While thousands of children are eagerly awaiting their neighborhood route to trick or treat tonight, I've been busy designing Thanksgiving cards.

Creating these cards is one of my favorite things to do this time of year so my quest for the perfect card began.  I looked through the Holiday Catalog admiring all the amazing stamps, designer papers and embellishments.  In the array of great products I noticed there were no traditional Thanksgiving stamp images. No pilgrims, no turkeys, no cornucopia. 

Uh oh!

Then I took a closer look at the Paisleys & Posies Bundle. This stamp set has framelits that coordinate with the images.  While studying the shapes I realized that some of the framelits would create the perfect turkey! 

Using your stamps and framelits in an unintended way stretches your investment.  With a little imagination you can take your punches, framelits and even stamps and use them in a new, creativate way.   This turkey would look great on your Thanksgiving table as place cards, added to a napkin ring, for dinner invitations and even on bags for meal leftovers.

I've included pictures, cutting dimensions and a "piece key" below to help you recreate this card.

And, while you're watching today's video project, help me, please.  What is the correct name for that 'thing' that hangs under the turkey's beak?  I'm stymied!  Leave me a comment.  

Here's a great collage, perfect for pinning to your Pinterest board!
