With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, it only feels natural to want to express our gratitude to those who help make our world go round. Yes?
This year, I’m thanking friends and family with these mixed-media cards featuring a delightful little paper pieced turkey using layers of basic punched shapes using a variety of my Fiskars punches.
First, punch both scalloped circles and regular circles, in graduating sizes, making sure that the colors of each layer contrast with one another. It’s also fun to mix up the textures and finishes of the papers you use. For example, maybe mix in some cork paper for the texture and a bit of metallic cardstock for the shine.
For my turkey, the shapes I used from largest to smallest are:
- Circle Lever Punch 4XL
- Pretty Scallops Lever Punch 4XL
- Circle Lever Punch 3XL
- Pretty Scallops Lever Punch XXL
- Round ‘N Round Squeeze Punch XL
- Round ‘N Round Squeeze Punch Large
