Turkey Tom Comes to Life

So I'm finally getting the hang of turning my clip art into die cuts :) There are two different methods that I'm testing out. The first involves a print and cut (as seen in a previous post) and the other involves cutting each piece out of colored paper and then putting the layers back together again. I like the layered look much better!

Check out the similarities between the digital illustration and it's die cut cousin:






The die cut is about 6" x 6" and has the potential to make an adorable place card for Thanksgiving dinner.  For now I'm going to make a few more as window decorations for the front door.

  2. I will be selling die cut files as soon as my website is ready :) I'm still in the beginning stages but I'm hoping that it's live by Jan. or Feb. I'll be sure to keep you posted when it's up and running!
