Episode 97: Simple Thanksgiving Card

Hi Crafters.  I had made this large turkey cut for a table decoration but decided not to use it but I didn't want to waste it so I used it on a tall card.  A tall card is 8" x 9" and scored at 4".  This type of card fits in a business envelope.

To make my turkey I used the Cricut Craft Room (CCR).  I can't tell you how much I LOVE this program.  Yes, it has it's kinks but it is so useful.  Especially w/ the Imagine.  All I did was add my layers for the turkey to my mat in CCR, flood filled each layer w/ a color.  Then I layered the images to where it is only one image and then color and cut.  Hopefully that makes sense.  :)

Also for some great news.  I am now at 900 followers!  I also had my 2 year blog-aversary in the last couple of weeks so I want to celebrate those two great things.  Look out for my blog later this week.  I'll have some blog candy giveaway.

Thanks for Watching!

Your turkey card is adorable. What a neat way to not waste such a great piece of art. You always come up with the neatest things and I love how you take and make pieces really large and then only use a part of it. You are always thinking outside of the box. Which is just another reason I love your blog. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE this! I love how you didn't use the entire cut of the turkey. Very creative; I keep seeing this turkey on blogs as we approach Thanksgiving, but yours is a new way of using it!
