Happy Thanksgiving Card for the CCC

Hi you all, hope you had a fantastic weekend. Today for the Creative Cutting Challenge the theme is Thanksgiving. I decided to get a start on my cardmaking for the holidays ahead.
 I used the Thanksgiving Set 1:
Thanksgiving Set One - Click Image to Close
For my card, I cut the silhouette of the pilgrims and the title from my cameo.I love how beautifully the files cut even when I size the files down. This set would also be fun for a thanksgiving layout or even some place-cards for guests at the Thanksgiving dinner. I added Happy from the Alphas from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane sticker sheet. The flowers were punched with Stampin Up Petite Petals Punch and added some gold pearls for the centers. The papers for the card all came from last month's Counterfeit Kit.
I brought in more of the punched petals for a border on the inside of the card and used sequins fr the centers so the card would close better. Now the inside is ready for a note to the recipient of the card. Have you started your Holiday card making yet? Christmas is right around the corner, not even close to being ready for that one, but getting a bit closer to being ready for Thanksgiving....
 Off you go and give a try to the challenge we hope you all play along with us:
Rules are simple the project must be new works and  Each project must contain at least one SVG (SCUT, MTC or similar) file die cut and that file must be clearly apparent or you must state what piece of the project is the SVG (or similar electronic) file.  A file name or creator link would be helpful to those viewing your project. NOTE:  A project using only a Cricut Cartridge file is not eligible.  SUBMISSIONS WITHOUT ANY MENTION OF AN ELECTRONIC CUTTING FILE WILL BE DELETED.  Blog owner reserves the right to delete any submission deemed ineligible without notice to entrant.

  1. Love your start to the Thanksgiving season. Love the contrasting patterns in your cuts and background.

  2. I love this card Tina! The pilgrims are fabulous. I am not ready to even discuss Christmas yet, lol, but I know it is right around the corner literally. So I know I need to get on the ball with things for Christmas. I don't think I will ever be ready or on the ball though. It seems to sneak up on me more and more with each passing year! Hugs, Brenda

  3. I'm not ready for Christmas cards yet... But I have been thinking about it! Smart if you to get a head start.
