Good Morning! Today I am sharing a Thanksgiving Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Day of Thanks stamp set. This turkey looks just like the one on the Thanksgiving turkey platter that I have been using for 40 years, so I just had to get the set because it is a real traditional Thanksgiving turkey! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I also used the wonderful Gather Together designer series paper for the card, so I started by cutting a panel of the Merry Merlot paper with the maple leaves I took a strip of the checked paper and adhered it across the Merry Merlot panel. I cut a strip of the Gather Together Crumb cake ribbon and attached it to the panel as shown. I cut a banner of Calypso coral and ran it through the pinewood planks embossing folder to give it some texture and attached it to the panel. I topped it off with a banner of the leafy Pretty Peacock paper.
I took a strip of Mint Macaron and stamped the feather from the Stampin’ Up! Day of Thanks stamp set in Mint Macaron on it several times, each time stamping it off twice first. I stamped the sentiment on the strip in Cajun Craze. I attached it to the Merry Merlot panel, then I attached the decorated panel to a Cajun Craze card base.
I stamped the turkey image from the Stampin’ Up! Day of Thanks stamp set in Early Espresso on a panel of Whisper White. I colored the turkey with Soft Suede, Smoky Slate, Cajun Craze and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. I colored the Sky with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend and the ground with the Light Old Olive. I cut it out with one of the Layering Circle dies and cut a Cajun Craze mat with the scalloped circle that matched it. I adhered them together and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I added two Terra Cotta Tile faceted dots to finish it off.
On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the Merry Merlot paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze. I also stamped another feather in Mint Macaron, after stamping off twice.
Next week when I get back from On Stage local, it will be time to send out all my Thanksgiving cards … and plan my Thanksgiving day menu.
