Gobble, Gobble!

Don't you just love love it when you make a mistake and it actually turns out to be a good thing?  Well, I was working on some table settings for my Thanksgiving table and I made my turkeys too small so I had to start over and I thought...hmm...wonder if I could make these into some super cute Thanksgiving cards to send out?  Guess what?  I did!  And it only took me two hours to make all four cards!  Check 'em out!

So a little explanation of what I did and used.  First, the turkeys are a print and cut that I got from the Silhouette store (they are on sale right now!) that I cut on my Cameo (side note...I love how easy print and cut is, I think I'll be using it more often!).  The sentiment images is from Jaded Blossom's Holiday Treat Tags and is stamped on and then layered with the Treat Tag Die, again from Jaded Blossom.  With all this Jaded Blossom being used I'm going to enter these cards in their monthly challenge which is Thanksgiving this month.  I also got this super cute paper from Jaded Blossom which is by Doodlebug Designs and is called fall friends.  The twine is Trendy Twine's Spiced Pumpkin and the cardstock is from SU!

Now on the inside of all the cards I just put a piece of cardstock to write on and the pumpkin 'tape' from Autumn Designer Tapes from...yep, Jaded Blossom.  Almost all edges are inked with complimentary colors to the papers.  Also, these cards are 4 ¼" x 4 ¼" as I thought the images would look best on that size card.

See?  A happy mistake!  Love it!

It was definitely meant to be that those turkeys were too small for your intended project. These cards are fantastic and I love that color if Trendy Twine :)
