I know I am stating the obvious here, but Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, so… I have been busy making more cards. I love this time of the year, I try to be thankful each and every day, but I really like that there is a day set aside for us to reflect on our blessings.
My card today is a bit whimsical, but it still conveys a heartfelt thanks. I used Sunsational Stamps Tom Turkey image. I just love the look on his adorable face!
For the background, I didn’t want to distract from Tom Turkey‘s whimsical image, so I stamped it in subtle shades of yellow and green. I used the “Rock-n-Roll” technique with the full tree image. First I inked it up in CTMH Canary Yellow and then I rolled the edges and dabbed here and there in the center of the stamp with CTMH Topiary. I sponged Distress Peeled Paint for the grass and Distress Tumbled Glass for the sky. I highlighted the shadows of the trees with my ShinHan Sap Green alcohol maker. I adhered Tom Turkey to the shaker window by gluing just the part that was behind the frame. I added foam tape to raise the window frame up. Before adding the shaker elements I rubbed them with my Embossing Buddy to remove the static cling without dulling the acetate window. Finally I added the whole thing to a card base and stamped the inside with my Always Grateful sentiment.
