I Sea It's Your Birthday ~ Craftin Desert Divas Daily Post

Hi there! Today is my day to share over on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog.

I am sharing a little Under the Sea inspiration.

I love how many of the Craftin Desert Divas products work together!

Today my card features 3 different CDD stamp sets. 

Have a look:

Isn't this fun!

I knew I wanted to make a shaker card and at first I had envisioned putting all of my images inside. As you can see, I changed my mind as all of the elements came together. 

I started by inking up a cardstock panel with Distress ink. To create my sea I used Distress Ink in the following colors starting at the bottom: Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio. I sprinkled some water droplets here and there to make it look even more like the ocean. Once I was happy with how it looked I used the Fancy Frame Dies to give my panel a pretty edge.

Using my Fuse tool I created a pocket and slipped that panel inside.

To the front I added images from CDD Magical Wishes stamps, Under the Sea stamps, and Enchanted Tales. These were all colored with Copic markers. The sand was die cut with CDD Outdoor Landscape Dies and attached to the bottom.

I heat embossed my sentiment and wrapped it around the card front. I was so glad I had some blue vellum! 

To complete my card I added some Skyfall Sequins to my pocket and tied some Baker's Twine to the top of the card.

Thank you for joining me today!
