Thank you all for following along for Shark Week 2023! I hope you've found the cards and theme fun. Today I will be sharing my final shark card before moving onto to other summer goodness.
My final card is a shaker card made using the Surf Shark stamp set from Whimsy Stamps.
*All supplies are linked at the end of this post for you convenience.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Next I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same white cardstock and use the A2 Antique Frames die set by Whimsy Stamps to cut the hole in the middle of the card. Behind the frame I placed a sheet of paper from the Slimline Under the Sea paper pack (cut to fit). I lined the back of the frame with 3M foam adhesive to created height for the shaker card. I placed about 2 tablespoons of sequins behind the frame before adhering it tightly.
I stamped the Surf Shark in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah White cardstock. I colored it using Copic Markers and then fussy cut the image out. I adhered the image to the card using 3M foam adhesive for dimension. I also put a layer of Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the image to make it look wet and shiny.
On a thin strip of white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink. I notched the right end before adhering it to the top left of the card. On a scrap piece of white cardstock, I also stamped the sentiment "duh duh" in blue ink and then used the Comic Speech Bubbles die set from Whimsy Stamps to die cut the sentiment. I adhered the speech bubble above the shark using 3M foam.
Thanks for following along for Shark Week 2023! Have a wonderfully creative weekend!
Here is the card that I created for today's Instagram hop:
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I then cut a 5 1/4 x 4" piece of the same white cards and using the Wavy Nested Frame dies by Whimsy Stamps, I cut a large hole using the 2nd largest Wavy Nested Frame die in the center of the cardstock. I placed a sheet of ocean themed paper from the Slimline Under the Sea paper pack behind the Wavy Nested Frame die.
I stamped one of the shark images and the girl on the inner tube from the Snark Attack stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. I fussy cut the images and then colored them with Copic Markers. I adhered the images to the card with 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a layer of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to make it look like the images were wet.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same white cardstock with an oval shaped die cut hole in the middle. On a separate sheet of 5" x 3 1/2" Yupo paper, I created an alcohol ink smooshed background with Turquoise alcohol ink from Tim Holtz. Once the background dried, I adhered it behind the die cut oval.
