I Sea It's Your Birthday Mini Tower Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Mid last year I created a Double Tower Card which was lots of fun to make. Early in December Sam from Mixed Up Crafts posted a Mini Tower version which I have been wanting to try. I finally found some time to play.

For my card today I used some new stamps from Craftin Desert Divas which I purchased online during the Black Friday Sales. I had been debating for a while about getting some of their stamps and with 40% off it was a no brainer.

For the ocean background I used Honey Bee Stamps Ocean Borders stamp set, stamping it onto white cardstock using VersaMark ink and embossing using White Embossing Powder. I then sponged on various blue Distress Oxide Inks over the background.

Along the bottom of the main panel I added the ocean bed which was created using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders die set.

To finish off the card I added some clear jewels randomly over the card.

Here is another view of the card, this time when it is lying on the desk. Hopefully you can see the side panels a little better,  it was hard to photograph this so you can see the beauty of this card.

On the back of the card I added a white panel to add a sentiment and a couple of the images from the stamp set used on the front of the card.

I have not seen this card type before. Any way to get the instructions for cutting. I'm ready for a new style. Looks like a lot of fun.
