My nephew celebrated his 5th birthday this week and, since he is a HUGE Octonauts fan, I thought I'd make him a special card...
Kelly Kent's fantastic tutorial which you can find HERE. There were a few items that are retired that I no longer own, so I had to improvise a little. One example is Capt. Barnacle's hat. For it, I used one of the label dies in the Apothecary Accents framelits (also retired, but one I've held onto) and then punched it with the 1-1/4" circle die. Here's a close up:
I adhered the shaker card front to a Pacific Point base to create and easel. On the inside I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped the sentiment from the Confetti Celebration stamp set and a few more fish in Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron.
To say my nephew liked his card is an understatement...he seems to think it's an iPad and has carried it everywhere he goes since receiving it on Sunday. Poor kid is going to be sadly disappointed to discover that it most definitely is NOT an iPad, but at least for a few days I was a hero :)
Have a great day!
