Hello friends! Did you know the American Tortoise Rescue started marking World Turtle Day in 2001? I didn’t either!! In Australia, we’ve the 1 Million Turtles program and it supports initiatives to conserve threatened freshwater turtle species – so worthwhile! I decided to design a card card to celebrate these amazing reptiles 🙂 :
Each paper sheet measure 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) and I cut this one into 3 pieces measuring 2″ x 3″ (5 x 7.6 cm) and 2 pieces measuring 1 1/2″ x 6″ (3.8 x 15.2 cm):
This Seabed Embossing Folder (retired) makes an ideal background for the turtles:
You can see here that I’ve used the wider double sided tape on the cardstock. This is to make sure that the embossed layer stays stuck down!
MEANWHILE … I’m busy keeping up with the ‘Card a Day in May’ challenge! On the 15th, I embossed a set of cat cards using these colours (they’re on a bag I own!!):
As always, thank you so much for spending time with me and if you have any questions about this card, please ask, and have a wonderful week! Megan xo
