Turtle card using Older & Wiser with Stampin' Up! set

I love this Older and Wiser stamp set!! Here I have used the layer fold technique and added some surprise layers. Sorry they are not in the correct order. The middle of the card is actually the last photo!! The card is 6 X 3. I used a quarter of the 12 X 12 textured In Color paper, Wild Wasabi Green. I love making the 6 X 3 cards. Four cards off one sheet of 12 X 12 !! I knew I wanted to use Wild Wasabi since I haven't used that color yet. Chocolate Chip seems to go with everything, and then I added Lavendar Lace because I NEVER use that color. I think the colors all worked out great together. I used the blender pen and re-inkers to color in the turtle. I used the Dilly Dally jumbo wheel with whisper white craft ink. Love that wheel. I need the thank you one now! The white accents on the chocolate chip cardstock and on the wild wasabi cardstock were done with the uniball white gel pen. The ribbon is the 1/4" chocolate chip grosgrain. Apparently not available anymore :( I also used some old eyelets that were actually green galore. I would use glorious green now if I had too. The holes were punched and the eyelets were set with the Crop-a-Dile. LOVE that tool! I also used Dazzling Diamonds glitter for some finishing touches.
I actually made two cards using this stamp. All of the accessories used were the same. Colors and all. I just changed the layout a little. I will post both. You will have to decided which you like best. I can't! I like them both.
Hope this post gives you guys ideas and inspires you!! Enjoy and as always, happy stamping!! Andi
