I first did A LOT of ink blending with Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks. Once I was complete with it, I took a stencil that created the look and the illusion of waves of water. It really adds that texture this card needed.
Then, I stamped out some images from Mermaid for You and Year Six stamp sets, and colored them in with my Copic Markers. Once colored, I die cut them out with the matching dies, and then I die cut my Pivot Pop Up pieces. I assembled the main pieces of the pop up, and before I assembled anything, I did all the stamping I needed to do in order to make the process a bit easier.
Next, I put together the pop up mechanism, and put into place, and then I added all my scene building die cuts.
I actually worked on the front of the card last, because I didn't know what I wanted to do for it, but in the end, I kept it simple as the star of the show is on the inside.
I do love how it turned out, and it will be a fun birthday card to give a friend for sure!!
Thank you for stopping by today!
