Thanksgiving Dinner Invitations


Are you ready?!?! Thanksgiving will be here before you know it!
If you need some inspiration head over to The Cutting Cafe for this weeks blog post.
The design team is featuring three files that are sure inspire you.

Thanksgiving Day Printable Stamp Set

 This year we will be having 19 guest for dinner. With us that makes 25! 

I made invitations for our dinner this year. Aren't they just the cutest!?!

To make these, I used the Thanksgiving Day Printable Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe and the Gobblers file from Kadoodle Bugs Designs
I got the step card cutting file from a Facebook group that I am a part of...Cricut Lovers Guide To Design Space. It's a great group to be in if you have a Cricut! The file was created by Narelle Darley. 

I got the foil leaves from Target in their dollar bins. I love them! I think they'd look great in a shaker card. That's a project for another day.

I used a Ranger Perfect Medium brush marker to shade the turkeys body and feathers. It was the first time I had tried this technique. I have to say that it is much faster than chalking. However, I like the look of chalk better. 

Thanksgiving Day Printable Stamp Set comes with several different stamps to chose from. 
You're sure to find one that suits your needs.

Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe on the 21st and check out all the projects from the design team. If you leave a comment you will be entered to win 3 free files of your choice. 

I hope you all have a safe, fantastic Thanksgiving. Thank you for stopping by!
