CADB Post: Happy Turkey Day!

Well, maybe not quite! This weeks theme at the Card A Day Blog is Thanksgiving. Here is my entry for this theme.

To make my card, I first printed out my image, this cute little turkey, and one of the sentiments that comes with the set, from McMahon Five I cut it down to about 3 x 3.75 inches, then colored it with Copic markers, E57, E35 and E33, for the head and body, YR16, YR61, YR20, For the lower part of the feathers, and R06, and Spectrum Noir marker,  CT3 for the top of the wings. I also inked the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tea Dye.

For my card base, I used a 5.5" x 4.25" white card, then added a piece of the striped patterned paper from the DCWV Rustic paper pack, cut to 5.25" x 4" on the top of the front, and to that, I added a medium gold piece from the same paper pack, cut to a little smaller than my bottom piece, but before I adhered it, I attached a piece of ribbon that I had in my stash along the bottom. I then added my image above the ribbon.

I hope you like my little turkey card, and that you leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
