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.
