Thankful Turtle

This little turtle guy is too cute! Image is from Very Thankful, which is the Ronald McDonald House of the Year stamp set. When you order the set, SU donates $2 to Ronald McDonald House Charities. I usually buy the RMHC stamp set every year, not only because it’s for a good cause, but they’re usually really cute! Last year’s was Say it with Scallops, which I used recently here.

Card base is Close to Cocoa, with a Crushed Curry textured cardstock layer that I scalloped with the Scallop Edge Punch. To give a little more interest, I paper pierced the scallops. The image is stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White. Then, I colored it in with SU Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen. The hearts were colored with Real Red Marker. The best part is the turtle shell–I applied 2 layers of Crystal Effects on the shell to make it shiny and raised. It’s difficult to see in the photo but the effect is cool!

I paper pierced the top and bottom edge of the Whisper White, layering it on Real Red and Striped Kraft card stock (from Taste of Textiles) with dimensionals. Along the bottom of the card, I inked up just the words from the stamp with Close to Cocoa Marker and stamped along the edge three times. A piece of Old Olive 5/8″ Grosgrain ribbon tied into a big knot around the Crushed Curry layer finishes off the card.
