Hello, I’m back today with another card, using You’re Fin-tastic Stamp Set and Fishbowl Die-namics from MFT’s May Vault Release. Another couple of products that made me VERY sad to see retired so I’m extra happy to see them back
I decided to create a shaker element for this card. To begin, I cut the second largest die from Fishbowl Die-namics (the same one used to cut out the center of the fishbowl front) from a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock then sponged it with Broken China Distress Ink, spattered with clean water. I added clear acetate card stock to the back of this opening and that became my shaker “window”. I cut Fishbowl Die-namics from Grout Gray card stock, cut out the center and adhered it to the front, lining it up with the windowed opening.
Next I cut the fish, sand, and seaweed, secured them in the fish bowl from the back, created my shaker element with bits of foam, added gold shimmer seed beads, and closed up the back with another sponged panel. Once that was done I stamped the sentiments and added the hearts, to coordinate with the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ve gotten a little inspiration in the last few days for some of YOUR Vault goodies. Now, go shop and I’ll see you soon!
