MFT May Previews, Sea Life

Hi everyone!  It’s time to begin previews of MFT‘s May release!  Today I’ve used Lisa Johnson’s Sea Life with coordinating Die-namics to create two clean and simple “everyday” cards.

First I die-cut the fish and fronds (I’m calling them fronds :) ) from Smooth White card stock, then stamped in Sour Apple and Berrylicious.  The fronds were adhered over Natural sand and the fish is raised on foam tape. After adhering, I added a light sheen to the die-cut pieces using a clear Wink of Stella brush.  (Hard to capture in a photo, but it’s a nice, subtle shimmery sparkle.)

Inside, I stamped the fronds and fish again.

Next I created a simple thank you card, adding in a Grapesicle coral.

Again, I added a soft sparkle to everything.

A simple finish to the inside:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’ll be back tomorrow!

Additional supplies/info:  Zig Wink of Stella clear brush, X-Press It 1/2″ foam tape.  Finished size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
