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.
