I started going through my stash for Thanksgiving cards and came across this cute little Turkey! Unfortunately, I don't know where I saw it at, so if it's yours, please let me know so I can give you credit.
Paper - Very Vanilla, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, More Mustard - SU
Ink - Chocolate Chip - SU
Stamps - Sentiment - Michael's $1 bin
Accessories - Top Note Die, Circle Punches - 1 3/8", 3/4", 1/4", double circle, Square punch - 3/4", Scallop Circle Punch, Boho Blossom Punch - SU
Embellishments - Brown Ribbon
Folding my CS in half, I used my Top Note die to cut out my card, making sure the top part of my fold was placed under the top cut mark of my die so it wouldn't be cut. I then sponged it with some Chocolate Chip ink. To make my turkey, I used my 1 3/8" circle punch for the body in Chocolate Chip. Then I used the 3/4" circle punch in More Mustard for his face. I used the 1/4" circle punch in Real Red for his buttons and the double circle punch in Chocolate Chip for his eyes. You can use the square punch to cut out his hat in Chocolate Chip and then just trim it to approx. 1/2" x 3/4" using some of the left over for the brim. I just cut a small piece of Pumpkin Pie in a triangle for his beak.
To make his feathers use your scallop circle punch. Punch one in each color. For each color cut off 5 scallops and then with the remaining scallops score after 2, leave 5 and then again at the remaining 2 to the center. Fold each score line over and you have the feathers. Do this with each colored scallop. I used dimensionals and popped the turkey up on the scallops and glued the pieces of Boho punch in More Mustard for his feet. Then just adhere your turkey in the center of the card and stamp your sentiment. Tie your ribbon on the top and your little turkey is ready to go! Here are some pictures creating the feathers with the scallop circle.
I just drew the lines so you could see the process.
Here is where I cut the 5 scallops off.
This is what each scallop will look like after you score them.
It was a busy weekend. My new granddaughter's name is Jennifer Faith. She and her Mom came home from the hospital on Sat. and both are doing well. She has gained 2 ozs. and now weighs 4 lbs. 6 ozs. Of course none of the clothes my daughter has fit her, so tomorrow it's off to the baby dept. to get some preemie outfits!
I hope you enjoy making this cute turkey. Have a great week!
Thanks for stopping bye,
