Happy Friday and start of the long weekend! I don’t think I’m going to have much crafty time, but I plan on finishing an interesting book that I started a few days ago, along with one that I’ve been making really slow progress on! In other news, y’all I made my first card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge!
I pair an older stamp set, fintastic friends with the newly released, giant happy birthday die. I loved the die so much during reveal week, that I was up bright and early at my local craft store, Room to Craft to pick it up!
To create this card, I started by stamping all the fish images from the fintastic friends stamp set, and colored them with copic markers. I don’t have the coordinating dies, so I fussy cut them out. Next I die cut the giant happy birthday twice, once from a teal-blue card stock and once from black to create a shadow.
Next to create the “scene” I inked up some Bristol Smooth Cardstock with blue and brown ink. I added splatters of water, and black and brown paint to add some dimension. I die cut the brown inked card stock with the Stitched Waves Dies and adhered it to the blue inked background with foam tape to add dimension. Next I offset the two word die cuts and adhered them using a bit of foam tape and some glue so that it was the same height as the ‘sand’. Lastly I scattered the fish images all over the card, along with some jewels to match.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great weekend and happy 4th!
