Floating Sea Life



Welcome to the International Training Blog Hop sponsored by Bruno & Kylie Bertucci! Our theme is customer Thank You cards and my cards feature the Sea Life Dies from the Annual Catalog.  These dies are 20% off for the month of March.


I've recently become aware of the Floating Technique.  This involves putting paper onto window sheet and popping that up with dimensionals to make it look like it's floating over the cardstock.  

This card uses some of my favorite colors - the blues/aqua and turquoises of the Stampin' Up!© family.  Card base is Night of Navy 8 1/2 x 11"; Bermuda Bay Layer is 5 1/4 x 4"; Pool Party layer is 5 x 3 3/4" and textured with the 3D bark embossing folder.

Strips on the window sheets were varying sizes in Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Balmy Blue, Pool Party,  Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.  Circle was cut with the largest Layering Circle Die.


Inside was stamped in the same colors with a stamp from the For the Record stamp set.  


Here's a version with the Sea Horses too.  Gems added were the new gems that coordinate with Waves of the Ocean suite.
