November 2, 2011 - Post #3

Wow!  I've been saving up these pictures for a while, so I have several posts to get them all published toady!

Here's the first Thanksgiving card I've made for this year.  Isn't he just the cutest little turkey??



I used kraft cardstock for the card base.  The colored cardstock is just some I had in my stash ~ no idea what company it's from.  I created the turkey, pumpkins, and leaves using the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge.  The tail is cut from an All Seasons pad I got at Hobby Lobby.  I outlined and added details to some of the leaves and parts of the turkey with a brown metallic jelly roll pen.  I alo added a metal corner and brad to the card front ~ got those from Hobby Lobby, too.  The ribbon is just a seam binding cut from my local scrapbooking store.  I used my MS scoreboard to create the border on the inside panel.  The tag came from my stash, and the front sentiment is handwritten.  The inside sentiment was stamped with a stamp from the $1 bin at Pat Catan's.  I sponged the edges of everything with Chestnut Roan chalk ink.

I'm working on another Thanksgiving card, so I'll be back later with that one!
