I am so excited to share this Thanksgiving card with you that i designed for the SweetSassyDiva blog!! I absolutely love this time of year. You guys will see a ton of fun themed projects throughout the next two months so stay tuned!
The card is sized at 5.5"H x 4.5"T, I cut out the bottom piece of the designed paper at 5.25"H x 4.25"H and the other pieces of the designed paper i kind of just eye balled what looked good to me. I distressed the edges of the design paper with my Tim Holtz edger and then inked over it with Walnut Stain distress ink. I next cut out all of the pieces with my Cricut and Sizzix Big Shot. For the leaves, the scallop layer and the sentiment i used the Wild Card Cricut cartridge (cut out at 6"T) and for the bird cut out i used the Tim Holtz bird cage die (the bird was cut out on medium weight chipboard). Next, I embossed the leaves, the bird and the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing powder and then sprayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist. This gave it an amazing duo color tone. I then finished it off with some Prima Lace and some I-Rock bling.
Hope you like it!!
