December Daily® 2020 | Story Sixteen

For story sixteen in my 2020 December Daily® album I'm including our Christmas card and also have everyone tell me either their favorite thing from 2020 or at least one good thing. 

Let's dive in and take a look how this came together: 

Now let's take a closer look via images:

Today's page is primarily working off the backside of Day 15, utilizing the triangle shapes, and then includes our Christmas card. As you'll see in today's video I went through a few different ideas before deciding on this (including one story idea that I've already included in this album for 2020 and I was just totally not remembering). 

The back of our Christmas card includes word art that I'll be sharing here on the blog as a free download after Christmas. 

For today's story I ended up going around the house and asking each person to either tell me their favorite thing about 2020 or at least one good thing. This year has been full of all kinds of disappointments so it was interesting to watch and listen to each kid + Aaron think a bit to identify something good. I'm so glad I ended up doing this. 

Technically each of the triangles is about 2 inches wide x 3 inches tall. I cut white cardstock to those sizes (one for each of us + then two out of felt) and used our Otter Rock ink and the uppercase stamp set to add an initial to each triangle. 

Initially I didn't plan to add a second layer but as you'll see in the video I ended up printing each of the little stories on printable ink jet vellum and then adhering each one using folded over washi tape. I also added the circle chipboard numbers from the Chipboard Bundle

Along the top of the felt pieces I added Tim Holtz Label Tape. On the top triangle I added "us" using the chipboard alpha and a metal heart from the Main Kit and on the bottom triangle I added a wood veneer star from the Star Mini Kit along with a chipboard word and a perforated phrase (both from the Main Kit). 

I really love how this one turned out!

    Hi Ali, any chance to have the goodbye 2020 word art right now. I only have access to a laser printer at work and I will be in vacation from Déc 22nd and I would like to foil it . I’ll ask by chance. Thanks.

    This was so good!

    My December Daily 2020 | Story 16 is about a nighttime snow fall and Tom’s little boy reaction to the fat, fluffy flakes.
