It's so great to be back to crafting :) There is a new challenge up at Cricut Cardz! Use the colors blue, brown, orange and white to create a Thanksgiving card.

I decided to go different and create a long and skinny card. I cut orange cardstock 9" x 7.5" and scored/folded at 3 3/4". It fits perfectly in a business envelope! I used some scraps from my patterned paper drawer that fit the color challenge perfectly.

I cut the word "blessings" from my Storybook cartridge using my fit to length feature. I typed in the letters, hit "fit to length" and set my size to 8 1/2" (since the card length was 9"). Clicking the "ok" button before "cut" will let you know how tall the letters will be so there are no surprises! LOL! Been there, done that, ruined the paper ;) These letters ended up being 1 3/4" tall - perfect.

I completed the rest of my sentiment by stamping mini alphas :) Can't wait to see the Thanksgiving cards you create with these colors. Click over to Cricut Cardz to enter!

Thanks for stopping by today! Would love if you checked out my latest San Francisco layout. So much to be thankful for :)

I REALLY like this card!! I especially like how you used a different size card. I know I get stuck in the traditional sizes of cards, so it is nice to see something outside the box! Great job!!
