Our sponsor this week is:
For my card, I chose the Mirima image from Sweet Peas. I just love this image! There's so many ways to incorporate this image into anything! For my card, I started out with an 8x12, and folded in half to make it an 8x6". After I had colored in my image and cut it out, I used it as my measurement to cut out the window in the front of the card. I then got my plastic insert (used from leftover packaging! Why not, right?). I used a fish punch and adhered fish on both sides of the plastic. I then layered over that plastic with another piece of plastic to give it more of a "watery" look. I also added a smaller piece of plastic on the inside to make a "pocket" so I could place "jewels" inside to make it a shaker card. I trimmed the outside window with both ribbon and pearls, then burlap for the "netting". Inside the card, I trimmed more ribbon with pearls around the edge of the inside window. I foam mounted my image and then decorated with enamel dots and the cut out fish.
I hope you enjoyed this! Thanks for stopping by!
