All Occasion Card | Pink & Main - Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog - "Be A Mermaid


I'm so excited to be up on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Blog with a special inspiration project featuring the "Be A Mermaid" Stamp/Die Sets from Pink & Main's June Release! These adorable mermaids (and their underwater companions) are beautifully drawn and a perfect match for the punny sentiments! I've got lots of great crafty tips for card construction over on the SCT Blog Post so be sure to check it out!

I kept the card front simple since the star of this design takes place inside and the softly ink blended A2-sized sky is a nice counterpoint to the ink smooshed, embossed ("Catch A Wave" Embossing Folderpanel! However, I did add just a bit of bling with the gorgeous "Vitamin Sea" Glitter Enamel Dots!

The interactive design on the inside is very simple and uses a 1" mountain fold in the middle, which gives you a spot to attach images with an acetate strip - like the mermaid on the right! Here are the measurements for the inside panel:

I stamped, watercolored and die cut all of the images. To add just a bit more texture to the underwater scene, I created additional aquatic plants with glitter paper using the berry stem die from the "Wreath Base 2 Die Set". I layered these die cuts pieces in with the sea kelp images to create my ocean garden and then adhered my other images in place! I stamped the sentiment using the MISTI and added the swimming mermaid to the left side of the mountain fold with a small strip of acetate. I love how it really looks like she's swimming in the water! All that was left was to attach the card front onto this interior piece to finish things up! Here's a good view which shows the way the mountain fold works and this card looks great standing upright on display!

Be sure to head over to the Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog Post for lots of additional tips and tricks for this card! Thanks so much for stopping by!
