Mermaid Kisses

E. Marie here to share a sweet card using SNS’s new Mermaid Kisses set. Not only does this set come with an adorable mermaid image but also includes some shell images that are very versatile. This card features the fan style shell used three different ways.

The first use of this shell image is to create the sparkly background. It was stamped with VersaMark ink repeatedly on designer paper and heat embossed using Sparkle embossing powder. The original design still shows through but with additional texture, design, and sparkle. This background is die cut with a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval in the center and adhered to a slightly larger piece of white cardstock. Then an oval die is used to cut a window from both layers, leaving a small scalloped frame. Brushable glue was added to the inside and outside edges with a sponge dauber and covered with Teal Velveteen Velvet Glitter. The die cut scalloped oval center is adhered to the card base and this layer is popped up over the top with dimensionals.


The shell image is used next to create the decorative corners. It was stamped and heat embossed in black and colored with markers and a Dove Blender. These were fussy cut and covered with VersaMark ink and Sparkle Embossing Powder, then added to the two top corners of the card front.

Two more shell images, created the same as the two corners, are used to create a decorative sentiment. The words were heat embossed with Native American Embossing Powder and die cut with an oval die. Teal Velveteen Velvet Glitter is added to the outer edges with Brushable Glue and added to the card front. The shell images are added sideways to each side.

The card is finished by adding the mermaid in the center window, using dimensionals. She was stamped and heat embossed with black embossing powder, colored with markers and a Dove Blender, and fussy cut. Orchid Rose and Teal Velveteen Velvet Glitter is added, using a glue pen.

Thanks for stopping by!
