If you liked yesterday’s card, you will also love this funny handmade slimline card with more funny fish!
Yesterday we shared an under the sea card with with a tongue in cheek twist and today we are sharing another funny handmade slimline card with more sea creatures! Annie just couldn’t stop making these adorable fish so she made a second slimline card so she could add them all together. Let’s “dive in”!
Just like with yesterday’s project, Annie started by stamping her fish from our new Under The Sea #2 stamp set onto white card stock with black Copic-friendly ink, colored them up with her Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
She also die cut some scraps of white card stock with our Sea Kelp and Seaweed/Coral die and colored them also with her Copic markers. She let them play together while she made her card layers.
She trimmed a piece of white card stock to just under 3″ X 8″ (to allow the edges to be well hidden below the frame die cut she uses later). She randomly blended Beachside, Whisper, Dreamer and Cedar inks all from Color Fuse Set #9 over this panel. She then cut a card stock scrap with our Slimline OPC (One Piece Cut) Fish Scales die and using the die cut as a stencil, she placed it over her inked panel and blended the same inks, again randomly, over the stencil for a gorgeous tone on tone effect that looks a LOT like water!
Annie then cut kraft card stock with our OPC Squares die and using it as a guide, decided where to stamp her sentiment in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white powder to look like the foam from the waves.
Now she built her card by adhering the ink blended panel to a dark blue card stock layer and then popped those onto her card base, all using a tape runner. She then added her kraft squares frame over the top with some foam tape.
Now she began arranging and sticking down her seaweed and coral and kelp with liquid glue and then her fishie friends with more dimensional adhesive. All that was left were some iridescent teal rhinestones for some glimmer and this card was ready to go!
We think this funny handmade slimline card would be perfect for lots of different occasions and we would love to see what YOU make with this idea or the one from yesterday. Be sure to share your creations on our Facebook page so we can be inspired by YOU!
