Happy Turkey Day cards

Hi Everyone! I'm Kristy from Craftin' on my door, and this is my 1st time posting a project here at Tuesday Treats!

My family {my hubbie and our 1 year-old daughter} and I will be heading to Southern California to visit our best friends for Thanksgiving! While we are there we will also be seeing my bestie's family, and her hubbie's family so I thought why not make them all a Thanksgiving card!

Here's what I came up with:
I used the Doodlecharms cartridge,  the Lacy Lables cartridge, and of course my trusty Gypsy to get this card started! First, I chose the "turkey," "shadow," and "shadow for the plate." Next, I sized them at 2 1/2", and then used the {duplicate} button to add more.
Then, I used the "Flower2" label from Lacy Labels. I "unlinked" the width and height so that I could make it 5" x 5".
Paper Recipe:
Base of card-Kraft card stock from JoAnn's cut at 5 1/4" x 10 1/2". Then scored and folded in half to make a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card.
Brown-Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip
Pattern paper-K & Co
Blue-Stampin' Up Baja Breeze
Cream Parchment-Recollections
Ribbon-Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip Satin
Brown and White Bakers Twine-from a local scrapbook store

I glued the pattern paper down onto the brown paper using my super cute Pink ATG. Then I used the "cheater method" of taping the ribbon to the back of the card stock before adhering it to the base of the card.
Next, I attached each of these to the base of the card. I love to add dimension so I used pop dots to adhere the turkeys to the cards.
Then, I tied on the bows, typed up a sentiment on my computer, punched them out with a SU circle punch, added bakers twine, and attached the sentiments to the bows.

I have a confession to make....I had first cut out the turkeys using the dark brown chocolate chip color (because I liked the way it all matched), but as I was putting them together they looked like {BURNT} turkeys to me! ;) What do you think?
Well, I hope you all enjoyed this easy, but elegant Thanksgiving card! Thanks for having me at Tuesday Treats, and please feel free to hop on over to my blog anytime Craftin' on my door!

Happy Turkey Day Everyone!

<3 Kristy

So cute! Don't toss those "burnt" turkeys, just tell people they're deep-fried. Seriously, hat's what they look like when you fry 'em. LOL Lovely cards!
