Lemon Tart Rocks!

This is my first Pond Life card, and I'm really liking that set! The turtle is adorable, and you may have noticed that I really like dragonflies, so I immediately popped it in my cart on release day! And did I mention that I love Lemon Tart?

I did fiddle around with the dragonfly for a bit, though. I wanted to make the head the same color as the body with the wings different colors, so I kept trying different things. Then I just decided to cut the head out of a Berry Sorbet stamped dragonfly, and glue it on top! I also stamped the wings on velum, folded them up, and glued them down in the middle. I like how it turned out. I also popped up the turtle's head at the top, to make it look like he was looking around.

Did you see my "patterned paper"? I finally put to good use my Faux Ribbon set for something other than the sentiments! It took a small chunk of time, but I like the result. It makes for PP that's sure to match your card!

And now I'm off to get on with my day! I hope to have some stamping time later, though. Have a good one, and TGIF! :)



  1. This card is adorable! When I first looked at the card, I thought, where did she get that patterned paper? And lo and behold, you made it! Awesome! I have both of these sets and am definately going to CASE this card! Great job!

  2. Cute card, Kirsten! Love the patterned paper you made!

  3. SO darling I love the way you made your dp ...Love it.

  4. I love your card! I want the Pond Life set so bad and I love what you did with the "patterned paper".

  5. A-dorable!! my daughter wants me to buy this set for the turtle! she loves him!! and, this card is just perfect!

  6. WOW! Not for one second did I think you made that paper! Love that.

  7. Aaghh!! LOVE this Kirsten!! It's so bright and cheerful and would definitely be a pick me up!! Great job!

  8. I think you should let Candace know about these cards you made with her Pond Life Set. She'll be thrilled.

  9. I have a tortoise die cut and although I love it I've never used it as I couldn't think how to put it on a card. This is such a fab idea. I love the "slow down and get well soon" sentiment. Do you mind if I pinch it?


So what do you think?
