Thanksgiving gift card

Hi everyone!

At PCD, we are already getting in the Thanksgiving mood with the new release this month. The set consists of a pilgrim boy and girl as well as the cute little turkey I've used for my make today. Have a look on the blog to see the set and more lovely examples from my fellow teamies!

I decided on a gift card I guess you could use for just about any gift. I wanted to use some leaves on the card and found some chipboard ones in my stash, but they were bright blue and pink and therefore not really that suitable. However, I just covered them with some orange & red scraps I still had, making them fit the theme perfectly. I then used Distress Ink and glossy varnish to give them some interest. Leaves aren't perfect after all :)




Materials:
* Platypus Creek Digi Thanksgiving Turkey, coloured with Spectrum Noirs
* Sakura Clear Glitter Pen on the turkey feathers and body
* Chipboard leaves + scraps
* Distress Ink Vintage Photo
* Clear Varnish
* Personal Impressions Sentiment stamp
* Ribbon from stash
