Cricut Artiste Thankful Turkey card

Cricut Artiste Thankful Turkey card
Hello, friends!

Don't forget that if you place an order of any size with me this month you will be entered into a drawing to get all of the hostess rewards this month! Don't miss out!

Today's card was made for the Bitten By the Bug blog challenge. This week we were asked to make something with a turkey. I remembered a stamp set I had that coordinated with the Artiste cartridge. Instead of a golden goose, with the help of gold embossing powder, I made a golden turkey! 

The golden patterned paper was made by using a back ground stamp set called Season of Thanks. I stamped it with versa mark ink and heat embossed it with the gold embossing powder just like I did with the turkey.

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Artiste Thankful Turkey card

If you do not have an Explore, I cut the turkey out at 1 3/4".

Every time you post a project using embossing powder, I chastise myself for not trying it yet. I can see where it takes a project from pretty to gorgeous! I also have the stamp set you used as a background....I must use it this year! Thanks for your inspiration!
