Mermaid Card

Click to Enlarge

Designer Tip: Stamp your images on scrap paper to create a mask, so that you can stamp images "behind" your focal image.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Place your card with the fold on top. Cover with Geometrics gray paper. Cut a 5" length of web ribbon in half, lengthwise, and glue to the upper and lower edges of your card.
  2. Stamp the oyster on scrap paper and cut out. Stamp the oyster and sand images at the lower edge of a 2"x3 1/2" cardstock, and the jellyfish at the top. Place the "mask" oyster over the stamped oyster and stamp the seaweed. Remove the mask. Use pens LG3 and CG4 for the greens, pens BP1 and CR2 for the pinks and a mix of both for the jellyfish, adding IB2 at the end of the jellyfish legs. Mat on Geometrics chevron paper with a 1/8" border, then on Geometrics yellow with a 1/16" border and foam tape 1/4" from the lower left corner of your card.
  3. Stamp the mermaid and the rock on scrap paper and cut out. Stamp the mermaid, rock and tall seaweed images at the lower edge of a 3"x3 5/8" cardstock. Place the "mask" mermaid and rock over the stamped mermaid and rock and stamp more seaweed. Remove the masks. Use pens LG3 and CG4 for the greens, pens TN4, GB4 and CR1 for the hair, GB1 for the rock and IB2 and BP1 for the seashells. Mat on Geometrics chevron paper with a 1/8" border, then on Geometrics yellow with a 1/16" border and foam tape 1/4" from the upper right corner of your card.
  4. Stamp "Hope your day..." on a 1 1/2"x7/8" cardstock and color in with various pens. Mat on Geometrics chevron paper with a 1/8" border, then on Geometrics yellow with a 1/16" border and foam tape as shown.
  5. Zot the matching Tin Pins on the oyster and mermaid, and Zot two small yellow grosgrain bows, as shown.
