Swimming By To Say I Love You Valentine's Day Card

Hello Friends!

I'm back again today with another interactive card featuring the Swimming By Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps. Love this little mermaid 😍 

As you know, if you've been following my work I absolutely love creating interactive cards. Although I LOVE clean and simple cards (CAS), I almost never make anything simple, lol!

So her She is...
and what do you think of my background?!

As you probably can tell I created the background using Tim Holtz Alcohol inks. Like everyone else, I had been experimenting with them and this background was my favorite, so of course I had to turn it into a card. Since the background reminded me of water, I knew I had to use the Swimming By stamp set. And, since I was using a Mermaid stamp, I thought why not use my Mermaid Markers to color my images in! I really did have fun with this card 😆

To create the spinning part of card, I used a couple of large circle dies. I popped up the center cut out circle with foam tape as well as the outer edge of the card, the inner circle was glued directly to the card base. I then created 2 sliders for the mermaid to attach to, using a smaller circle die and a couple of slider disks. Once they were completely dry I inserted them into the well of the cut out circle channel.  Next, I glued the mermaid to the top of the slider elements. I then added the sentiments to the inside and the top of the card. Finally I embellished the card with lots of bling using a sparkle pen, glitter pen, rhinestones, and glossy accents.

Just look at all the shine, so pretty in when you see it person!
