Can't Wait To Sea You

Hello friends!  I have a sweet seas horse card to share with you today.  I started with the Ocean Waves Background and cut the top layer in white, added a middle layer in aqua and added the bottom layer of Ocean card with a sticky adhesive sheet added to it.  I filled in the exposed adhesive with clear micro beads for texture.  I made a multi layered frame using Aqua card as the bottom layer then adding a wide white frame over it, then attaching them over my background.  I cut the large and small seahorses from the Can't Wait To Sea You set and inked them lightly Antique Linen.  I cut some sea grass and glued it under the lower lip of the frame.  I put the two large sea horses From the Can't Wait To Sea You set in the middle and used the sea grass to anchor the small seahorse which was cut from the Mermaid Kisses set.  I cut the sentiment out of Ocean card and glued it to the bottom of the frame.  White, aqua and Ocean mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size.

Don't forget, today is the day that I do the drawings for the winners of the Christmas blog launch.  I should have all of them finished and the winners posted online in the late afternoon.  Please don't forget to check back later to see if your name is on the list!  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue
I do like this fun card. I made a similar card for my fisherman brother for his birthday he was really impressed. Good luck everyone for later

Hi Sue. My first thought about today's 'picture' was decor, imagine a plain wall with a border made with this collection of underwater dies, or a wall painted by a real artistic enthusiast of an underwater mural with the little turtle and mermaids and all the other accessories within the collection or just pretty box framed pictures, this full collection of dies would bring so much pleasure to the little one's with a massive imagination. I DO love the countryside to see wildlife as it should be is just so beautiful even the tiny barn owls put a massive smile on my face, which I've never seen in their natural habitat before!
Hope your day is equally happy and full of smiles and sun xxx

Good morning Sue.
I really like the card you have made from this die but as I only make for family and friends I cannot justify a purchase. Actually I think I must put a brake on buying for a while and use some of the wonderful dies that I haven't yet opened. My intentions are one thing and my actions another. lol
Hope you are well and happy.
Hugs.

Hello Su
Such a shame it would be difficult to justify buying these dies as I really like your “seascape” cards.
They are so bright and cheerful! I love the background die uou have used on this die too!
