For the first card, I created a background with the wave border die included in the Mermaid For Each Other set. I cut it several times out of different shades of blue and teal patterned papers, that I arranged from lightest to darkest to achieve an ombre look. I also added some pink tulle behind the waves for texture, and machine-stitched everything in place to make sure it wouldn’t come undone.
For the title I used a sheet of Metallic Gold Poster Board that I made thicker and sturdier by adhering two more layers of heavy-weight cardstock to it.
The second card has a simpler design. I used the Sea Flower Die Set to create a focal point in the center of the panel.
The scalloped circle and sentiment are from the Get Well Soon Die Set by Marisa Job. As in the first card, I added pink tulle for texture, and adhered several layers of cardstock to the title to give it a bit of dimension. The flowers were also backed with patterned paper.
My last card is definitely the simplest of the three. Here I picked a dark background to make the Sea Flower die cut pop a bit more.
This die set comes with two images, so I cut both flowers from aqua/mint colored patterned paper, and backed them with the same pink paper I used in the previous card. I tied the “bouquet” with blue twine before adhering it down with foam adhesive, and finished the card with a simple sentiment.
And last but not least, a bonus card! For this one, I went with a more artsy approach and used the Washi Sheets to create a colorful panel.
I love the “believe and sparkle” sentiment, so I trimmed the washi paper to include it and make it the focus of my card. All the work here is done for you. I could have just left the card as is, since the mixed media background is so gorgeous, but I decided to add some fussy cut sea flowers, a shell, and some hearts. For those I used the Mertail, and the You Are Unique die sets.
