Punch art is the term given to using our Stampin’ Up! punches to make an image of some kind. This punch art turkey is easy to make with some ovals and circles and goes great on a Thanksgiving card. You could also make a punch art turkey like this and use on place cards or decorations on your Thanksgiving table.
I’ve been cleaning out my craft room and going through all the pages I printed out of card ideas, etc. Some are so old and out of date, plus with ideas so prolific on the internet I seldom print things out any more. But when I came across this cute turkey idea I’d printed many years ago I had to set it aside to make!
The Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper is perfect to use for this card! The coordinating colors that go with the paper are Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip so I used those for the card base and layer and parts of the turkey. Then I just punched a body for the turkey with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, the head with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, the feathers with the Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch. Of course for the eyes and feet the Owl Punch came in handy! The waddle is the Small Heart Punch upside down. The Thanksgiving greeting is from one of my favorite stamp sets Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched out with the ever-popular Word Window Punch.

Here is the inside of the card. I added a Whisper White layer since the card is too dark to write on. I inked up the Magnificent Maple stamp in Crushed Curry (the lighter color first) and then “rock ‘n rolled” the stamp on the edges in the Tangerine Tango to get the two-toned effect. The greeting is from the Four You stamp set.
