Thanksgiving Card

The theme or challenge this week at Cricut Cardz Challenge was to make a Thanksgiving card using the card feature on any of your Cricut cartridges.    So this card was made using the card feature on Stretch Your Imagine cartridge.
This card is about a 5 1/2 inch square, using the bare tree cut on SYI.  That leaves kind of an open window in the card so it is lined with vellum paper.  In Design Studio I set up another tree cut to fit exactly on top of the cut out of the card.  I cut it twice and pop dotted it on top.   The "Happy Thanksgiving" is cut from Lyrical Letters and I colored the pine cone with Perfect Pearls.  The leaves are kind of interesting.
For the leaves I glued a piece of aluminum foil onto a piece of plain white card stock.  Then I colored the foil paper using my alcohol inks with Fall colors.  After that was done I cut out the leaves using my Cuttlebug and Spellbinder leaf dies.  I stamped with Versamark all over the background of the card with a leaf stamp just to add some depth.  Overall I think is came out nice, thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think of this card.
