Card Making Night - The Third Card's a Turkey

This is the third card we made at the last Card Making Night.  Isn't he a cute little turkey? He's really quite easy to make too. 

  1. Make the feathers
    1. Punch 3 scallop circles in your choice of fall colors.
    2. Cut five scallops off the bottom
    3. Fold the scallops in half and open them back up.
    4. Fold each side of the flat bottom up to the center crease
  2. Punch the body from Chocolate Chip card stock with 1 3/8" circle punch
  3. Attach the feathers to the back of the body with a glue dot
  4. Punch the head from the 3/4" Circle Punch and attach to body
  5. Use a black Stampin' Write marker for the eyes and cut a triangular piece of Pumpkin Pie for the beak.
  6. Cut the hat from Basic Black card stock.
  7. Use the owl punch to punch the feet (the heart section of the punch) out of Pumpkin Pie card stock.
