Silhouette Sunday - Turkey in a Hat

Today's Silhouette Sunday project is an adorable Thanksgiving turkey card.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  The card base is made from white card stock.  I cut a brown mat, from K&Company card stock, at 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  The green leaf background is from The Fall and Halloween Stack by DCWV and is 5 1/4"x4."  I cut another piece of the same brown card stock at 2 1/2"x4" and topped it off with two border punched pieces of card stock.  I used the apron lace punch by Fiskars.

I used the "turkey in  pilgrim hat" cut for my image.  This cut is by Michelle Renee and is #50200.  When it is all assembled it measures about 4" tall and 3" wide.  I adhered the pilgrim hat with foam tape just around the edges.  The turkey is loose inside so that it can be pulled out.  I added a piece of white card stock to the bottom of the turkey and stamped a Peachy Keen sentiment to it, the sentiment is from the October 2013 Stamp of the Month kit.

I cut a piece of white card stock into a banner and stamped my sentiment on it.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the "A Holiday to Remember" set.  I added yellow glitter and glossy accents to the buckle on the hat, glossy accents to the turkey's beak, and candy cane glitter to the turkey's wattle.  I finished off the front of the card with some gems.  I took some clear gems and colored them orange to fit with my color scheme.

I also finished the inside of this card.  I cut a brown mat at 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and a green leafy mat at 5 1/8"x3 7/8."  The orange mat is 3 3/4"x3," the brown mat is 3 5/8"x2 7/8," and the white mat is 3 1/2"x2 3/4."  I used a stamp from Fiskars for my sentiment.

I made this card following the sketch at My Craft Spot and using the current color combo at Color Throwdown.  I also made this for the Thanksgiving theme challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.
