Right in time for Thanksgiving I am excited to offer you my first holiday card – the tiny gilded turkey! The cards are 3.5 x 5 (envelope included) and are blank inside making them perfect to send as well wishes for the holiday or thank you to your host and/or hostess for the festive day. The turkey image is from a vintage letterpress block on my vintage letterpress machine. Each one is individually hand printed on Crane Lettra paper. You can feel the imprint of the image pressed into this lush paper, giving you pause, because this feels like something special.

I heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Ranunculus with Ranger gold embossing powder and then I continued to layer the gold embossing powder on top of that. Then, I die cut that gold piece with the new Hero Arts Star Confetti die. I found these adorable wood cut trees at Target and all of that was placed onto a Hero Arts piece of red shimmery card stock.
I pounced alcohol inks in green and metallic gold on to Yupo paper. I found the die cut leaves at Target and colored some of them with Distress. Putting some foam under the Yupo, I adhered it to some Neenah Desert Storm card stock. For the “thanks” sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, I used Ranger Carnation Red Archival Ink and experimented stamping it directly onto a piece of foam. The card is finished with an acorn accent from Little B.
What do you get when you put texture paste and gold embossing powder together? See below. 🙂
