Waving Hello

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. I continue to issue the challenge for the month of June.

Today is World Oceans Day, so for our challenge this week I asked the team to create something that reminds them of the ocean.

I had hoped to have had the new Lawn Fawn Waves add on that fits onto the Stitched Hillside Pop-Up die which is what I used to create my card. But as I couldn't use the waves I decided to use it anyway. 

I decorated my card using the Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You stamp set. I used my Scan N Cut to cut out all the images which made cutting so many images a breeze. Especially since I think I stamped almost every image in the set twice.

Here is a side view of my card so you can see the pop up part of the card a little better. I also found the sentiment in a freebie stamp set I received in a magazine recently.

For the front of the card I used the Stitched Hillside Pop Up die again to create the waves of my card. I hid the cut lines from the tab by placing some coral and weeds over them. The designer paper on the front of the card is a little bluer than that on the inside as the designer paper has an ombre look to it.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
