Swimming by… Birthday card

Hi everyone this is Mona back with a fun card featuring many of Kat Scrappiness’ new dies , sequins and stamp set.

I started off by stamping this lovely stamp from Honey Bee Swimming by  I love that you can use this set for many occasions.

Now that my image is cut out, I went ahead and die cut everything I needed. I started by cutting my card base at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 then folded it in half. I went through my stash of paper and found two wood grain prints . I took the lightest one and die cut it using the largest rectangle in Kat Scrappiness stitched rectangle dies.  I then adhered it to the front of the card.  I wanted to imitate a porthole, so I then proceeded by using a circle die from the new Never Ending Circle die set and die cut it in the front of my card. I then took that same circle and one that was two sizes bigger and carefully aligned them on my darker piece of woodgrain paper to create a frame for my window. Once everything was adhered to the front of my card I used some of Kat Scrappiness’ lovely sequins. I started by adding  4 dark silver from the Silver city mix   around the window, and used the  Sparkling clear droplets  to look like water drops.

For the inside of my card, I used the same rectangle shape as the front of the card and die cut several waves from the Waves border die set and randomly adhered them.  I finished off my card by carefully adhering my mermaid so she can peek out the window.

I hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial , thank you very much for stopping by. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to leave me a comment. Here is the link to Kat Scrappiness for your shopping convenience.
