Hi there and welcome to CottageCutz Blog.
I love making handmade greeting cards and today I'm showing you my new card I created with beautiful dies.
Today I have a new card using die images from a new Summer 2015 release and an older. I used "Clown Fish", "Greenery" and "Vine" dies.
To make card, start by cutting orange and white card stock using the "Clown Fish" die. So, we have orange and white fishes. Don't trough away white pieces from cutting, we need these pieces late.
Adhere the orange fishes on black piece of card stock. One fish is normal way to adhere, the other one is reverse side. After all, place white pieces of fish in missing spots on orange fish. You can see details if you click on image.
Then, cut fishes around with scissors. We have beautiful Clown fishes with orange, white and black colors. Add clear shimmer on fishes for sparkling.
The next step is seaweed. Start by cutting green card stock using the Vine and Greenery dies.
To create a background, cut white cardstock using Circle die template and sponge ocean green, yellow and blue craft inks. Make the center area a bit lighter then edges by sponging yellow ink, then green and around circle with lt.blue craft inks. Next, stamp seaweed and corals using Md.brown ink.
The next step is putting all cut pieces to ocean circle using foam tape and craft glue.
Prepare a 3 3/4 by 5 1/2 inch white card base. Layer the ocean background with Tiny Bubbles embossed card stock and adhere to the card base with craft glue.
The final step, stamp sentiment in the bottom of card base using orange craft ink. You can use different sentiment, but I like this on. Embellish card with Clear Dew Drops and self adhesive small pearls.
