Happy Turkey Day

Reposted: This card was published in the November, '07 issue of Cards, pg.17.Yes, you read that right! This is a Thanksgiving card in the beginning of January!!!

I'm just happy that I can finally post this card! Normally, I post it, and then if it's picked up for publication, I remove it, but not this one! I was able to stay patient enough to hold off till it was accepted, and so therefore, it's completely new to you now...well, unless you saw it in the magazine, of course! LOL This was published in the November '07 issue of Cards on page 17, and now it's been a long enough time since then, so I can finally show it to you!!!

The ribbon trick, I thought, was kind of cool! I really wanted to use this AC 1 in wide brown polka dot ribbon, but no matter how I put it on there, it took over the card - it was just too big. So, I got out my Sticky Strip, and put it where I wanted the ribbon to be. Then I rolled the ribbon into a tube, and stuck it down. Now it is less "intrusive", and adds dimension!

I made the photo corner with my Marvy Giga Scallop Square punch and paper trimmer with a coordinating "rust-like" AC color paper. I, then, spritzed and sponged the PP with some Soft Sky, to bring it out a bit more from the main image, and I stamped the sentiment on the transparency with my White Stazon.

Tomorrow brings another MFT card, but it card will be a sneak peek from one of the soon to be released sets! Think green! ;) So I'll see you back here then!

  1. let me be the first to say how adorable this is! Nice coloring and layering!

  2. This is such a fun little card. I love the way you put your cards together. You really are very talented.

  3. Being in Florida, I'm sure you are just waiting for September/October so it cools down a bit. But let me tell you that in England, it hasn't even warmed up at all!! I think we've hit 80 degrees once so far, and last night we had to pull out the winter bed coverings because it was soooo cold!!! If only we could meet somewhere in the middle! :-)

  4. Aww, fab card. Love your colouring!

  5. Congratulations on your publication! It's no wonder they picked up this darling card! Love everything about it!

  6. Love it! Course I got to see it in print too but it never gets old!

  7. So cute! I never make Turkey Day cards-but if they came out this cute I would
    Yeah for you waiting till it was published! I pulled a Kirsten and had to pull some down! I actually posted FIRST! LOL! That never happens.
