Cute Rosette Turkey

Wow! Where has the year gone? In the US it is already Thanksgiving time!!! Yikes!!! From here the end of 2012 is within sight :-)  If you are like me, you are looking around and thinking "Oh No! I haven't started getting ready for the other big holiday yet... lol"

I thought I would share a quick little project with you.  It is a very simple Rosette Turkey, the turkey itself is the result of a search on the keyword "turkey" I then picked one that I liked, and printed it 4 times (why 4? Well, I wanted to add dimension so I broke the image into the following pieces:
  • Base image - colored in with colored pencils, what can I say, I still have a young child :-)
  • Feathers and Body and Feet - colored again, but this time added glitter to the pieces that were going to be visible.... as you can see in the picture, I definitely played with the layers here, and cut a few of the feathers out with the next layer I cut.
  • Wings - colored and glittered, and threw in a few feathers for good measure
  • Cute little face - colored and glittered
Tip: For the base image, I colored the outside pieces and cut off his feet to make it a little easier.

So this is how the turkey was born... My sister-in-law doesn't understand and cannot imagine why I would go to all the trouble... Yes, I have a wonderful family who believes that I am completely batty to spend my time crafting... You'd think there would be one of them who would support me? But I digress...

For the Rosette, I punched a Martha border and then used my Martha Score Pad to score the lines... folded and made it into a circle... Ok, you got me... I didn't measure how long my strip was, probably 6 - 8 inches, because I have a lot of strips that length.

I then used a large scallop punch (Marvy Giga Punch 3") as my base and mounted everything on top.

For the card, I created a lip and used the turkey to hold it closed.  I was experimenting, as I included a gift card with it.  This little fella was part of a gift basket.

I hope you are enjoying day, and cannot wait to see all the fun turkey cards everyone has made!
