Who could resist this adorable sea turtle? He swam onto my card before I could stop him, and I let him stay.
Prior to the sea turtle’s arrival, I painted lines across the middle of Basic White Cardstock (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) with Stampin’ Blends in five colors: Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Shaded Spruce, Just Jade, and Bermuda Bay.
Next, I used a Whale Done stamp to add some dots in Pool Party Ink, and some in gold that I heat embossed. Then, I used the Largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting. Using the same die, with the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die, I cut a frame from Brushed Metallic Cardstock. While cutting, I placed the dies together, and I have a nice center section, saved for another card.
After gluing the frame to my white layer, I glued my art piece to a Just Jade card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. And, that’s when the sea turtle appeared. I have to blame myself, because I cut him free from the Whale Of A Time Designer Paper, and Dimensionals were close by.
Fortunately, he was a very polite sea turtle, and wished to say “thank you,” which I found in the Special Someone Stamp Set. I stamped it in Just Jade Ink, and used the Special Day bubble die for cutting. He wanted to make sure everyone could see he was speaking, so I brushed the edges of the bubble with a Sponge Dauber and Just Jade Ink.
The sea turtle thought we needed more sparkle, so I obliged by adding some Whale Of A Time Sequins. Oops, they aren’t in my Product List, and if you need them, they are #152461.
Here is this week’s Global Design Project sketch, so you can see how this was my inspiration. I hope that you are inspired, as well, and will create a card that you’ll post in our gallery.
