A Sweet Underwater Welcome

Candice here and I'm happy to be sharing my first post with you as an official Whimsy DT member!  Have you all been enjoying this fabulous new July release?!  Today I have a sweet welcome-baby, slim-line card for you, underwater style!

Lately slim line cards have become my favorite and are easier than you think.  To create an
8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base, you trim an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock to 8 1/2 x 7, and you will even be left with a piece to fit on the front!  The envelope size is 9A and can be purchased at your local craft store or online. 

Now, to get to the fun stuff!  I took the extra piece and heat embossed the center with the Curly Q's background stamp in poly sparkle and the Congrats in white.  I then lightly inked with Tumbled Glass distress ink.

I used the awesome new Build an Ocean die set to create the scene by inking them lightly with oxide inks in twisted citron, milled lavender, & dried marigold. 

Next, I stamped the adorable Baby Sea Creatures with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copic markers, accented with a white pen and fussy cut out. 

For my final touches, I added a variety of sequins and Wink of Stella to the bubbles for a little bit of shine.  If you haven't seen the Sparkletz yet, you will fall in love with these to add shine and detail to your projects!

I hope you are inspired to try a slim line card and share with us at Whimsy Stamps Inspiration on Facebook!
