Hi folks. It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.
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!
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
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. I thought I'd make a cute thank you card for the treat of a trip to the beach!
As an alternative, I created a different sentiment as a friendship card.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and I look forward to sharing another with you next time. In the meantime, come and visit me at Katydid Cards if you get the chance.
Before I leave you, I want to remind you about our monthly
challenge ( the theme is Swim, Beach, Ocean) you still have time to
