I made another Thanksgiving card tonight using Cricut’s Wild Card cartridge. On page 43, there is a nice card base called. Other images for this card include the “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment and leaf icons. I really like the oval cut-out and the coordinating scalloped frame. I cut all of the corresponding cuts at 7 inches, including the envelope. The envelope is embellished with a leaf icon cut at 7 inches in green card stock. I used a paper trimmer to cut off the excess where the leaf folds over to the addressed side. Since I will be mailing this card, trimming the leaf portion was necessary. The two charms hanging from the jewelry cord are cut from Cricut’s Designer Calendar cartridge at 1 1/2 inches (pages 36 & 37 for the images, and 47 for the round and square bases). The patterned card stock is from Paper Studio’s Natural Botanical stack and the card base is from Wal-Mart’s 8 1/2 x 11 earth tones card stock found in their office supply section. I added two small adhesive pearls on the scalloped frame to finish off the card.
I have one more Thanksgiving card that I need to make and it doesn’t require mailing. It is to be given to my husband who is so loving and supportive of my hobby. I have a design in mind and hopefully I can get it completed tomorrow.
