Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

It's a few days early, but Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and enjoys their time with their family and friends!

I had a lot of fun making this card.  I used my Circut cart "Create a Critter" to cut out this adorable turkey!

I used my Creative Inspiration Paints to add some shimmer to him!  I just love these paints!  The come in 55 beautiful colors!  Check them out here.

I used my Cuttlebug folder "Tiny Bubbles" to emboss his back feathers.  I then painted the bubbles with CI Paint "Mango".  After the paint dried, which wasn't long at all, I sanded the paper to bring on its white core.
I really like how it turned out! 

 These little pieces of ribbon were originally white. I first used VersaMagic Pumpkin Spice Chalk Ink to cover the ribbon and then used CI Paint "Mango" on the top. I cut the ribbon into little pieces to add some embelishments to the card.

I think it adds a neat addition to the card.
Lastly to finish off the card I stamped a swirl in the top right corner with the same VersaMagic ink. I then used a tooth pick to cover the little dots with "Mango"and used "Burnt Clay" to cover two of the swirls. The added touch of shimmer is perfect!


Have a great day!
