Bonus Saturday Post! Happy Turkey Day Cards

November 23, 2013 by  
Filed under Core Blog, May Arts Ribbon, Tombow Adhesive

We have had so many great design ideas from our team this Thanksgiving that we have a bonus post for you this Saturday! Here’s a little bit about these projects from Tracy Gruber!

There is nothing like a good clean and simple card. First, stamp the leaves onto 3 different colors from the Core’dinations Darks Collection pack. Next, fussy cut them out, emboss them, sand them with the Sand It Gadget, and then attach them to the Core’dinations 110 lb. white card base. Use a Tombow 3D Foam Tabs to attach the yellow leaf. Finally, stamp the sentiment and attach a May Arts Natural twine bow.

Supplies:
-Coredinations Essentials – Darks
-Core’dinations 110 lb. White Card stock
-Dust Buddy
-Sand It Gadget
-The Alley Way Stamps “It’s Fall About You”
-Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
-Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
-May Arts Natural Twine
-Tombow 3D Foam Tabs

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love polka dots! I wanted to create a fall card with lots of polka dots and navy blue. First, punch some 1″ and 1 1/2″ circles from the Core’dinations Darks Collection pack using a Fiskars punch. Next, emboss, sand, and attach them to a white card front. The turkey is stamped on some Core’dinations 110 lb. white card stock (this is perfect for coloring with Copics!) and colored in with Copics. Finally, attach the turkey and the sentiment with Tombow 3D Foam Tabs.

Supplies:
-Core’dinations Darks Collection pack
-Core’dinations Neutrals Collection pack
-Core’dinations 110 lb. white card stock
-Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder
-Sand It Gadget
-Dust Buddy
-Tombow 3D Foam Tabs
-The Alley Way Stamps “It’s Fall About You”
-Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
-Copic Markers: R05, YR68, E25, Y15, B37
-Simon Says Stamp Speech Bubble dies
-Fiskars 1″ and 1 1/2″ circle punches

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Don’t you think that sanding on the turkey just adds so much texture and dimension? SO CUTE!

Do you have a turkey for your traditional Thanksgiving meal? We have both turkey and ham! Since I didn’t have a ham image on my Cricut, I had to settle with the turkey cut from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. First, cut it at 2 3/4″ and emboss the light brown pieces with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Then, sand them and the dark brown piece, since turkeys are not one perfect shade of brown ;) The “greenery” is Parsley Core’dinations card stock and the light blue “plate” is from the Core’dinations Essentials Pastels Pack. Next, use the gray card stock from the Core’dinations Essentials Neutrals pack and the orange piece from the Core’dinations Essentials Darks Pack. Finish the card by adding a May Arts Natural twine bow.
