Hello Everyone! Here is the card that I had planned to do Thursday on my live. If you suffer from Migraines like me you know there’s no way once those aura symptoms begin that a live tutorial would be coherent. But, even without a video tutorial I can still tell you how to make it. For this card I just started out with a Basic White card base in A2 size. All the paper I used and sizes can be found at the very bottom of this post.
Next I grabbed two panels of Designer Series paper from the Waves of the Ocean set. I used the more pinky one for the background and adhered that directly to the Basic White, and I used the blues for the foreground and took my large seascape die cut to create the coral and bubbles. I also cut some extra coral out of Bermuda bay and basic white with the other dies to add a bit of dimension. I used Stampin’ Seal to affix all of the coral layers making sure to weave some underneath the bubbles and coral on the foreground so that they hide in there a bit.
For my sentiment, I used the hexagon die from the abstract beauty suite and used Bermuda bay ink. I stamped our Jelly fish image in Bermuda Bay also and cut him out with the Seas the day bundle dies. To adhere the sentiment on, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the finishing touch on the front, I put a few adhesive backed hexagons.
The inside I kept really simple by using Bermuda Bay ink and stamping off our Octopus once. I then placed the “wishing you oceans of happiness” stamp over it in full strength Bermuda Bay so that you could see it more clearly. This was a fun and simple one to make. I was mostly just playing around with pretty ocean die cuts!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card! All measurements are found at the end of the post. Happy Stamping!
