Crafty Cardmakers #194 Under The Sea or At The Beach

Judy is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is either Under The Sea, or At The Beach.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it’s matches either of the two above themes.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

My card was made for  friend’s little girl who was going to be 4 and who was a big fan of the Little Mermaid, Ariel.

I wanted the card to be one she could keep – but it needed to fold flat!  In the end I made a shadow box type card.  I cut a scalloped edge aperture in the front, and stuck acetate into the opening, which I embossed with a snowfall embossing folder to simulate bubbles.  I used an under the sea background picture I got from a google search as the background, and some stickers backed onto card for the characters.  Inside the “box” I put some sparkly string that I “liberated” from a plant in work last Christmas when we packed the decs away, because I thought it looked like seaweed… I imported the sticker image of Ariel into Serif to create the big 4 with the sentiment.

Lexie loved it – I hope you like it too…
