The fish, sea star and shell were part of an underwater scene by our sponsor this month: Make it Crafty. You can check out their great digis here:
I did a trace of each digi using my Silhouette Design Studio software and then did an offset file. I made a mirror copy above the offset file and then moved the top copy down slightly to overlap the bottom copy so I could weld the pieces together to have a shaped flap for each object to hide the sentiment inside. I love interactive cards!
I used the scalloped border dies from Pink and Main to create two sets of waves for my scene with CTMH Valentine paper that has a slight "wave" pattern with hearts that I thought would be perfect for this ocean-themed card. I used one side of the paper for the top waves and the other side for the bottom waves to add some color variation. I glue taped the first layer to the base of my top-hinge card and then used thin foam tape on the next 2 layers and a thicker foam tape for the last layer.
Here's a look with the flaps closed and the sentiments hidden:
Now here's a look at the hidden sentiments when the flaps are open: "You're a reel catch," "You're a star," and "Let's Shell-abrate our love" worked well with the fish, sea star and shell. Can you tell I like puns?
