Turtle Friends

Turtle Friends, so fitting for another one of mine and Vicki's challenges... Vicki picked this cut... and I picked Friends after looking at the cut... I though "Those realistic turtles oh Vicki you have got to be kidding me!". but that is what makes it a challenge isn't it... then I found my paper...and knew the front facing turtle was sitting on the back of the side facing turtle and I got excited and went to work... I hope that you like it... it was such a fun card to do.

Disclaimer: My thief of a cat took my directions!!!... she always takes my craft supplies... I have no idea why!...but this time while my card was drying she took my directions ... so this is from memory...

Animal Kingdom
Side turtle cut at either 3 inches or 2 3/4 inches.
Front facing turtle cut @ either 2 inches or 1 3/2 inches.
I am thinking its the whole numbers but they are measuring the fraction numbers.
Grass cut @ 1 inch on real dial size... twice on layer feature for the front rows once on regular cut for the back row which I wish I had cut at 1 1/4 inch (the back row).
Corners cut at 2 1/4 inches on real dial size.
Inside corners cut @ 1 1/4 inches on real dial size.
Punched flowers w/Stickles for the centers.
