Margaret our lovely organiser, is one that has challenged me today. I don't have any Christmas Food stamps and so my trusty friend punch art has saved the day.
I love turkey at Christmas, but then I'm a bit of a traditionalist and our turkey usually comes from Field Farm Organics locally and cooked slowly overnight in the Aga is always delicious.
This card also reminded me of when our cheeky Border Collie stole what was left of our turkey on Boxing Day morning a couple of years ago. Olivia caught him dragging the serving plate down the hall with the turkey on top neatly wrapped in tin foil. Caught just in time me thinks!
The turkey is punched using the Stampin' Up! bird punch and I fashioned a cooking tin with silver foil card and made a table for it to sit on. The window is in two layers. I cut two matting layers one to be the backdrop for the scene which I cut just a rectangle out of the size of the inner window frame. The second layer was smaller and I cut the whole frame out. Before cutting I embossed both pieces using the Hardwood embossing folder, but inked it on one side with my brayer before putting it through the Big Shot just to add some toning.
A sprig of holly from some tag toppers I bought in the M&S a year ago and a simple sentiment and Christmas food is on the table.
