The challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 this week is to create a card using the Give Thanks from the Thanksgiving cartridge. I just got my cartridge this week so I wanted to play along. The other project I wanted to do was an octagonal easel card. I decided to combine the two.
I started by creating a cut file in Cricut Design Studio. I know, I know. I have a Gypsy but I let it intimidate me (one of these days I'm going to surprise all of you and say, "This is something I created with my Gypsy"). Anyway, I'm digressing again. Heehee. I used George and Basic Shapes for all my card shapes except the "Give Thanks" which is, of course, from Thanksgiving. My finished card is 5 1/2" tall.
The Cornucopia and the inside sentiment are digistamps from Doodle Pantry. I used Promarkers to color them. The paper is from a stack of DCWV paper Donna and I shared and she has the name of it. I don't think you can see it but the green paper is flocked. I cut the leaves from another sheet of the same stack.
I like my Promarkers more and more. I was really pulling for my Donna to win the complete set of Promarkers Enfys from Going Buggy was giving away. My Donna didn't win but Nana Donna did. Isn't that funny? We are so happy for you, Nana Donna. You are so creative. My Donna said, "Mom, I guess we need to be more specific next time which Donna we want to win." LOL
