Guess Hoo Loves You card

I made this card using the Hoot N Holler Lite Cartridge.  The inside says ME!  I made this card for my husband after he bought me several of the Lite Cartridges when they were released Walmart.   

Swinging by.....

I love this card!  I made this card using the cricut Imagine and love how it turned out!  I used the Create a Critter Cartridge and Nursery Tales Imagine Cartridge.  or the font, I believe I used Alphalicious cartridge.

The card measure 6X6.  I used white cardstock for the card base.  The background, I used the Nursery Tails cartridge for and printed out the background 6X6.   The one tree pops out which I used glue dots to do that, the tree came from the nursery tails cartridge.  And the monkey came from the Create a Critter Cartridge.

This is the first card I made using the Cricut Imagine!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!  Here is a cute turkey card for Thanksgiving.  I used all Stampin' Up materials for this card.

Materials Used:

Whisper White Cardstock
Pumpkin Pie Cardstock
Real Red Cardstock
Daffodil Delight Cardstock

Chocolate Chip CardStock
Snail adhesive
1" circle punch
1 3/4" Circle Punch
Two Step Bird Punch
1 3/4 X 7/8 oval punch
Grateful Grateful Greetings Stamp Set
Early Espresso Ink

I used Early Expresso Card stock for my card base.  I take a sheet of 8 1/2" X 11" paper and cut in in half.  I fold one of the halves to use as my card.  I then layered real red, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper white card stock on the base of the card.   Heres how I made the turkey.  Punch one 1 3/4" circle and 1 1" circle using Chocolate Chip Cardstock.   Cut as many feather as you want using the oval punch.  I did 4 early espresso, and 3 Daffodil Delight, Real Red, and Pumpkin Pie.  Using the bird punch, punch the turkeys gobblet in real red cardstock.  I cut the feet and nose out with scissors and for the eyes, I used a large hole punch.  Using your snail adhesive, put your turkey together.    The put the turkey on the whisper white cardstock using your snail adhesive.  Then stamp Grateful Greetings in Early Espresso ink.  Then put the layers of your card together!   You are done!
