Tropical Fishy!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends!

We have a brand new release of dies in the online store.  This selection of dies features Pirates and Sea Creatures! There are 14 awesome designs in the collection and you are going to want each and everyone of them!!

Now onto todays card.  It has been really hot in Arizona. So the water in this picture makes me want to jump into our pool!!  I have been making a ton of hello cards lately because so many of my friends are still unable to travel.  I sure miss seeing them!  I am praying that this virus will soon just go away!

I am highlighting the new Tropical Fish die.  I love using bright colors and the tropical fish are perfect for these vivid colors.

Design Steps:
1.  Use and A2 white card base, a piece of white card stock 4 x 5 1/4, white frame cut with the largest of the Stitched Wide Rectangle Frame dies, a piece of green card stock cut first with the largest of the Scalloped Rectangle dies and then the center cut out with the largest of the Pierced Rectangle dies.  This will give you a piece of green scalloped trim
2.  On the piece of white card stock use 3 different TH blues inks to create the ocean.  Next spray with water to create the bubbles.  Use a piece of 2 1/2 x 4 inch brown card stock torn in half to create the sand.  I glued one piece to the blue inked card stock and the other to the back of the frame. Glue the green trim to the front of the frame

3.  Glue the blue inked piece directly to the card base.  Place dimension tape on the back of the frame and then adhere on top of the blue inked piece
4.  Using the Tropical Fish die cut out all of the pieces.  I used blue, teal, purple, light green, dark green, white, light purple, dark pink, orange, dark orange and yellow
5.  Shade the pieces using a variety of inks and then assemble
6.  Arrange onto card base and glue down some of the pieces and use pop dots on others.  All of the fish have pop dots behind them.  Stamp the sentiment and add glossy accents to the pearl.  Your card is complete!
