Let's Talk Turkey!

It's time once again for a new challenge over at CardzTV. The new challenge is "Thankful" to make a project for Thanksgiving. Here is what I came up with.

I found this cut in the Silhouette store and thought it was perfect for this challenge. The cut includes the banner that reads Eat Pie.

I started with a gold card stock base cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added the dark burnt orange mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the orange mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5". That patterned paper mat is cut at 3 1/2" X 4 3/4" and is from a Doodlebug Autumn Paper pad. The green strip is from the same paper pad and cut at 3/4" X 4 3/4".

The turkey was cut at about 3 1/2" tall. I added googly eyes rather than using the eyes from the cut. I attached the turkey to the card with one layer of foam tape. For my Eat Pie banner I used one layer of foam tape at each end and two  layers in the middle.

My Let's talk Turkey sentiment is from the Thankful for You Cardztv Stamp Set. I embossed the sentiment with some Earthtone Paprika WOW Embossing powder.

Now if you want a chance to win one of Mary's great stamp sets, head on over to CardzTV and post your entry into the challenge. At the end of the challenge Mary will select a winner using Hope to see you there!


  1. What a fun card!!! Love it!!! The googly eyes are just perfect!
    Thanks for sharing,

  2. So cute-- love the background paper you selected to show off this super cute turkey :)

  3. Fabulous! I've seen similar turkeys made with scalloped circle punches, but didn't know I could find one in the Silhouette store. Great news, since I have very few punches.

  4. I love your turkey!! The embossing really shows off the sentiment. TFS :)
