CardzTV Cricut Cardz Ch#95: "We're So Thankful"

Good morning! Welcome to my blog where I love to post things I'm crafting. I really appreciate you stopping by today. My post today is all about CARDZTV CRICUT CARD CH# 95, "We're So Thankful". I love being on Mary's CardzTV Design Team! She comes up with the best ideas for challenges & makes the best cards!

For Ch#95, Mary has asked us to make a Cricut Card using the Card Feature on any Cricut cartridge we'd like and using any colors we'd like.  We hope you'll stop by CardzTV and play along in this challenge with us!

Project #302 of this year
For My card, I used the Card Feature on the SWEETHEARTS Cricut Cartridge on page 81.

I cut both the card envelope and the card at 5 1/2" using K&Co papers from their Primary Basic stack.  You can find both of these cuts on the keypad overlay Row 5, Column 10.

The mats for the outside of the envelope were cut @ 3 3/4" x 4 5/8" for the darker green mat. The light green mat was cut @ 3 1/2" x 4 1/4".

For the pumpkin on the inside card and on the outside of the envelope, I used the pumpkin from the FRESHLY PICKED cartridge. Mary used this same pumpkin on a project in October, and I liked the simplicity of just the 2 cuts for it. The pumpkin on the top of the card piece (pull tab) was cut @ 2 1/2". The pumpkin on the outside of the envelope was cut @ 4". This pumpkin can be found on page 68 of the handbook, and on the keypad overlay at Row 5, Column 1.

I inked around the outside envelope, mats, and pumpkin cuts. I used brown chalk to define the pumpkin creases.

Come play with us at CARDZTV! We can't wait to see what you come up with. And make sure you take a look at what all the other Designers created to inspire you for this challenge. This team is so talented!
