Mermaid for Each Other Valentine Shaker Card | Studio Katia

Happy New Years EVE Everyone!!! I still can't believe this year is over, it feels like I just blinked and the year was done. Can't wait to see what 2019 will bring. 

For my last card of the year, I have created this valentine shaker card featuring the cute Mermaid for Each Other stamps and Coordinating Dies. How cute are these little mermaid people 😍

CARD DETAILS

To begin this card I stamped out the mermaids onto Bristol paper and colored them in using Zig markers and then used the Coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I die cut the top panel using first the Loops Creative Die and then the large frame die from the Darling Ribbons and Frames Die and then glued the acetate to the backside. I then played around to figure out where the little merpeople were going to peek through and glued them in place with foam to the acetate. 

To create the underwater background I blended together a bunch of blue colored distress oxide inks from darkest to lightest leaving the top almost white. I then placed the Light Ray Stencil at the top of the ocean line and used a baby wipe to lift off some of the colors from the paper. To finish off the background I misted the paper with water and picked it up with a paper towel to create the look bubbles underwater.

The shaker mix consists of Silver Polka Fusion and Majestic Sequins plus some Just Chunky Confetti Glitter. Also for fun, I added Iridescent Bubbles onto the top of the card.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of paper that I had die cut using the small rectangle frame from the Dotted Patterns Set 2, and then die cut it again to create a smaller rectangle. The scripted Silver "love" comes from the Spring Bouquet Dies set and the heart was die cut from the Dotted Scalloped Oblong die set, to which I finished off by adding some glossy accents too.
