Autumn Colors Challenge


This is my first time participating in a challenge with SVG Cutting Files.  The challenge is for fall colors, you can create anything as long as you use fall colors and something from SVG Cutting Files.

I went ahead and made a Thanksgiving card using their Chibi Turkey file.  It’s a pretty cute little bird.   Although I did just realize I put the beak and little wing-hands on up-side down! oops.


I designed the card base, flag and maple leaves.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the elements for the card.

The “let’s talk turkey” flag was printed and then cut.  I had the dashed just cut, but they didn’t show up that well, so I went over them with a marker.


I used dimensional foam tabs to elevate the turkey and second level.


This was also my first time using distressing ink on the edges.  I was a little nervous, cause you know if I over do I would have to just re-cut that piece.  But I am pleased with the result.


Don’t forget to go to the challenge page and see all the other amazing projects.
