Hi, this is Katie from Crafting with Katie, and I am so excited that Joy and Melanie asked me to return as a guest designer this week! For today's project, I made a Thanksgiving wall hanging. It is made with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of thick chipboard. I originally bought this chipboard to use with my Cricut, but it is way too thick. However, it's just perfect to build upon for a wall hanging!
I began by adhering an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of dark orange cardstock to the chipboard. On top of that, I added my patterned paper, cut at 8" x 11". I made this piece of paper by taking a pretty piece of blue patterned paper and using my Imagine to print on it some word art from the Cricut Word Collage cartridge. To see how I was able to center the word art and use RGB codes to print in a customized color, watch the video below.
My tree is cut at 10" from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. Since I didn't need the entire tree and didn't want to waste paper, I slid part of the tree off of my screen on my Gypsy and just cut the part that I wanted.
These cute leaves are from the Art Philosophy cartridge, cut at 1". I inked around their edges with some distress ink.
Finally, I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes and attach some eyelets. A piece of ribbon to coordinate with my cardstock finished it off!
