For my card today I have used four of the new dies to create my "Sea/Ocean" themed card. First up is the Little Twist Panel Pop-up die set which is very easy to use and works with most sizes of cards included Slimline and Mini Slimline cards. Have already shared a Mini Slimline and 5 X 7 version using this die on my blog yesterday and last week, so scroll down if you missed those cards.   I added two of the "little twist panel pop up's" this time, seeing I was creating a slimline card. I hid the mechanism base of the "little twist panel pop-up" underneath the patterned paper, I cut two strips of patterned paper about 1 inches wide which I adhered close to the fold before adding the mechanism, and then once the two pop up mechanisms were in place, I added the remainder of the paper lining up the pattern as close as I could.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

To decorate my card I used the Seas Charms (the animals and shells on the Little Twist Panel Pop-up mechanism) and Beach Borders (the tiny crabs and sharks) die sets along with two previously released die sets ...  Sea Animals and Ocean Animals die sets. I love that the Beach Borders can be used as a border, or cut apart as needed for your card, making them perfect for any sized card. I cut mine apart putting them in groups of 1, 2 or 3 images. In the bottom left hand corner of the card, I added the anchor which is from the Cruise Charms die set.

To finish off the inside of the card, I added a stamped sentiment to the top portion of the card.

I kept the front of the card simple, seeing the focus is on the inside of the card. I added the same patterned paper I used on the front.

I added two different sized crabs, the smaller from the Sea Charms die set and the larger one from the Sea Animals die set. The Octopus is from the Ocean Animals die set.

For the sentiment, I used the new Rectangles and Labels Crosshatch die set, using two of the label dies included in the set. As I was limited on space, I cut the label down slightly. I used the Mini Alphabet and Numbers to add the word "See" the rest is from a stamp set.

Well that's about it from me today, thank you for dropping by. To continue on the blog hop, click on the next person on the list, which is  Suzanne Smit

Ok, you now made me have to have this pop-up die set. I like how you used the paper for the background so you can save some work to use for the pop-ups.
