Can't Wait To Sea You

Hello crafters!  I used some more pixies for the start of today's card.  I used Aubergine Dream, Plum Twist and Purple Twilght to create the background.  Next I cut the Underwater Life Frame in green, wine, tan, and gray,  I used the green one as the base and nipped away elements from the other colour of die cuts and glued them on top of the base piece.  I added the entire frame on to a white shadow backing and attached it to tthe background with mounting foam.  I cut the Can't Wait To Sea You in black and glued it to the upper left corner.  I cut the Scuba Diver out of slate gray card and attached him to a strip of acetate.  I folded the end of the acetate around the back of the background card and taped it, then allowed the scuba diver to float freely over the frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now,  Sue x

A great fun card with a fab play on words with the sentiment, however not totally sure on the whole concept - maybe the colours...

Hi Sue, this was not one of my favourites from the last launch but I do like the Underwater Life Frame and the added versatility of it being open topped.
