Hi Friends! kel here today to share a fun card for a special mermaid!! And I totally took inspiration from a fellow KS teamie Caren… She made a beautiful rainbow flag card the other day and it made me think mermaid!!
I’m using the new Stitched Flag Dies to make this card. There are SEVEN different flags in this set… I used the 2nd smallest one to make my card. I knew I didn’t want to cover the whole card with my mermaid “scales” but didn’t want to go so big that there wouldn’t be a lot of layers on it.
This card was SO MUCH FUN. I wasn’t really looking forward to having to individually die cut all the flags but it ended up being pretty quick! I’ve had this shiny paper in my stash for at least a decade (sooooo not even kidding about that lol!) and thought it was the perfect pair for mermaid colors! I stamped out the sentiment using the Merman color from the Gazebo pack of the Lawn Fawn ink cube sets, and then added a splattering of sequins from the Mint Sparkles Sequin Mix to the top left corner. I wasn’t sure how the pink in the sequin mix would work with the purple in the card but I think it goes perfectly together. And I wanted it to look like a random sprinkle of sequins so I just kinda dumped it out on the card and then tried my best to just glue it down individually so I could keep the placement. Not easy to do using my fingers lol!! I think any of the pick-up tools from the Kat Scrappiness store would have made things a little bit easier for me!! Maybe next time lol!
I’m SOOOOOOO happy with how this card came out… it totally has that mermaid vibe going! Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon! Don’t forget to take part in our awesome monthly challenge for your chance to win a $25 Gift Card!!
