Good morning! Happy Monday!
So – did you watch the game last night? Do you watch for the game or…the commercials? You don’t watch? There was a game last night?!?
As I type this post – they’re just about half way thru the second quarter. I’ve thrown my hat in with the Bucs – not gonna lie – I like Tom Brady. He’s one heckuva QVB and his longevity is pretty amazing. He’s not unpleasant to look at either! 😉 And – watching him and Gronk back together again…a well-oiled machine! Also – the commercials were really good!! If you watched – did you have a fave? So far it’s between the Bud Lemons and the Rocket Mortgage “pretty sure” commercials! But there’s a lot of commercial left to play! 😉
But – on to the card! I pulled out the fun Shark Frenzy bundle for this one – and I added in a little Seabed embossing and Sand & Sea DSP. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.
And I also borrowed some inspiration from the Festive Friday challenge list. I’ve got blue, silver, water, sentiment, and acetate! 😉
I started by popping a piece of Sand & Sea DSP onto a Smoky Slate mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals for the card front.
Next, I cut a smaller panel of Basic White and cut a Stitched Shapes Die circle from the middle – near the top. Then I embossed it in the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder. Using Seal +, I adhered a square of Window Sheet to the back of the panel.
Using the Shark Dies – bundled with the Shark Frenzy stamp set – I cut some pieces and parts for my underwater scene. I cut several fish – using the die that cuts three at a time – from Rainbow Glimmer Paper. There are two grasses dies in the set and I cut two of each from Vellum cardstock. I also cut some solid Seaside Spray “bubbles”.
I adhered some of the fish, the “bubbles” and two of the grasses to the card front with Liquid Glue – making sure they would be behind the “window” in the embossed white panel. Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the baby shark from Shark Frenzy in Smoky Slate on a piece of Basic White, then used the matching fill image in Seaside Spray. Then I cut him with the coordinating die in the Shark Dies. I also cut some more “bubbles” – using a second bubbles die in the set – from Silver Foil.
On a strip of Basic White, I stamped the two sentiment words in Seaside Spray (I used my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker to add the dot dot dot) and snipped a banner end.
I adhered the Silver “bubbles” and the sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue. I added the second two grasses so that they extend over the window and adhered a few remaining fish right onto the acetate window – which gives my sea scene some depth.
Not twenty thousand leagues or anything, but…a little depth!!
I popped the shark on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a few silver Metallic Pearls, and the card front was done.
On the inside, I added a second Shark Frenzy sentiment and the little baby shark on a Basic White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, adhered the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got baby Shark Frenzy on the front…
…and a little more of the Sand & Sea DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Okay – I know you’ve now got the Baby Shark song in you head. You’re welcome! I think this is the cutest little set – with fun sentiments for cards FROM kids TO their parents – or for new babies/showers or…!
I hope you like!

P.S. So…it takes a minute to do a blog post when you’re watching the game AND the commercials! As a result – I’ve now seen enough to commercials to know that the Rocket Mortgage ones are going to end up being one of my faves! Check them out – I KNOW they’ll be on YouTube! 🙂
