The card on the left of Page 56 was my choice:
The basic card is a base of Granny Apple Green cardstock. I've added a Basic White shape using the Tasteful Labels Dies. Attached to this was a piece of Expressions in Ink Specialty DSP.
A turtle shape was stamped in Black Memento ink onto Basic White cardstock and a shell of Granny Apple Green was added. This was punched out with the Turtle Punch. I inked the bird in Pale Papaya and placed the turtle where I wanted it to end then removed it to stamp the bird in place before adhering the turle. The greeting from Turtle Friends was stamped in Granny Apple Green onto Pale Papaya cardstock and attached to the card with a Baker's Twine bow to finish.
To step it up, I've added another layer of Granny Apple Green cardstock to the base after embossing it with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I've also embossed the Tasted Labels diecut after it has been stamped with the bird using Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, matted the greeting with Whisper White, switched out the Baker's Twine bow for a White Crinkled Seam Binding double bow and added some Sequins for Everything
