Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone!  I have another Thanksgiving card for you today.  I think I am now ready to work on some Christmas cards soon.  I really need to if I'm going to give any out this year :)

This will be a picture heavy post.  I took pictures along the way of assembling this die cut from Too Cute by Jessica Happy Thanksgiving Kids Turkey.  I love her files.  This one has several little cuts so I thought it might be helpful to some if you would like to put this one together.

1.  This is a picture of all the parts on my work space.  Yes, those tiny black dots go on the turkey for the eyes.  I am very impressed that my Cricut Explore cut them out!  I started at the bottom with the turkey feet.

2.  The feathers don't go on all stacked.  They line up with the outside in different levels. This is the back layer and I decided to do some faux stitching on all these layers.

3.  Here is the second layer.  It doesn't look even, but I matched it up with the outside feathers and it fits.

4.  Here you can see the last feather layer.  It matches the part of the base you can see in the above picture. (these are not the best pictures as my work space in not the best place to take them)

5.  This is what I think the turkey should look like with the neck.  This is not glued down--I was laying these pieces out where I wanted to place them since I wanted to glue down the neck and 'hands' first.

6. Here's where I glued down the neck, 'hands' and pieces above the legs.

7.  Here is the turkey almost done with the head and body on.  Since there were several layers between the body and the base, I used thin pop dots for it so it just looks even with the rest of the layers.

And here's my close up of the completed turkey girl on my card.  I think she is so cute!  I finished off my card with some yummy Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine and some home made enamel dots. The stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas Happy Celebrations set.

I hope you go over to Too Cute by Jessica and check out all her files.  There is a sale going on and be sure to check out the retiring section--they are included in the sale too!
