Love You To The Beach And Back

Hello crafters!  I have a clean and simple card to share today.  I selected a piece of white card and used the Turquoise Cascade Pearlescent watercolour ink acrosd it.  I cut three sea turtles from the Under The Sea Creatures die set out of tan card.  I cut the tutle die a second time out of dark green .  I nipped away the shells on each of the them, then glued it on top of the tan turtle dies.  I added all three with foam across the card.  I cut the Love You sentiment and the To The Beach And Back sentiment and glued them to the top and bottom portions of the card.  The card was compleed with white mats and layers.  The finshed dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. This card shows how you can use quite a simple technique to create a really effective card. I think the background would work perfectly with any underwater scene and the turtles show this so well.
