Getting Cricky DT Post

Hi all!

If you've stopped by from Getting Cricky, welcome. If you're here just because, welcome too. Either way, I'm glad you're here! Happy Thanksgiving Eve to all of those in the U.S. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.

This is a really quick to put together card. As I posted in my DT post, I worked all day, picked my son up from college (5 hour drive) and then made the card. Really quick! The top 2 layers were cut 1/8" smaller than the previous layer to make small borders. The squares are 1 1/2" on each side and the corners were cut with a corner chomper. The paper is from a 6" x 6" stack from My Mind's Eye that I picked up at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago for $2.00. I love the scale on packs that size, and the colors were great for a Thanksgiving themed card. The kraft paper is from a Recollections pack of different shades of brown. The leaves were punched using a Martha Stewart punch. The border punch is from EK Success. Almost all of the pieces were inked using Vintage Photo distress ink. The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs "Fall-O-Ween" set, which is unfortunately sold out. There are many great sets still available, so head on over and check them out before they are all gone. You can't beat 60% off!
