Pilgrim Hat Shaped Card

Hi, everyone! Welcome to Wednesday and to my blog. Do you know what's great about Wednesdays? For today it's this:
  1. It's that day of the week when we always have Chinese Take-Out for lunch
  2. Tom is working at home today in his office
  3. The weather is calming with a steady rain
  4. Bonnie is watching a Christmas movie on Netflix
  5. I'm playing in my craftroom!
If you just want to see the craft I made today, please feel free to skip this next sentence or two. If you're still reading, then don't blame me if you bust out laughing with this next part. Your mission whenever you have Chinese take-out and read the fortune cookie, always add "in bed" after whatever the fortune says. I'm telling you - it's hilarious! If that offends you, moving on........

Today's card was again simple and yet satisfying. I think it looks pretty good and the only thing I added or changed about the cut file was I added Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink to the edges of the cuts, moved the ban and buckle down a little from the finished sample they showed, and added an internal offset for stamping and writing a message on the inside using my Silhouette Cameo software.

  • Silhouette Software to create an internal offset for stamping and writing a message
  • Stampin' Up "Thankful Forest Friends" for sentiment
  • Stampin' Up Crushed Curry & Old Olive inks.
    • I inked the entire sentiment in Crushed Curry
    • Then I rocked the sentiment around so only the edges touched the Old Olive ink pad
  • Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink for edges of sentiment mat

Don't forget! This weekend I am in a THINK CHRISTMAS blog hop! Santa will be giving away a Silhouette Cameo if we have 200 followers and comments left. Woo-Hoo! Plus some of the other blogs (there are just 7 stops including me) are offering additional blog candy just for hopping along with us, being a follower, and leaving a comment. Check out more details on the Facebook Event Page. Be sure to click on GOING and INVITE all your friends so Santa can give away that Cameo to one lucky person! 


Thanks for stopping by today.  See you tomorrow!!

A Pilgrim hat is the perfect thank you base for a card. Decorated with the fall leaves is creative too.
Thanks for playing with the Mod Squad this week.
