Back on Your Feet, Get Well Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I saw this set in the new catalog and I knew I just had to have it.  It did not come with dies so the cost was less than those that do.  There's two other animals in the set and I can't wait to play with them either.  But I thought I would start with the turtle because I wanted to play with green today.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Old Olive card stock and textured it with the new "Eyelet Lace" embossing folder.  Cute, isn't it?  I taped that to the card base.

I cut a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Regals 6" x 6" package.  You get 40 sheets in those packages.  Such a great deal.  I taped the DSP strip to a 1-3/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  And I taped the strip on top of the "Eyelet Lace" piece.

Next I stamped the turtle from the "Back on Your Feet" set using black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock.  I colored him in using Blends pens.  I used Old Olive, light and dark and Crumb Cake light.  I also added a little bit of light Smoky Slate to the bottom shadow area of the turtle back. I die cut it with the second largest square stitched die.  Then I die cut a scalloped square from Crumb Cake card stock.  I taped the two squares together and I set them in place using Dimensionals.  

The words are from the same set and I stamped them using black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock.  I die cut them with an oval die and I also die cut a scalloped oval from a scrap piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I taped the two ovals together and I set them in place using Dimensionals.  

I colored some rhinestones using the dark Granny Apple Green Blends pen and I set them in place on the card front.

For the final touch, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock on the inside and the card was done.

I think it's adorable.  I may make a couple more to sell in my web store.  I was asked if I ever sell my cards and I usually just sell some at a craft fair but I think I'll start putting some in my store. I'll post it on here when I add one.  And I'll even post a link to make it easier to access it.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
