Artiste Rosette Turkey!

Today I have a fun little turkey to share with you, but I want to remind you that you have until tomorrow night at 8:00pm PST to enter my Cocoa Treat Card Giveaway! I just have to say how nice it is to get some comments from you out there in the blog world, and it is very encouraging for me to continue to post my projects :) Please don't be shy, I'd love to hear from you! 
**UPDATE** Winners announced HERE! Congrats Heidi and Jan!

Now on to my turkey....

This fun little project is inspired by Tim Holtz. You can get his turkey template here, and I decided to make mine with the Cricut Artiste rosettes and burlap ribbon! First, using the turkey template, I cut out a piece of thin cardboard and used my tombow adhesive to glue the burlap ribbon to it and cut it out with the awesome CTMH scissors.  I covered both sides of the cardboard this way.

Next, I inked my burlap turkey with the fantastic new CTMH pigment inks!

I cut out my rosettes from page 50 of the handbook. I used the Clementine papers, and cut out the Accent 4 rosette at 2", the Card rosette (base) at 2", and the 3D Object rosette (shift) at 1 1/2". Don't forget to cut 2 of each of these to make a complete rosette!

I used the CTMH 1 1/4" circle punch for the rosette middle, and inked them with Cashmere, Sorbet, and Saddle exclusive inks.

I made the base for the turkey out of a scallop circle from Dimensional Elements Mixed Shapes and covered it with a piece cut to fit at 2" from Page 41 from Art Philosophy, Circle 3.

Now that I have all the pieces to make my turkey, it was easy to glue together the rosettes with Liquid Glass,   making sure to line up the edges at the bottom. Then glue these to the base, and add the turkey head to the front!

 You could easily add a name banner and use these for your Thanksgiving place settings! Please leave me a comment to let me know if you are going to make some turkeys, too :)

I'm linking this post to the Canvas, Cork, & Burlap Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! You have until midnight EDT on Monday, November 19 to link up your own project. I hope I've inspired you!

Happy Crafting!
