Happy Friday my “Jawsome” friends!
Yah, I really can’t help it, I am going to be a bit punny with my card today. This Jawsome stamp set is filled with so many punnies perfect for so many occasions. But today I’m using it to share a fun birthday card I made for my little cousin. I’m kinda kicking myself because the shark on the surfboard is on a wobbler and I didn’t get a clip of it in action 🙁 So you will have to take my word for it it is SO Sharktastic, lol!
Next, I created the pieces for the background. On Bristol paper, I blended out the sun rays for the sky using the UNDERWATER SUN RAYS using mustard seed distress oxide ink, then die cut the panel with the dotted frame from the DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3 DIES.
For the ocean background, I blended out salty ocean oxide ink onto Bristol paper and once a base of color was applied I added the waves in by blending out another layer of color using the BRUSH STROKE WAVES STENCIL. To add a little more interest to the water I spritzed the piece with some water drops and picked them up with a paper towel. I then die cut waves into the ocean by using the TRIMMINGS BORDERS CREATIVE DIE and then die cut the dotted bottom edge and the sides to line up with the Sun Rays panel using the same DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3 DIES.
Now that all the pieces were done, I assembled the card onto a top folding A2 sized card front. I started by gluing on the sun rays piece first, and then the middle wave piece and lastly, the bottom wave popped up using foam tape. At this point, I stamped on the sentiment to the top of the card front using a stamp positioner. Finally, I glued the sharks as shown in the water, but for the shark on the right I first glued him to the surfboard (don’t look to closely or you will see that he is actually on the bottom of it, I was trying to cover up the bite mark from the board, haha) and then I attached the glued surfing shark to an action wobbler to add an interactive element for the recipient. I then finished the card by adding some clear CLEAR ROUND DROPS MIX.
On the inside, I had stamped the sentiment “have a JAWSOME birthday” but forgot to photograph it 🙁
For a complete supply list of all the products, I used today stop over on my BLOG.
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out this SHARK-TASTIC card today, until next time stay JAWSOME my friends 😉
