COVID is spoiling the most important of family events this year.  I hope that everyone is well and I want you to stay that way.  This is a really simple card, much simpler than the last.  And it fits into an A7 envelope for mailing.

You will need:
Paper Selection

 The base card of this cut out Thanksgiving card needs to be heavier paper (110 lb. wt or heavier.) and two sided.  I couldn’t find Thanksgiving themed two sided paper but if you have some, it will be great.  Use whatever paper you want!   The embellishments are done in traditional Thanksgiving colors.

Cutting the Cut Out Thanksgiving card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a black gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  I used a font called Margaretha and you can download it for free at DaFont.  I know it looks ragged but as you can see , it draws beautifully when welded.  And I already did that for you in this card.

The lettering on the front is cut out so that there is only one layer of base card needed, but the lettering is thin so be careful taking it off the mat.

Assembling the Cut Out Thanksgiving Card
This card is super easy.  First, as always, re crease the center fold.  Make sure you do this carefully so that the cut outs line up properly.  Then attach the embellishments.  Be very careful that the embellishments are first centered.  And then that they do not cover any of the cut outs.  Look at the pictures if you have any questions.
And your Cut Out Thanksgiving card is done!  And remember, it fits in an A& envelope for mailing.  Be save this holiday and wear your masks while shopping to protect yourself and others.
