Under the Sea – Triple Easel Card

Under the Sea – Triple Easel Card

Hi everyone!  I have been in love with easel cards lately and while looking for a little inspiration I found this template that I thought would be perfect for the Under the Sea Collection.

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Template, Rose Coral Ink, Distressed Ink (Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss), Distressed Markers (Candied Apple, Salty Ocean, Antique Linen, Work Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade), Tumbled Glass Distressed Glitter, Ribbon, Beads from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Cut the template found here out of white card stock and layer with designer paper from the Under the Sea Paper Collection.  When completed and folded this makes a 5″ x 7″ card.  The Tropical Hibiscus flowers and leaves were stamped on white cardstock with Expresso Truffle and cut with the matching die and distressed with Rose Coral Ink and the leaves were distressed with Peeled Paint distress ink.  Shape flowers with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and add beads to the stamens to finish them.  The large sea shell from the Coral Reef Collage Cling Stamp Set was stamped on white cardstock with Expresso Truffle and cut with the matching die and distressed with Desert Sand and cupped slightly with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  To make the seashell look like it was in the middle of the ocean I took the jelly fish from the Under the Sea Coral Cling Stamp Set, stamped it 2 times and cut with the matching die before distressing with a combination of Peeled Paint and Forest Moss distressed ink.  Once they were finished I fussy cut off the round top part of the jelly fish and glued the tentacles upside down to resemble sea grass.  The large corner image from the Coral Reef Collage Cling Stamp Set was stamped on white cardstock with Expresso Truffle and cut with the matching die before coloring with distressed markers.  The seahorse, fish, turtle, small sea shells and jelly fish were all cut from the lovely pre-colored images included with the Under the Sea Paper Collection and die cut using the matching dies.  Finally the tag that is sticking out of the large sea shell is cut from the paper in the Under the Sea Paper Collection using the Luggage and Tags Die as well as the Happy Birthday sentiment tag.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!
