Cricut Paper Trimmings Thankful Card

 I saw this festive gourd on the new Cricut Paper Trimmings cartridge (exclusive to the Cricut Circle) and thought it would be perfect for a Thanksgiving card.  I used my most favorite stamp set from My Creative Time called Mixed Holiday Sentiments.  Check out all the goodies on this one:
If you want to purchase the Mixed Holiday sentiment stamp set, head over HERE!
Below are my instructions - I used the DCWV Autumn Stack from Michaels for this card and then kraft, cream and brown cardstock.

Instructions:
  1. Cut kraft cardstock to 4-1/4” x 11” and fold in half to create card base.  Ink piece of 3-3/4” x 5-1/4” cream cardstock and adhere to inside.
  2. Ink piece of green patterned cardstock cut at 3-1/2” x 3” and adhere to front of card.
  3. Ink piece of multi-colored patterned cardstock cut at 3-3/4” x 3-1/4” and adhere to piece of orange cardstock cut at 3-7/8” x 3-3/8”.  Adhere this to front of card, overlapping green section.
  4. Using Cuttlebug and scalloped die from Taylored Expressions, cut out brown and orange pieces.  Glue together offset and adhere to card as shown.
  5. Ink a piece of cream cardstock cut at 2-3/4”x2” and run it through the Cuttlebug using the Divine Swirls folder.  Adhere to piece of 3” x 2-1/4” brown cardstock.
  6. Cut out gourd from Cricut Paper Trimmings cartridge at 2-1/2” for both layers and glue pieces together.  Adhere to cream and brown square.  Using pop dots, adhere to front of card.
  7. Stamp sentiment on piece of cream cardstock.  Back with brown cardstock and add brads.  Adhere to front of card with pop dots.


Don't forget we are giving away the fabulous Artbin Glitter Glue Organizer from Scrapbook Corner!  It is a fabulous way to store your glitter glues and have them all available for on-the-go use at crops. This handy case stores up to 48 bottles of Stickles glitter glue, either facing downward or upward.  The case itself measures 14" x 14.5" x 3.5" and is heavy duty.

Yea for Artbin for making cases for our craft supplies! We are always challenged for organization with ALL of our craft supplies. I love to see products specifically made to store the things that we use. I wish that they would come up with an inexpensive way to store embossing folders and Spellbinders.
