Gobble, Gobble Swap

I signed up for a Holiday Mini catalogue swap on Splitcoaststampers not too long ago - something I've never done before. I decided to use the Gobble, Gobble stamp. I'm surprised at how much use I am getting out of this little turkey! Thankfully we only had to do 7 cards because there was a lot of detail in this one!
  1. To begin run a piece of really rust cardstock (100661), cut to 4"x5-1/4", through the Big Shot using the wood grain texture plate from the Texture Plates #4 kit (114531).
  2. Also using the Big Shot, cut a circle with the Clear Circle die (114533) from Autumn Meadows dsp (116769) available in the mini catalogue.
  3. The scallop circle die (113468) was used to cut the chocolate chip cardstock (102128).
  4. Ink the turkey from the Gobble, Gobble set (116535) using More Mustard (100076), Really Rust (100073) and Chocolate Chip (100071) stampin' write markers, and stamp it onto Very Vanilla cardstock (101650).
  5. Using paper snips (103579), carefully cut around the turkey.
  6. Use the scallop edge punch (112091) along one short end of a 2"x3-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
  7. Sponge the edges of all cardstock, including vanilla card base (4-1/4"x11"), using Chocolate Chip ink (100908).
  8. Wrap a 5" piece of wide chocolate grosgrain (109051) around the vanilla piece, holding it in place with mini glue dots (103683).
  9. Attach this piece to a 2-1/8"x3-1/8" piece of Taken with Teal cardstock (101584).
  10. Attach the turkey above the ribbon using a dimensional (104430) and knot a piece of linen thread (104199) around the centre of the chocolate ribbon.
  11. Punch out a 1" circle (109046) from taken with teal cardstock, fold it over the really rust cardstock, punch a 1/16" circle (101227) and insert a vintage brad (109109).
  12. Attach really rust to card front.
  13. Now attach your scallop circle and dsp circle, allowing a little to over hang the left side and bottom of card. Trim excess.
  14. Attach focal point to card front.
