Turkey Tag Card

This is the second installment in my family Thanksgiving card series.  I fell in love with my sister's turkey stamp and used him in three of the four cards you'll be seeing.  This time, I stamped him on one of those great K&Co journaling tags.

Some Details:
  • The turkey was stamped directly onto the K&Co journaling tag using Timber Brown StazOn ink, colored with marker, and given a layer of Glossy Accents to make him pop.
  • I mounted the tag onto a scrap of cardboard, cut to fit, then distressed and antiqued the edges.  After adding a bit of twine to the top, I attached it to the card with foam tape for dimension.
  • I again made my own charms by stamping two different size leaves onto kraft cardstock, coloring the veins, adding some Vintage Photo Distress Stickles and Glossy Accents, and then fussy cutting.  Some Tim Holtz jump rings and trinket pin and voila!...custom charms!
  • I also incorporated a scrap of Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine behind the leaves.  It's embossed with the woodgrain texture fade and "nailed" on with some antique copper brads.
