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.

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!
