Mermaid Birthday

My daughter has a birthday pool party to go to this weekend, so I thought that this Reverse Confetti Mermaid Kisses would be the perfect set to make a card with. I’m playing along with the Reverse Confetti’s new Stack your Stash Birthday Challenge.

Here the card that my daughter helped me with. We thought it would be fun to make it a shaker with the fun little die cut pieces.

I first used a circle die to cut out the center for the shaker. I stamped the mermaid in Gina K Amalgam ink and water colored her with my Zig Markers. I also stamped and some fish, shells, and starfish and colored those as well and die cut them all. Once they well all colored I also used a sparkle pen to add some shine to the pretty mermaid as the die cut pieces.

I cut out some acetate in a larger circle and then glued the mermaid to the back and the acetate behind her. I used foam tape made a border around the circle, making sure all the circle was enclosed (don’t want those small beads escaping) and also around the rest of the card. I added some sequins as well as the small die cut pieces into the shaker portion of the card. I blended the background with distress ink in Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean and carefully adhered the two pieces together.

I thought the front looked a little plain, so I die cut another circle frame around the window. I stamped the sentiment from RC’s Monkey Business on some RC Navy cardstock in Versafine ink and clear heat embossed it.

Hope you enjoy this fun birthday card! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
