Isn’t this turtle adorable? I created this card for the Inkadinkado Product Review a while back. I stamped the Turtle in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Watercolor paper and colored her with Aqua Painter and Inkadinkado Watercolor Markers.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. A 3 3/4″ piece of Weathervane October Afternoon Paper was sanded and stitched on a 3 15/16″ square of Whisper White cardstock. The next layer is another piece of Weathervane October Afternoon Paper. It was cut with Square Nestabilities.

A 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ piece of October Afternoon paperwas sanded and then stitched to white piece of cardstock strip, that had been cut with Scalloped Scallop Die-namic die. Pink Silk Ribbon was tied around the layers and topped with a Basic Grey button.  I cut a 1/2″ circle with Circle Nestabilities out of Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored the inside of the circle with the sky blue watercolor Marker. The turtle was taped over the circle with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Verve’s Bountiful Backgrounds. I love the backgrounds in the set, but I love the sentiments and the fonts they are written in even more. The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top left of the scalloped paper square. Three pink Kaisercraft Rhinestones were added to the top right of that square to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
