|Life is a Beach - Little Mermaid|
This is Card #3 in my Life is a Beach series using the Cricut cartridge by the same name. I used the little mermaid on p. 42, cut at 3 inches. The wave piece at the bottom is cut on the border setting at 1 inch ( p. 45) and you end up with a 4 inch long piece. The colors for my card are calypso coral, mint macaron and very vanilla from Stampin' Up.
I used the By the Shore DSP from Stampin' Up for the background and the circle behind the little mermaid. The circles are cut at 3" and 3-3/8". There are several circle cuts on various Cricut cartridges, or you can use dies or punches.
I inked the edges and markings on the mermaid's fin and added some Wink of Stella to the lines as well as to her bodice piece. I also added a rhinestone to the flower in her hair. The star fish can be found on p. 63.
The "happy birthday" greeting is from And Many More, also from Stampin' Up, now retired.
Finished card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2, side folding. The patterned paper layer is 4" x 5-1/4" and the mint macaron layer is 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".
This would be a sweet card for any little girl in your life. I have a few in mind that I think would love this card! I'll be back next week with the last card in the series.
