“Sea”ing You Makes Me Smile!


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week Andrea Murdock continues to bring us the challenges for July.

For our challenge this week Andrea has challenged us with the theme … Marine Life! Let’s see your Aquatic themed cards.

You have all probably figured by now that I LOVE Karen Burniston’s Pop N Cuts dies by Sizzix so this week I decided to use these to create my card. This was a fun card to create Smile.

On the outside of my card I have used the Mermaid from The Greeting Farm, it is one I have had in my stash for ages. I used the La La Land Crafts Palm Tree to create the seaweed behind the mermaid …. I die cut the palm tree twice and placed it on either side of her. The sentiment is one from Rubbernecker.


Here is the inside of my card. As you can see I created an underwater scene using the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Circle Label insert as the base. I again used the mermaid and the palm tree for the seaweed behind the mermaid.


As you can see in the photo above … I have added a floating floor to my card so I could have the fish and clam in the front of the mermaid also pop up … You can find the template for the Floating Floor on Karen Burniston’s blog … she also has a You Tube video explaining how to do this … it is very easy to do.

All the fish and sentiment used on the inside are by Rubbernecker.
