Double Twisted Easel Thanksgiving Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Brrr! It is cold in my area this morning! I am not ready for cold weather but maybe I will have more time to play with my Cricut. With Thankgiving Day almost here, I decided to make one more card. This is my play with the Double Twisted Easel card style. If you have not tried one of these cards, you can find the tutorial at Split Coast Stampers. The card starts with a 8" square of Kraft cardstock.
When folded the card will easily fit in a business sized envelope. I think it will be a pretty display for Thanksgiving. Patterned papers are K&Company. Solid papers are from scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Thanksgiving Table Decor- Cornucopia/mat is cut 3.50" wide. I cut a duplicate mat for the pilgrim hat. Mats are pop-dotted on card.
Autumn Celebrations - Pilgrim Hat is cut 2.75" wide.
Classroom Oct-Nov - Happy Thanksgiving is cut 4.25" wide. It is placed on hand cut mats and pop-dotted on the card. Gelly roll pen used on the turkey for a little detail.

Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots is used on the hat and Houndstooth is used on the cornucopia. A few extra leaves are randomly placed on the base of card.
