I think this turkey is extra grateful this year… the family that took him home had a change of heart and decided to have ham instead.
I used the same idea for the background as I did for yesterday’s card. This time, I stamped the leaves on the background in a monochromatic scheme. I thought this works better with the focal image on this card, because it’s not “competing” for your attention. For yesterday’s card, the overall theme was leaves, so I think it was okay.
Stamp set: Falling Leaves
Ink: More Mustard, Sahara Sand marker, Soft Suede marker, Tangerine Tango marker
Paper: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: 2-3/8″ scallop circle punch, 1-3/4″ scallop circle punch, 1-3/8″ circle punch, Two-step Owl punch, Word Window punch, 1″ circle punch, Two Tags Bigz die, Linen thread, Metallics brads, Stampin’ dimensionals
Phew! It turned out to be pretty involved to make the turkey, but I had lots of fun. It is kinda cool in that you can see how the different scallop circle options (from Stampin’ Up!) stack up together. The largest and the smallest are from the punches, and the middle scallop circle is from the Two Tags die.
The turkey’s body is the owl’s body, but with the ears lopped off. The feet were trimmed from a More Mustard piece and layered. His wattle is the heart from the owl punch, upside-down. I cut his beak from another heart (in More Mustard), but you can also cut a triangle. His neck is the word window punch, trimmed shorter.
Oh, and do you see the “grass” under the turkey’s feet? That’s one of the leaf stamps. I just stamped the tips along the bottom of the cardstock.
