CCC #85 Paper Frame Card

Cricut Cardz Ch# 85 is to make a card for any holiday using any Cricut cartridges and colors you want. FUN!
I chose to make a Thanksgiving card with a Paper Frame.

Tall Card - 9" x 8" scored @ 4" (will fit in #10 Business Size Envelope)
SIMPLY CHARMED Cricut Cartridge 
Turkey page 61 cut @ 2 1/2" with Shadow feature (keypad overlay Row 4, Column 4)
Phrase page 61 cut @ 2" with Shadow feature

Background paper from Recollections "All Girl"
Paper Frame paper from K&C "Greenhouse"
Faux stitching with permanent marker.
Ribbon, Jute & *Button from stash.

To Make A Paper Frame:
Cut a square of double-sided pattern paper @ 4"
With Martha Stewart Scoring Board and Triangle piece, score diagonally on all 4 sides @ 1" and 1 1/2".
Fold sides in then out for 3D paper frame effect.

I hope you'll come play along with us at Cricut Cardz Challenge this week!  Time to get ahead on your Holiday cards - whatever holiday to need to jump start your card collection for.
Smiles! :) Janis
