Under the Sea, Stampin’ Up

I know ,I know, now that Little Mermaid song is playing in your head……but you’re SMILING aren’t you;-) This is such a cute card, great for little friends birthdays, or happy vacation cards, retirement, new beach house…..gosh the list could go on!

The video on this card gives LOTS of extra tips, but I also want to take time to note the specific colors I used on the different sea creatures. You could also use my favorite tool……the brayer, on the background of this card instead of sponging it. Andddddd, another suggestion to shimmer up your card: you could attach all of your sea friends directly to the card, go over the whole thing with Versamark, cover with clear embossing powder, heat, and give the entire card some sparkle!
