Gate fold Thanksgiving Cards

Well first off, a big "ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!" Can ya tell I was excited about the game? It was a nail biter today!!! But we came out on top, so that's good. Anyways, after the game I decided to finish up my Thanksgiving cards so that I can get them in the mail in a few days. I did them all as gate fold cards. This first one I used the Cuttlebug Houndstooth EB folder and then distressed it with TH (Tim Holtz) Distress Ink in Peeled Paint. The turkey is a stamp from the $1 bin at M's....can't beat that. Then I added some orange stickles to him as well. So here is this one:

Next, I used the CB Distressed Stripes folder on this one. Again, more distressing with the TH Distress Ink in Peeled Paint. The pumpkin was cut from the Happily Ever After cartridge. Then addes some stickles:

This third card, I used the Pumpkin Harvest CB EB folder. I then sanded it down to reveal the image. I added some eyelets and some festive ribbon to tie it closed:

And last, I used some foam stickers for the turkey and the 'gobble' on this one. I used a combo of the CB EB folders. I distressed the left side with Orange Marmalade TH Distress Ink. I also added eyelets and decided to tie this one closed too.

Thanks for looking! Hope everyone is having a super weekend!
Pin It!

OOOOOHHHH These are so cute. I love the use of the cuddle bug embossing. I have to try inking too. It really adds a new look to the project. I also like the gate fold. You should begin a site for selling your work and for putting together photo albums (doing layouts for those who dont have time to do their own).

I have an idea!!! When you come home, we can turn the room above the garage into a scrap store and call it "The Scrap House" What do you think?
