I wanted to use the new Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea collection to make a Father's Day card. Beginning with a 6" x 6" black card stock base, die cut a fancy border along the bottom with one of the Regal Borders and Pockets dies. Using one of the 6" x 6" panels from the Under the Sea Paper collection, die cut the upper matching border along the bottom edge then trim to 5 3/4" wide by 4 1/2" high and mount onto your card stock base. Using Memento Tuxedo black ink and Cryogen metallic paper; stamp the coral from the Under the Sea Coral stamp set and die cut with the matching die from the Under the Sea Coral die set; stamp the shell and porthole from the Coral Reef Collage stamp set and die cut with the matching dies from the Coral Reef Collage die set. Die cut the little fish from the center of the port hole die cut. Copic markers used: Conch shell - E11, E13, E51; Porthole - C2, C4, E13, G02; Fish - YR16, YR18, R29, BG72; Coral - R43. Find the port hole on the patterned paper in the paper collection and trim out the center area. Glue the colored fish over the one on the paper. Die cut 5 additional port holes from black card stock, gluing them on top of each other to form sides for a shaker. Add a piece of acetate behind the colored port hole, then glue down to the stacked port holes. Add some Blue Micro Glass beads; attach the back panel and then attach to card base. Add two stacked dimensional foam pieces behind the center top of the conch shell, then pull the sides down and glue to your card base. Add the coral behind the conch shell. Stamp Happy Father's Day from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set onto Cryogen metallic paper; matting it with black card stock and adhering to the card base with dimensional foam. Add Crystal Ice Stickles to the shell and coral for some bling.
For the inside of the card, using the bottom die of the previously used Regal Border; die cut the decorative edge onto the 5 3/4" square patterned "There is only one like you" paper. Adhere to the card base. Using another border from the Regal Borders and Pockets die set, create a decorative border using the left over paper from the card front. Using Memento Tuxedo black ink and Cryogen metallic paper, stamp the seahorse from the Under the Sea Stamp set, cutting it out with the die from the matching Under the Sea die set. Copics used: B63, B66, BG32, BG34, R43, YR21, BG72 Add a sentiment panel matted with black card stock; mounting the seahorse just to the right.
When the card is closed, you can see the decorative paper from the inside of the card through the gorgeous scroll work.
