Thanksgiving Door Card

Hello friends.  Can you believe it is November already?  I hate to sound old, but.... If the shoe fits....  

Today I am sharing my Bitten By The Bug 2 project for the week.  Our French Design Team sister, Dany, selected this week's Cricut Challenge cut.  Dany asked us to use Pumpkins on a fall themed project.  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I have started on my Thanksgiving cards - something I never sent out before becoming a paper crafter!

I used three Cricut Cartridges to create this project, along with other materials.  The door was cut by hand, as were the panels.  I used black ink on the door and door panel edges.  The door handle was cut using the French Manor cartridge.  I love that door handle.  The pumpkins were cut using the Pooh and Friends cartridge.  I took three of the negative cut areas from the orange part of the pumpkins to make additional swirls for the top of the pumpkins.

The wreath was made using a die and stamp set I purchased from a friend.  I am really enjoying using this set, you may have seen the Christmas cards I created with this previously.  The banner and "Happy Thanksgiving" sentiment were created with the Cricut also.  The banner was cut from the Close To My Heart Artistry cartridge.  I used a font on my computer and had the Cricut write the sentiment on the banner.

This card actually looks even better in real life.  I had difficulty getting the card to photograph true to color.

I hope that you can find some time this week to join us in our fall pumpkin challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2.  Our design team loves to see your ideas on our weekly challenges.
