Good morning 🙂 I’m here with another inspiration project for the current Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Group challenge 🙂 Our theme for the month of July is Summertime/Seaside. There are tons of gorgeous mermaid and summery images in the Ching-Chou Kuik store to get you started, and we would LOVE to see your creations with these beautiful images!!! I used the Sunset Jasmine image, from the Beautiful Tails mermaid set. I colored her up with Copics, adding some highlights with a white gel pen.
I had seen the “impossible card” fold in a few places recently, and wanted to try it. I’ve never been the greatest at following directions to a “T”, so I modified the measurements a bit and ended up with an image that didn’t want to stand up!! I had to add a piece to the back to prop it up, but it doesn’t affect the design, or the ability to fold it up and fit it in a standard size envelope 🙂 I’ve had the burlap background die for some time, and never used it, but I immediately thought about it when making this card!! I cut 2 and a bit out and used them as a backdrop for the punched flowers, leaf vines, and the scattering of silver seashells. I also added a few pearl sprays to the top part, and a shimmery die cut sand dollar to the bottom piece. I then printed out the sentiment on my computer and cut the banner shapes…..wiggling around with the dies a bit to make them smaller, and more fitting with the card 🙂
I’d like to enter this in the following:
