World Card Making Day! UPDATED

As a mom of three, I have learned I have to get things done well in advance. So I used World Card Making Day to get ahead. I made 5 cards for our pastors for Pastor Appreciation Day the following Sunday. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of those. The boys and I also made Thanksgiving cards for Chris’s teachers and a few others. Out came the box of paints, foam brushes, cardstock, and of course, the little hands! The end result… well, honestly they aren’t completely finished, but I just need to add a few embellishments (ribbons, brads, rub-on transfers, etc.).

I started by cutting some dark brown cardstock to make a 6×6 inch card. Then over that the tan cardstock would be placed with the handprint turkeys. Next, I used CB’s hand (the biggest one) and did two layers of “feathers” using his handprints. Notice I only used the fingers and not the thumb for the feathers.

After two layers with the larger handprints, I did two layers of CJ’s hand (smaller handprint).
Here is a picture of the completed feathers.
I then used CB’s hand again, this time the entire hand including the thumb to make the body of the turkey.
Stay tuned for more pictures of the finished product!
