Hello everyone! Some of the Trendy Twine DT made some projects to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!! Please be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all of our thankful projects.
Today, I made a Thanksgiving hat shaped card for you. I used Orange Truffle Trendy Twine, the twine of the month, because it just went perfectly on my card.
I used the Thanksgiving hat from Cricut Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge. On my Explore, I flipped one of the images added the shadow image in and hid all my other layers. **Before you hide everything and add a 2nd shadow layer, be sure to make your cut the size of the card you want. This was about 4 1/4- 1/2 inches tall.** Then I copied the shadow shape, and then made a horizontal mirror image of one side. Next, I moved the together on one of the swirls to make it in the card shape. I then selected all (both shadows) and attached. Then you can un-hide your layers so they will all cut.
I did think after the fact that I could have added a score line, but it folded very well and even for me. The finished card size is about 4 1/2 inches tall by 5 inches wide. So it would need a square envelope.
The Orange Truffle Trendy Twine is glued on the swirls (I love swirls)--it did not take long at all to do this. The I tied a double bow to add to the brim :)
I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
