You Are Turtley Awesome

Hi Crafty Friends,

t's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Our challenge this week is to create a card using at least one die.

Apparently today is also Turtle Day, and as I had a turtle stamp set I purchased from Hero Arts sitting on my desk waiting to be played with I decided to incorporate that stamp set on my card today.

I have again be playing with my Alcohol Pearl inks I received at the end of last month. I am totally or should I say turtley in love with these inks. This time around I used the two blues and two green inks and Yupo cardstock on my panels so that they resembled grass & sky.

I then used Sunny Studio Stamps Dapper Diamonds Embossing Folder to emboss each of the panels and sanded the raised area to reveal some of the white.

I created a belly band and added on oval to create my turtle scene on the front of the card.

For the inside of the card I have used MFT Stamps Shutter Card Components die to create a Gatefold Shutter Card.

Here you can see when the card is partially open and the image in the top centre is only 
partly seen.

And one last photo of the front of the card with the belly band removed.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

This card is "turtle awesome"! My son has a huge collection of turtles and he would love this card. May have to order the set and copy you! Love, love, love it! (Well, I don't have the fancy fold cards, but hope I can get the stamps and dies for the turtles, etc.
