A Trendy Thanksgiving Wish

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!!
