CTO Challenge #90: Thanksgiving

Hello Everyone,

I hope you have fully recovered from Thanksgiving celebrations and that you have a lovely time with your families and didn't have too much to eat.

This week our theme at Celebrate the Occasion is Thanksgiving and we are challenging you to share a thanksgiving projects but you MUST use three buttons.

The image I used is from our sponsor for this month, Bugaboo Stamps. I used Turkey Give Thanks image.

The idea for this card came from my friend and Stampin' Up enabler, Michelle. She is very creative and I really like this idea and lifted it from her. You can visit her blog HERE and also check out her Stampin' Up Online store HERE.

The card is a twisted card and is quite an interesting shape. I used the base as a portrait shape but if it is used in the landscape format you can use it as a gift card holder. The card started with a 4 1/2 X 11 piece of paper then score the card from one corner to the opposite corner, fold along the score line then fold the card in half.

What was used:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps, Turkey Give Thanks
Copic Markers
Spellbinders Labels 4
Recollections Night and Fall Paper Pad
My Minds Eye Sunshine 6 X 6 Paper Pad
Recollections Cardstock
Ranger/Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink
Recollections Ribbon
Devine Twine
Buttons from my stash

I really love the shape of this card, I will really have to try it out as a gift card holder for another project.  Please stop by CTO and join in with us this week.

Happy Scrapping!
