My Sheri Crafts Ch# 73 - Be Thankful
Happy Saturday and welcome to Glenda's Cards! It is time for a fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Our challenge is to create a card/project with a Thanksgiving or Thank You theme. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, my card is to celebrate the holiday. I have truly been blessed in my life and very thankful for God's love, forgiveness and salvation, Family, and Friends.
This card is a Twisted Easel and if you are unfamiliar with this card style, I am including a link to Mary's tutorial at Cardz TV. Thanks Mary for sharing your great video! This card style is not hard to make and I encourage you to try it!
The 4 1/4 X 9 3/4 card base is cut from the Paper Studio Earthtone Cardstock Pack. The front of the card is layered with a patterned paper from K&Company Tim Coffey Halloween and Fall pack.
Cricut Lite Celebrate with Flourish - Cornucopia is cut 2 1/4". To add more color, I cut the Layer image in green and purple plus the brown. This cartridge has cute images, but only has one layer plus the layer on shift feature, so you do not get many colors.
Giving Thanks is cut 2 1/4".
Heritage - Corner accent #9 page 62. Oops, I do not see the recorded size!
Stretch Your Imagination- Brown leaf is an extra cut from a previous project.
Birds and Swirls - Green leaf
Swiss dots - Grapes
Divine Swirls- Pumpkin
Houndstooth - Brown cornucopia
I have seen so many pretty and unique rosettes on projects lately that I just had to give the rosettes a try. The rosette in the corner is 1" x 12" and is scored at each 1/4 mark using the Martha Stewart scoreboard. After the valley/mountain folding, I glued it to a cardstock circle. I added a yellow leaf button with a raffia bow in the center of the rosette.
Visit My Sheri Crafts to see all the pretty inspirational projects by the design team. We look forward to seeing your projects. Remember you must use the Thanksgiving or Thank you theme and link your project by midnight central time Nov. 26. One lucky winner will be the next guest designer at My Sheri Crafts!
