Thanksgiving Card - Wild Card, Home Accents, Stretch Your Imagination and Easter Cricut Cartridges

This Thanksgiving card was made with my Cricut Expression.  I used a 10"x7" brown colored paper folded to 5"x7".  Next I cut a lighter brown paper to 4 3/4"x6 3/4". Then a Green designed paper was cut at 4 1/2"x6 1/2".  Using the Easter 2010 Cricut cartridge, I cut the grass at 1 1/2"x6 1/2".  Using my Wild Card Cricut cartridge and mini gel pens I had my Cricut write the letters Happy Thanksgiving in a dark green color. Then I used my Home Accents cartridge and cut the oval circle around Happy Thanksgiving. I used my Copic Y19 marker to color in the Happy Thanksgiving. I also cut the oval a second time to create the background accent in brown paper. I accented with a brown ribbon.  The turkey was cut at 3 1/2" from Stretch your Imagination on page 49.  Pop-ups are used behind the turkey and behind the Happy Thanksgiving.  I used Xmas Red Stickles for the eye.  Hope you enjoy this nice little Thanksgiving card.

Wedding Card - Wild Card Cricut Cartridge

Cardcrazy09 demonstrates how to make this card in a video on YouTube under Wild Card Wedding. This card is in the Cricut Wild Card cartridge instructions on page 63. The card and envelope are 5 1/4". A liner for the envelope was also made. The flowers are found in the liner option and are cut at 5 1/4" also. I used the Plum Blossoms folder in my Cuttlebug on the cake and added Stickles to the center of the flowers. A white bow is glued to the top of the cake.

The inside of the card lettering is made using the Cursive 101 Cricut cartridge. I cut the letters twice and offset them to give a shadow effect. 

The Bride and groom were cut using the icon feature on page 63 of the Wild Card.  I used Stickles for the brides dress.
