The tool I chose to use for my cards today is the Perfect Squares Tool. This tool can be used to crop photos, crop stamped images, scoring paper, trimming uneven edges and of course create a perfect square! I actually used it to create the square mat behind the plaid paper. The bottom edge of the tool has a ruler on it which makes it very easy to measure the size of square you want to cut.
All the images used for the card are from Rustic Greetings stamp set. I also used the solid line stamps in the set to create the plaid background.
I added rolled roses, flourishes and ribbon to finish off the card.
For this card I used the Autumn Borders stamp set. The turkey image was colored with copics - YG61, YG63, YG67/G40, G43, G46/R05/W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, W6, W7, W8, W9/E30, E31, E43, E71, E74, E77.
The image was trimmed down using the Perfect Square tool and I also used the tool to cut out the black mat for the image and the mat for the wood grain background.
I finished off this card with a button and twine.
