Craft Along with Spellbinder’s Crafty Advent Calendar Day 6

Hello everyone! Do you love critter dies as much as I do? Well have a look at this sweetie revealed in Day 6 of Spellbinder's Crafty Advent Calendar! How adorable is this turtle accompanied with balloon and string dies?! What a fabulous advent calendar. I am loving these daily surprises.

Be sure to check out the VIDEO TUTORIAL!

  • There are a number of dies to complete the turtle. They were cut from chartreuse and dark green card stock with a a bit of white and black for the eye.

  • The turtle is easily assembled. Detailed instructions are available in the video tutorial. Black sheet foam was cut with the body die and the turtle was adhered to it.

  • The die set is accompanied by balloon and string dies. The string was cut from gold glitter card stock and the balloon was cut three times from different shades of pink and white foam. The balloons were adhered to the foam die cuts with the end of the strings sandwiched in between.

  • Two consecutive dies from the Essential Stylish Ovals die set were used to cut gold glitter and dark green card stock. The ovals were adhered together.

  • A 4" by 5 1/4" panel of dark green card stock was embossed with the Argyle Socks Embossing Folder. It was adhered to an A2 sized, black card base.

  • The ovals were mounted on the card front.

  • The foam backed balloons were adhered to the oval criss crossing the end of the strings. The foam backed turtle was mounted over the string ends.

  • The shadow die for the sentiment from Everyday Sentiments was cut from both foam and pink card stock. The card stock shadow die cut was adhered to the foam and the scripty die cut from gold glitter card stock was attached. The sentiment words were adhered to the top and bottom of the ovals.

  • The turtle's eye and the balloons were coated with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
