Hello friends. Today I’m kicking off the Fall & Thanksgiving new release from Cheery Lynn Designs. We will be showcasing new Fall and Thanksgiving themed dies on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog today through Tuesday.
Today you will find the Fall and Thanksgiving new release dies added to the Cheery Lynn Designs website. Hurry over to view all the new Fall/Thanksgiving themed dies.
I started with an A6 (6-1/2″ x 4-3/4″) card base. Again I felt that a solid off-white background was too plain, so I pulled out one of my favorite dies – A2 Lattice Frame die
and cut it out in off white to add some texture to the background.
I cut the sentiment out in kraft and brown cardstock and adhered the layers, slightly offsetting them for a shadow effect. I then cut the various pieces in the cardstock colors that you see using the remaining dies in the set. For the turkey I started with a brown base and then layered on the different color pieces. I lightly inked some of the edges on the turkey pieces along with inking the edges of the ‘Eat Beef’ sign. I finished off the turkey with some fun wiggle-eyes because, well…. he just needed them!
I then cut out the pumpkin and leaves and inked them for dimension as well.
Once I built the layered portion of the main card panel, I added a layer of natural mulberry paper and added it to the card base. Then I added the sentiment and the focal pieces across the bottom. I added the pumpkins and turkey fist and then filled in with the leaves.
