Hello everyone! I’m sharing a fun under water scene thank you card that I made a couple weeks ago. My daughter and I got some happy mail from my aunt who lives on the coast and I thought it was only appropriate to thank her with some ocean themed thanks.
I started this card by stamping out a bunch of ocean critters and seaweed from the Trinity Stamps Ocean Reef Builder set. I colored them with my copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I set those aside and moved on to setting the scene.
I took a couple of white panels and blended distress oxides on them for ocean water and some sand. I spritzed them both with water and also flicked the darkest color of watered down ink on them too. This is a cool way to get extra texture on your inked panels.
I used the scenic borders dies to cut some sand from the brown panel and adhered it to the water. I trimmed that down to 3.75×5.5 and attached two strips of silver cardstock to the top and bottom. Then I popped that on a black card base. I think it kind of looks like a giant fish tank, maybe at the aquarium given what’s in it. 😉 Then I moved on to adhering my images. Some are popped up with foam squares and others are glued directly to the scene.
I used my MISTI to stamp the first part of my sentiment on the top left which comes from the Trinity Stamps Mermaid Wishes set. Then I moved on to finishing touches. I started with glossy accents on the critter spots, sea urchins, fish stripes and sea star. Then I went back with some sprinkled sugar Stickles on the jelly fish for extra texture.
Finally, I trimmed down a white panel to 4×5.25 and stamped the Trinity Stamps Thank You Sentimini on that. Once the front was dry, I adhered it with some tape runner, wrote my message and this card was on its way.
I love scene cards and ocean scenes are some of my favorites! The critters in this set are so fun and the sentiments give you so many options to create with them.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
