Sea Turtle and Seaside Wishes

Ready for another Festive Friday challenge?   What is the Festive Friday challenge?  The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity.  An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration.  To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery.  We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and look forward to seeing what you create.


I chose from the Inspo List-Masculine Colors, Fancy Fold, and Thanks Sentiment.


From this picture it is hard to see the fun fold and maybe even the thanks sentiment.  It will get clearer soon.

  • Misty Moonlight card base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4".  Starting at the fold measure in from the edge 1-1/4" and cut down to the edge. Repeat on the other side. 
  • Window Sheet 1" x 4-1/2" attach it to the "arms".  These will connect the 2 arms and will be covered with Basic White CS and DSP.
  • Basic White CS layers cut 2 at 1-1/8" x  4-1/8" and 1 at 2-7/8" x 4-1/8"
  • Thoughtful Journey DSP (cut 1 ) 1" x 4" , then 2-3/4" x 4", and another 1" x 4".  Cut it in sequence so the pattern on the DSP looks continous.
  • Old Olive CS stamped in Mossy Meadow ink with the large turtle.  Fussy cut the turtle and attach it to the "arms" . 
  • Basic White CS cut with Stylish Shapes dies stamped with a sentiment from Seaside Wishes in Misty Moonlight ink.


  • Small turtle stamped in Old Olive ink on Old Olive CS and fussy cut.  
  • Sand dollar stamped in Basic Beige ink on Basic White CS and fussy cut.
  • Starfish stamped in Calypso Coral ink on Peach Pie CS and fussy cut out.
  • Pebbles are from a retired embellishment-Pebbles Enamel Shapes.


  • Basic White CS 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Thoughtful Journey DSP strip.
  • Sentiment from My Small Business inked in Misty Moonlight ink.

Be sure to check out how the rest of the Festive Friday Design team was inspired by the Inspo List.

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your project in the Festive Friday gallery!
