Hello my friends Ilda here,
It’s is finally looking like the snow is melting and Spring weather is on its way! I just can’t wait for it to warm up as maybe can tell by this Under the Sea Shaker card. Interactive cards are definitely one of my favorite kinds of cards to make and to give away.
To begin this card I stamped out images from the Mermaid For Each Other and the Under the Sea sets and then die cut them with their coordinating dies. They were colored in using Copic markers.
Next, I blended out some Distress Oxide Inks (tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon and wilted violet) onto a piece of Bristol paper. Then I used the Brush Stroke Waves stencil to add a layer of Glimmer Paste onto the background.
For the top panel, I used the Fancy Circle Dies to die cut the circle window and then used the frame from the Dotted Patterns Set 3 to cut out the panel. Next, I adhered a piece of acetate to the window opening and glued the water plants along the edge of the window. To the background, I glued the coral piece and the merman I popped up with a piece of foam tape. Not sure if you can tell from the photos but the mermaid was the only image I glued on the top of the acetate.
To create the shaker portion of the card I used foam tape and added it to the outside edge under the card front panel. Before attaching it to the background I added my sequin bits that consisted of Shimmering Ice Fusion Sequins and Sparkling Crystals to the center of where the window would be. I then removed the protective adhesive from the foam and lined it up with the background. I then attached that to a card base that I had glued a piece of light blue cardstock to. The sentiment I used on the card front comes from the Blooming Bunch Stamp set.
For a bit of sparkle on the images, I used Liquid Pixie Dust on the mermaid tails and the coral.
I hope you got some inspiration from this fun Under the Sea Shaker card. Oh, how I would love to be swimming in that magical ocean right now!
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
