I had a fun time creating this little stepper card with my Pilgrim people from the Paper Doll Dressup Cricut Cartridge. Everything was right on the two pages for the Pilgrims including the ship, pie, and turkey. I started with a basket print background which is the same paper I used for the cornicopia inside. I made the serving platter and pie plate out of shiny silver, and the crust and turkey out of a piece of mottled tan which made them look like they were baked golden brown.The ship is cut out twice and glued together for strength as a stiffer cardstock wouldn't cut the railings out nicely. The paper under the ship is a little piece cut from a beach scene. The little leaves are punched with a mini leaf punch from leaf photo paper which made them look sooo real. I hand drew the faces because I hadn't received the face stamps from Peachy Keen yet but I don't think they are too bad. The boy's belt buckle and both of their shoe buckles are gold glitter pen. The sentiment is cut from the George & Basic Shapes cartridge with stitching in black pen. Then I stamped a little "BLESSINGS" on the second step. When you place it on the table, it opens up to see all the layers above one another. This card will go to a needy family with boxes of food for Thanksgiving from myself and my co-workers. This is something we do every year and it is fun to see how much stuff we can put into the boxes before they take them to the recipient. I know they appreciate it because I was once one of those needy families when my kids were very young. I feel it is my turn to reciprocate since I have been blessed with so many good things!
