Turtley Awesome at Sunsational Stamps

The theme this week at Sunsational Stamps is Swim/Beach/Ocean.   I used the Ocean Critters 2 to make my card and, as the title of this post implies, I think this l’il guy is turtley awesome!

For something a bit different, I decided I would paper piece my image rather than color it and I think he’s pretty happy with how he looks.  To accomplish this in my Silhouette design screen, I traced around the outside of the image and filled it with digital patterned paper from a Green/Purple Plaid collection.  This was the bottom layer which I printed on the circle over  a wave border I made and colored in semi-transparent purple.  I also created the greeting using the text to path option.

I printed the turtle three additional times; once plain white and two more times with different plaids and fussy cut the pieces.  The focal image was placed on a larger mat cut from scrap.  Another plaid from the collection was used for the panels, which I placed on a base of Green Galore card stock.  Here’s another look from the side.

On the reverse I placed the patterned paper panels just on the two outer flaps with my matted sentiment in the middle.

As an alternative, I created a different sentiment as a friendship card.

Before I leave you, I wanted to share some good news I received.  My “For All You Do” card was picked as a Favorite of the Week at Splitcoaststampers.  I was thrilled at the news.

    So cute. I love plaids and green, so this is perfect. I am always glad when I can use my Explore and don’t have to fussy cut things, but you did a great job..
