Give Thanks

Cricut, Create-A-Critter 2, Leaves Embossing Folder, Tim Holtz,

I have made my first Thanksgiving card of the year! Woo Hoo!  Thanks to Die Cuttin' Divas and An Inky Situation, I was able to use the CUTE little Indian bear from Create-A-Critter 2 (cut at 3 1/2").  They both have challenges this week to use a Teddy Bear.  How fun!  Anyway, I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday this week and came up with a festive card.  I used patterned paper from Doodlebugs "Happy Harvest" that I got from The Royal Castle Shoppe on Facebook (Theresa the Scrapbooking Queen), and embossed my burgundy mat with The Paper Studio's "Leaves" embossing folder (Hobby Lobby).  I used a Recollection's small leaf punch (Michael's) for the inside of my card and inked everything up with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  My sentiment comes from a Studio 112 (JoAnn's) $1 stamp set and I used some Zig Zag scissors from The Paper Studio to cut around the edges.  I also used those scissors on the inside mat.  I used foam tape on the 3x3 leaf mat on the front as well as the bear and sentiment to add some dimension.  I'm happy with how it turned out, and I have a video for you to watch how it all came together.
