Cheery Lynn Designs 2016 Fall & Winter Holiday Release – Part 3 Fall & Thanksgiving

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.

On my card today I am showcasing the fun Happy Turkey Day set.  This set is just adorable!  
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.
Cheery Lynn Dies used:
I finished my card off with a fun bi-color double loop bow created on my Bow-it-All Tool with Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin and Brown Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also tucked in some Natural Jute Sting for added texture and interest.

  3. Great card, as always, Bonnie, but I don't think I am quite ready for Thanksgiving. :D) I just love the Cherry Lynn Die set but I am on a crafting diet. (sad face) The best part of this project is your ability to take the traditional fall/harvest colors and make them look so fresh. Thanks for sharing with us here at 613 Avenue Create!

  4. Fantastic card. You are so creative with the dies, and I love the sign he's holding; it made me giggle, lol. Fabulous dimension on this card too. Thanks for playing along this week and I hope to see you back again soon. Good luck!
