Give Thanks

I used Create a Critter for this cute turkey cut.
I find myself using this cart all the time. For his feathers I embossed using Divine Swirls/Cuttlebug. The hat and the circle background is using Swiss Dots/Cuttlebug.
 I edged all with brown ink and used tiny black brads for the eyes.

The leaves were the most fun part of making the card.
I crinkled up brown paper, soaked it in water, once dry I ironed it flat. I stained it using Tim Holtz inks, cranberry, butterscotch, oregeno and rust colors. I cut the paper into strips, then used ProvoCrafts fall leaf die cuts.
Now the funny part is I used the brown wrapping paper I found from my package of carts I ordered from Cricut.  It was such a nice thin piece of paper I thought this could make some nice leaves...and this is what came of that. So fun!! and the lowest cost paper I could find....well not included the carts I bought...LOL

The sign I used another die cut from ProvoCraft, its from the alphabet collection Curls and Swirls. I stamped the edge of my card and the outsides of the sign with a leaf swirl stamp. The Give Thanks stamp is from CTMH. I used Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves stamp pad.

I hope you enjoyed visiting.
Thank you!
Happy Craftin my friends.
