Underwater Layered Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Midsummer Blues

We are showcasing Memory Box Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

These Memory Box dies are so fun to use, I had never used them before so I thought they’d be perfect for this challenge!!

  I cut all 3 layers out using Bristol Smooth card stock and went to work ink blending each layer except for the very top layer which is the Underwater Collage. For the background layer, I used the Honey Bee Stamps Ocean Scene Builder stencil to add a few rays shining through. I used Tsukineko Delicata White Shimmer ink over the rays so you see this beautiful pearly sheen when you look at it in the light.

Once I had all of my layers cut out, I thought this would look really cool with some dimension so I added craft foam to 2 of the layers but left the top layer foam free so that it wouldn’t start to get too bulky. At this time I thought a shaker card would be fun so I also added some acetate. I had to add a couple of fish so I colored a few from Lawn Fawn’s Finastic Friends stamp set with my copic markers. I used two layers of acetate so that I could glue my fish on one layer to make them look like they were floating in the water. Behind that back layer of acetate is where I put my shaker bits. I used several different types of sequins which I’ve linked below.

For the top layer of acetate I used Heat Resistant Acetate so that I could heat emboss those lovely bubbles from the Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Mermaid stamp set in white embossing powder. My sentiment is from Lawn Fawn’s Keep On Swimming stamp set which I white heat embossed on black card stock. I attached my shaker window onto an A2 size piece of Fog card stock and then attached everything to a top folding card base.

To finish off my card, I added a few Iridescent Bubbles by Studio Katia over some of the heat embossed bubbles and also a few just on my card front to tie everything together. For a step by step tutorial, please watch my video above or head over to my YouTube channel.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
