I made this card for a cousin whose birthday falls during Thanksgiving week. I used SU's retired "Old Fashioned Stove" and "In the Kitchen" -- two of my all-time favorites -- which team up well with the old-fashioned script "Happy Birthday" in Birthday Greetings. I also found the Terrified Turkey stamp and thought it would look cute in this dual birthday/Thanksgiving card.
The stove was stamped and embossed in black. I cut two of the stove doors with an Exacto knife to hinge, and blackened the insides of the doors with a marker. The bread was stamped on a separate piece, lined up and taped behind the open oven door. The turkey in the pot was stamped separately, cut and glued inside the larger oven door opening. The mitt, cake, flour sacks and butter churn were stamped separately and mounted with dimensionals.
