Scalloped Turkey

I have been on a big punch art kick lately (although a lot of today's post was made with the Big Shot Scalloped Circle die). I saw this post on SCS and knew I wanted to try and make it into a card (hers is a gift box). I am really excited with how he turned out! The card was made by cutting 2 Scallop Circles out of Chocolate Chip. Score one of them about an inch down and adhere it to the other one so that the card will open. Three more scallops were cut out of Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron and then cut so that there were only 4 scallops per piece. They were adhered together in the center and then adhered to the Chocolate piece. I used a Chocolate Chip marker to add the detail to the feathers. The feet, beak, and gobbler (not sure if that's what it's really called) were all made from the Scalloped Circle punch just cut to different sizes. His body is the 4th circle on the Coluzzle and his head is the 1 3/8 circle punch. His hat was made with the Word Window punch and then a little square cut from Basic Black and rounded on two corners. The buckle was hand cut from So Saffron and Basic Black and a White gel pen added the details. Finally, I gave him googly eyes! Easy, easy, easy!

The inside was cut with the Coluzzle and stamped using the Holiday Best stamp set (Hostess Level 1) and the Chocolate Chip marker (I eliminated the leaf design)
