Love these turtle cards inspired by Frenchie! These cards are made with a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock, scored at the 4 1/4″ mark. Cut a shell, 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ square and emboss it with the NEW Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The first sample is Always Artichoke and the second is Crumb Cake. To create the legs, fold card and using your envelope punch board and punch at 1″ and 3 1/4″ on all four sides. Repeat on the shell and then cut the legs off. Sponge with desired colors: I used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Expresso and Always Artichoke. Have fun and play with color combos.
The head is the bell punch with the knob cut off and the tail is the Classic Label Punch. I had so much fun making these turtle cards, I made 15 in all and shared them with my HandiCrafters and our Dessert Night this week. I experimented a bit more and Clear Embossed the shell on some of the turtles, after all, turtles do have a shiny, hard shell. They were a hit! My next job is to create a detailed photo tutorial.
