Just Keep Swimming Ocean Scene Card

Happy Thursday! I hope you have been having a great week! This is Jeanette and I am sharing a fun sea creature card with you today! I was able to incorporate a lot of the sea-themed items that have been released recently!

The card-base is a standard A2 size.  I then cut out an A2 sized panel and centered the larger die in the Wavy Nested Frames Die Set over it and cut out the shape.  I mounted the panel over top my card-base using some foam tape.  This raised it slightly and creates a window effect.

I used the inside shape to create an ocean scene.  I first sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink over the entire surface as a base.  I then placed the Making Waves Stencil  over top and sponged on Mermaid Lagoon.  I then popped this into the opening using regular adhesive. I wanted this to be inset.

I die-cut some of the awesome shapes in the Build-an-Ocean Die Set out of some plain white card-stock.  I added them into the frame to fill it in a little.

The cute critters were colored with various Copic Markers and then adhered into my little ocean scene.  I have listed the markers used below :) I did add a few white accents dots onto the sea-critters as an added highlight.

The sentiment is from set and was added to the front of the card using some crisp black ink.

  1. I really like the colors and the contrast. The blue and white make the ocean babies really pop in your cute scene! Such fun in the water. A great card!
