Attach the punched turtle to the lower edge of the card front. Attach the shell over the turtle with dimensionals.
Stamp sentiment with Granny Apple Green ink on Basic White. Punch out with Label Me Fancy punch. Punch a piece of Granny Apple Green with Everyday Label punch. Attach the Granny Apple Green punched piece to the upper portion of the card front. Attach the punched stamped sentiment to the Apple Green punched piece with dimensionals.
