You're Turtley Awesome..
Hi there! Today on the blog, I have this adorable fall themed turtle card. This card measures 5 x 7. I used Bazzill and Recollections card stock for my paper piecing and as the base of my card. The patterned paper is from Lilybee Designs.
My cute little turtle friend is a file pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs which you can find here: http://www.littlescrapsofheavendesigns.com/category_22/Weekly-Freebie.htm. Please understand that he is currently listed as the weekly freebie right now. I do not know how much longer he will be available as a freebie though.
I used my Cricut Explore to upload the file and cut him out. I then chalked each piece before putting him together. I wanted to make him different somehow and I thought it would be a cute idea to make a "shaker" out of his pumpkin shell. I used an oval punch to create the cut out and then adhered acetate and foam dots. I used a mixture of sequins that I had from Craftin' Desert Diva's and Stampin' Up! After my shaker was formed, I then added two small leaf embellishments (also ReCollections) and a small orange button for an added touch.
Now onto my sentiment..... I used the Natural Tag & Twine Kit from Recollections to created my sentiment tag. And thankfully, I have the Totally Turtle Stamp Set from Craftin' Desert Diva's which you can find here: http://craftindesertdivas.com/totally-turtle/
It was lots of fun making this card. Hope you all enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by!!
