. (My very old gratitude stamp was applied with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Nuvo classic silver powder.) I am grateful for all I have and can do everyday even though it may be only clearing off the messy surface of my craft table....at least I have a space to clear...hahaha!

These copper heat embossed words are the only thing that coordinates with the card on my previous post. As I said in that post, I am planning to fill the box with a s'more kit but I may include home-baked s'more brownies instead. Well, that's it for today. Hope this post gave you ideas for what you can do with an empty cookie box. Be crafty!
