Hi, I have one last card to share using the Magical Mermaid stamp set. I used another mermaid I had coloured when practising with the new Stampin’ Blends (coming November 1, 2017 – yay!). I was experimenting with colours – don’t you think she looks great in a pink colourway?! I also wanted to pop her up and have her look back to the sentiment.
In order to allow the greeting to show through from behind, I cut out a circle from the Pool Party Cardstock. I then placed this cardstock into the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot. This is definitely one of my favourite embossing folders.
I made some light pencil marks to the card base so I could see where my stamping needed to go. I stamped the sentiment and the seaweed in this space.
I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the embossed cardstock and this piece to the card base. I popped up the mermaid but the card didn’t seem quite finished. I added some bling (rhinestones) but it still needed one more thing and this is when I realised the starfish (from one of the other sentiments in the set) would be the finishing touch.
Here’s the card…
I think this card would be great as a shaker card…hmm…that’s an idea! Maybe it won’t be the last time you see this stamp set this year. 🙂
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount or wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to both.
