Under the Sea

Hi, Lois here with a fun card today.  As you may or may not know, CottageCutz recently released a whole series of word dies -- 35 in all.  Check them out in the CottageCutz store.  I had such fun making my card for today, and I used one of the word dies -- discover -- on it.  I'm a big fan of underwater scenery, and that's what I created today.


To start my card,  I cut a piece of heavyweight teal-colored cardstock 5 1/2" x 11", scored in half.  Then I cut a piece of navy cardstock 5 1/4" square and a piece of swirly bluegreen patterned paper 5 1/8" square.


Most of the die-cuts on my card come from one single die, Under the Sea -- plus the Clown Fish (which may be currently out-of-stock) die and the Seahorse die -- as well as the word die.


After cutting the pieces, I added some color shading using Copic markers.


Then I went about constructing my scene.  That was really a lot of fun.  The inset pieces on the seahorse and clown fish were cut from cardstock on which I had already applied some adhesive backing, so inlaying them into the outlines was pretty easy once I had glued down the fish and seahorse onto the card.


Here again is my completed underwater scene.

This is a great underwater scene Lois. And the patterned paper you chose for it is perfect. Love the use of the discover word-creative idea
