Happy Birthday by Kenya

Hi All!

My friend is having a birthday soon and when I saw the Turkey file, I could not resist! I knew I had to use it for his card! Isn’t it the cutest turkey ever?

Although the turkey is adorable, it can still be used for masculine projects! I decided to use the embossing tool instead of cutting the layers of the Turkey. Didn’t it turn out great? When you emboss, remember to mirror your image. I put the foil face down so the debossing was on the top. You must be very careful when lifting the foil or you may end up with unwanted creases and you can ruin your embossed images (if you are using foil).

The sentiment was stamped and then (wet) embossed. For the corners, I used a corner punch. I like this particular punch for masculine projects for some reason. To man the card up a little more, I added brads to the corners.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Don’t forget to go to for your embossing tool and embossing mat. I know you will enjoy using them as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by, Kenya~

* You can emboss on paper, cardstock, aluminum and more; adjust your force depending on the material you are embossing.*
