This card was sent to a young girl who collects turtle beanies…
So this cute card was just right.
To make this card I used the following punches –
2 1/2″ circle for the body (I had to use a circle framlit for the top of his shell), 3/4″ for his feet, 1/2″ for his spots
and 2″ x 1 3/4″ large oval for his head.
I sponged all the pieces and then glued his feet first at 12, 3, 6 & 9 o’clock to the underneath of the largest circle (garden green), then his head using dimensionals.
I glued all his spots (certainly celery) onto the 2nd largest circle (framelit) his shell and using dimensionals placed this onto the body.
His tails is part of an oval, cut into again by the punch to make moon shape.
You can see the structure of the turtle more clearly from the second picture.
To place the turtle onto your card (that I had already stamped a sentiment and placed a patterned strip of paper on), you will need dimensionals under each foot and body & glue for the head, as that will be flat to your card.
I finished off with some wobbly eyes, two punched out hearts and rhinestones.
It truly is easier than it sounds (it took me longer to write out the instructions, than it did to make the turtle!).
