Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm an overachiever, we already did the family Thanksgiving dinner last night and will be doing Thanksgiving Dinner, the Sequel tonight.

All the purveying, prep, and what not have kept me out of my craft room, so I'm reposting an oldie (but hopefully goodie) Thanksgiving card.

Here it is. It's an accordion card with a belly band to keep it together.

Front View with Belly Band:

Accordion Card:

The card features the adorable penguins from the Gobble It Up set by The Cat's Pajamas. The penguins, domed cloche, pie, and sentiments are from that set. The wine bottle is called Pop the Cork and is also by the Cat's Pajamas. The bread basket is from the Kitchen Classics set by Crafty Secrets.

The entire scene was stamped in Memento ink, then colored with Copic markers. The cloche, turkey, penguin bills, and penguin feet were coated with a layer of embossing powder to add dimension and shine. There was a whole lotta masking involved to get that turkey on the table and to add that homey yellow background, which was sponged with Distress Ink.

The patterned paper is from the Origins collection by Basic Grey.

Thanks for visiting today and

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope your meal is delicious, the company good, and that you have someone else to clean up for you. If you're traveling, be safe.


  1. Kathi, what a perfectly adorable T'day card! Love it! Those penguins are just the cutest, love your coloring & the fun little scene, love the design, the fab sentiment, and those gorgeous papers! :^)
    Hope you are having a wonderful T'day--mine has been great: got to eat yummy turkey dinner at The Deli & have left-overs for another complete meal! :^)
    Hugs, Penny

  2. Love this idea for a card and such a spot on image to use for the triple design! So darn cute :)

  3. Love this fold and what a wonderfully creative way to use all of those adorable penguins.
