Hello crafty friends! I’m so excited to show you one of the new Kat Scrappiness die sets for the July release. The new Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set is so fun and versatile. Just wait until you see all the beautiful cards the design team has in store for you. I combined them with the Heffy Doodle Oceans of Love because Heffy Doodle is new to the Kat Scrappiness store.
The inspiration for this card was creating an aquarium shaker card. The large three paneled die worked perfect for this visual. I wanted to add some fun color so I picked my sequins first and let that guide my other color choices. I went with the Mint Sparkles mix from Kat Scrappiness and then used Distress Oxide Inks to create my colored papers. I have a full video tutorial for you today that you can watch below or on YouTube.
At first I thought I would color my narwhal in true colors, but then considering the sentiment I decided to have a bit of fun and make the narwhal pink and the other animals true colors so it would really pop. I also made sure the narwhal was adhered directed to the front so the sequins would shake behind it and not distract from the star of the card.
