This elegant turkey and "Bountiful" phrase comes to us via Cricut's new Thanksgiving limited edition cartridge.

The swirl is part of the image/cut. I changed it up by using a Glitter Kit in handsome metallics.

I must say, I had a ton of trouble cutting the Bountiful word -- it took at least 7 tried to get it, and still, I think I lost part of the "f" in the word. For sure, I lost the dot over the "i", so that was accomplished by affixing a small gem.

Here is the inside of the card:

The phrase was cut using Cricut's "Wild Card" cartridge, and the beautiful leaf was cut using my Makes The Cut software ... the leaf was in the users' gallery full of free downloadable SVG images. The leaf was part of a border that cuts 12" long -- very intricate. After using the part of the border I needed, I then had individual left-over leaves. Again, I glittered in fall colors.

Give thanks to handy devices like Cricut!!
