Turtle Friends Spotlight #2

Wouldn't this card be fun to send to a girlfriend?  I often need a belated card so this is a perfect design to make a few extras to have on hand. 

The colorful Hand Penned designer series paper is so bright and airy and a fun contrast to this plucky turtle.

I hope this card inspires you and that you will enjoy making this at home.  The tutorial is below and the supply list is at the end of this post.  Products are available while supplies are available, so don't be a slow turtle, be sure to order what you like!


Misty Moonlight

Highland Heather

Fresh Freesia

Old Olive

Basic White


Complete list of supplies needed is listed below. A die cutting machine is needed for this card.

Basic White Thick Cardstock:

  • 5 1/2” h x 8 1/2" w folded to 4 1/4” w for Card Base

  • 3” square scrap for Turtle Punch

Basic White Cardstock:

  • 4 1/2" h x 3 1/4" w for embossed layer

Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper:

  • 3” square scrap for Turtle Shell


  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.

  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.

  3. Run the 4 1/2" h x 3 1/4" w basic White through the Die Cut & Emboss machine with the Dots embossing folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders pack. 

  4. Wrap two strands of the Misty Moonlight Baker’s Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Trim Combo pack around the Embossed Layer, add a small piece of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon and tie a knot.  

  5. On 3” square Basic White Thick scrap stamp the Large Turtle with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Color head, neck, feet and tail with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends using light on body and dark on toes and use Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend for the eye,  then punch out with the Turtle Punch. 

  6. On 3” square Hand-Penned DSP scrap stamp the Large Turtle with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Use Paper Snips to fussy cut the Shell, cutting just inside the line. Attach to Turtle with Multipurpose Liquid Glue so you can wiggle it into position.

  7. Attach to the Embossed Layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  8. Attach Embossed Layer to Card Base with Stampin Dimensionals. 

  9. Stamp the Sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink on the 3/4" h x 3 1/4" w Basic White piece and then trim the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
