Under the Sea Side Step Card

Today I am sharing my design team project for Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

For my project I used the "Under the Sea Set" which can be found here:

Card Recipe

Digital Stamps used: Under the Sea Set by Digital Delights by Louby Loo

SVG files used: Card base is a free download from the group, "Cricut Lovers Guide to Design Space." 
Seaweed, coral and waves from Cricut.
Mats from Cuddly Cute Designs

Cardstock/ Papers: Base cut from "All Dressed Up Glitter" from DCWV.
Mats behind the seahorse are from Pixey Stix by The Paper Studio.
Glitter paper by Core'dinations.
Shimmer paper by Recollections.
Image printed on Spectrum Noir Cardstock by Crafter's Companion.

Acc./Embellishments: various sized sequins, 6 pearls in three sizes.
Glue, foam tape.

The card base was cut from the DCWV cardstock at 10 by 6 3/4inches. I cut three sets of seaweed from shimmer cardstock at about 3 1/2 inches and one smaller set 2 1/2 inches tall. I cut two coral from orange glitter paper at 3 inches. The waves were cut from two shades
 of blue glitter cardstock and are 4 inches long. One large seaweed goes on the left section and the other two, along with the coral were glued to the last step so they flare out to the sides. The large wave was glued to the middle step and the smaller wave was attached in front of the larger one with foam tape. The smaller seaweed was attached to the left side of the waves.

The images were made using the Print Then Cut feature on my Cricut Explore. The mermaid is 4 1/4 inches tall, the turtle is 2 1/4 inches tall and the seahorse is about 3 inches tall. The turtle is mounted on a 4 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch mat set cut from the Pixey Stix cardstock. All these images were attached to the card base with foam tape to give the card dimension. The sentiment is 1 inch by 2 1/2 inches and was glued to the bottom right of the card.

Various sizes and colors of sequins were glued around the mermaid and seahorse. Four various sized pearls were attached to either side of the sentiment in a swirl pattern.
