Very Thankful (and Very Cute) Turtle

I can’t decide which is cuter–this card or the one I made earlier. I had the idea to paper piece the turtle shell and raise it up with a dimensional or glue dot. It’s a great effect, especially with the paper pieced spots!

The image from Very Thankful was stamped twice: once on whisper white and once on Old Olive, both in Basic Black ink. I colored in the image on White with SU Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen. Then, I trimmed out the shell from the Old Olive card stock and adhered it to the stamped image with a thick glue dot. The spots on the turtle shell were made using the small hole of the Crop-a-dile and a regular office supply hole puncher. Crushed Curry and Kiwi Kiss were the colors I used for the spots.

I layered the image onto Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry. The card base is Kiwi Kiss, with a long panel of Striped Kraft running vertically down the front. Horizontally, I added a thick strip of Chocolate Chip layered with a thin strip of Real Red. On either side of the focal image, I added 2 White Jumbo Basic 5/16″ Brads.
