Here’s a cute idea I picked up from Julie Davison on Pinterest on how to turn the penguin from Penguin Place into a turkey. I liked her idea so much I decided to put him on a Thanksgiving card.

  • Stamp two large daisies onto a scrap of Basic White using Bumble Bee ink and punch out with the large daisy punch
  • Glue the two daisy pieces together with the leaves of the top one in between the leaves of the bottom one to give it dimension, then glue the daisy to the back of the penguin.

  • Punch out various size leaves using the Intricate Leaves dies from Soft Suede and Calypso Coral cardstock, a scrap of Copper Foil and Ombre Specialty Paper. 
  • An easy way to apply liquid glue to the intricate cut leaves is to squeeze a little glue onto the silicone craft sheet, then use a small piece of craft sponge to dab small amounts of glue to bottom of the leaves (don’t apply glue to the top parts of the leaves – leave those loose.)  Then tuck the leaves under the DSP strip.
  • Die cut “Happy Thanksgiving” from Word Wishes from Soft Succulent cardstock.  Dab liquid glue to the back of the die cut pieces and adhere to the DSP strip.
  • Stamp a sentiment of your choice to the 5 ¼” x 4” piece of basic white cardstock and adhere to the inside of the card.
