It's Donna here today to share with you an easel card. I am loving these cute fish and shell dies. The fish are called "Happy Fish 1 (blue) and Happy Fish 2 (yellow). They sure do look happy! I had so much fun creating this card....let's get started on how I created it.
This card is an easel card. The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 11 long. I scored at 4 1/4 and 2. I added my design paper and then created all the elements on the card. The sentiment was computer generated.
Here is a closer look at the fish

Here is started coloring the fish with copics. I love how the colors I choose they make the fish look so vibrant! After I finished coloring these, I used dimensional's to pop the fish on the circle.
I then colored the shells and then arranged them on the card. I popped up the beige color shell over the yellow one. I also used dimensional's on the green shell and used it to hold the fold up on the card.
I cut out the largest cross-stitched circle from the cross-stitched circle set. The paper is already embossed with water like lines, and I thought it would make the perfect water background. I used some distress inks to give the water an ombre look. After adding all the elements to the circle die I adhered it to the center of the easel card. To finish the card off, I added some bling to look like bubbles in the water. I also added some tiny bling to the fish eyes.
