Playing in the Rain Unbounded Beauty Turtle Card

Friends, today I'm sharing a second card from the $15 Make & Takes I offer my Creative Cafe team members each month. Want to get in on the fun? Find out how here. 

In case you missed yesterday's card, it's here.

And here's today's card, with the adorable turtle:


To make this card, I started by using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the turtle and sentiment from the Playing in the Rain Stamp Set onto scraps of Basic White Cardstock. 

I coloured the turtle with Peach Pie, Shy Shamrock, and Pretty in Pink Stampin' Blends. Since I wanted the turtle's body to be significantly darker than the shell, I coloured the body twice with Dark Shy Shamrock. Since Stampin' Blends are alcohol-based (rather than water-based), it's possible to colour over the same area many times - it won't pill as there is no water involved.

I cut out the sentiment with Paper Snips Scissors, then used the Playing in the Rain Dies to cut out the turtle. I also die cut a large circle with Stylish Shapes Dies and a small label with Perennial Postage Dies. For both, I used the super-sparkly new 2024-2026 In Color™ Glimmer Specialty Paper in Peach Pie. Here's a look at this glittery paper:


To assemble, I used Stampin' Dimensionals™ to add a 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" panel of Unbounded Beauty DSP to a Basic White Note Card. 

I then wrapped a length of Pretty in Pink Bordered Ribbon around the panel, securing on the back with Mini Glue Dots™. I slipped a length of ribbon through the secured piece, tied, and trimmed.

To finish, I added all the cut-outs with Stampin' Dimensionals™. Then I embellished with Adhesive-Backed Sequins Trio.
