Under the Sea


Ever get a card idea in your head and you really have no purpose for the card other then you just want to make it? Well this is one of those cards. The idea popped in my head a few weeks back out of the blue and I finally got around to making it. My original plan was cut the Little Mermaid out on the cricut using my Dreams Come True Disney princess cartridge. All was well into it was time to cut the eyes. I only have the baby bug and those eyes are so damn tiny. So then I thought I would cut her out again onto white cardstock and then color them in, NO they looked scary. I tried and tried no luck only frustration. Then I remembered that I had a mermaid Jolee I could use. The Flounder and Sebastian are from the cricut cartridge. The background is cuttlebuged using the tiny bubbles embossing folder. In the picture on the Little Mermaids fins you can see the pop dots but in real life you can't really see them on the card, but I had the card under the light and it was showing through more. Does that make sense?

I often think the work we do "just because" is often our best work, or certainly the most inspired! I love this card...wonderful dimension and texture!

That looks so darn cute! I really gotta check out this cuttlebug thing. Or... maybe not. Last time I checked something out, I bought it (think cricut). I love it, though! Your cards are always so professional looking!

This is awesome! I made an Ariel card with scrapbooking stickers awhile back too. It's kind of a fun way to make cards quick, isn't it?
