Happy Thanksgiving!......{w/Trendy Twine}

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
I hope you all have a GREAT day with family and friend and eat WAY too fun yummy turkey...LOL
Every year my husband and I do the cooking and I just LOVE the way the house smells!
Good times, lots of laughs and yummy food....who could ask for more?

Now onto my card....a few of the Trendy Twine DT decided to do another group post sharing Thanksgiving projects~ so make sure you stop by the Trendy Twine blog to see the other projects.
Here is my simple but pretty adorable Thanksgiving card.....
I used a card base file from Lori Whitlock and added designer paper from The Paper Loft.
I did tie a simple bow of Orange Truffle Trendy Twine around the bottom of the card top and then knotted the ends.
For the image, I used a stamp from Inkadinkado that I have had in my stash forever! It has never been inked up and I am so glad I used cute is it...right?
I did scan the image into my computer and then imported the scanned image to the Silhouette Studio. Once there, I did a trace of the image and then made an offset of the image at 0.075. you have a perfectly shaped cut of the stamped image . I took it one step further and made another offset so I could add a colored mat to the back of the stamped image.
Once I cut the image out, I stamped it and then colored it using my copic markers and as well as adding some gold stickles to his hat and shoe buckles.
Here is another pic so you can see the dimension of the image as well as see the fun wave shape of the card base.  To finish my card I stamped my sentiment using Joy's Life Stamps~It's All Fall Puns.

Supplies Used:
The Paper Loft~Funkysaurus
Kraft, Bazzill Brown
Joy's Life Stamps~It's All Fall Puns
Inkadinkado~ Halloween Mini Assortment
Lori Whitlock~ Wave card base
Trendy Twine~ Orange Truffle
copic markers

  2. Jessica,
    TaaDaa! haven't heard that in a while but it works. Speaking of which you have done a fair amount of it putting this card together. I see so many perfect cuts and now I realize that the Silhouette is very useful. The knots in the end of the Bakers Twine.....a very nice touch. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation with us this week. Hope to see another card really soon ( up to five).
