Thanksgiving dinner

Bring Joy with Brenda

Created by Brenda 


Thanksgiving dinner

We don’t tend to see many Thanksgiving Cards out there, we tend to go from Halloween to Christas. So let’s slow down and give thanks for being able to have Thanksgiving Day. Make this card and send it to the ones you are thankful for.


Materials Needed:

Gina k designs card stock dark chocolate, kraft and white.

Carta Bella paper Autumn collection

Fisher Trimmer

Martha Stewart score board

Big shot

Technique Tuesday Turkey and Pie

Dot liner by Kokuyo


Double sided tape

Wink of stella



  1. With dark chocolate card stock cut 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4”.
  2. Cut a piece of the Carta Bella Autumn paper cut 5 1/4” x 4” and adhere it to the same dimensions of white card stock.  Then adhere that to only half of the base of the card as shown. 



      Now add another piece of white card  stock cut the same as above, to inside of the card.

3. For the table cut one strip of 1/2” wideand two pieces at 1/4” wide. Then cut

      the 1/2 inch piece to fit your card and angle off the ends. Adhere the other two

    pieces to the table, these are the legs. Adhere the table to the card and cut off

    the excess of the legs that hang over.

4. Die cut the turkey and the pie from dark chocolate, Kraft, and white. Adhere

     the dark chocolate cutout outline onto the white card stock and then fill in

     the turkey with the kraft pieces. For the pie I just took the outline in dark

    chocolate and added it to the kraft piece. For the turkey I colored in the

     bottom tray black and added wink if stella to the pie. Adhere them to the

     table top with your dot liner.

5. Lastly to make the picture frame, cut  out a section from the other side of

   Carta Bella Autumn paper that measures  1 1/2” square. Also cut two strips of 1/4”

   dark chocolate card stock and add them around the picture. Adhere the

   picture to the card with dimensionals.
