Magical Day

Good Morning everyone! What's going on in your neck of the woods? I'm sitting at my computer, looking out my window...watching the snow fall! I love the quietness of the snow and love the peaceful feeling it brings as I watch it fall....it's BEAUTIFUL!  We have about three inches so far and I'm hoping our weather reports are wrong and it doesn't turn to snow this afternoon! For now...it's coming down strong and I'm ENJOYING every minute of it!

Today I have a FUN card to share with you!  It was inspired by a couple of other cards...I hope YOU will be INSPIRED!

The above cards are my inspiration!  I participated in a Facebook Hop last week and the theme was Three Shades of Green.  I wanted something that wasn't for St. Patrick's Day so I made this birthday card using the Color Theory Designer Paper Pack.  The other adorable card was shared on a team Facebook page and is created by Lorri Heiling at Confessions of a Stamping Addict...it is so clever! Below is how I brought them both together!


My card base is Whisper White with a 4" X 5 1/4" layer of Dapper Denim on top. My next layer is a 3 3/4" X 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock that I sponged at the top with Pool Party Ink.  To make the waves I cut 4" X 5 1/2" pieces of Tranquil Tide, Dapper Denim, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party card stock and embossed them using the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.  Next, I used my 3/4" punch to make the circles.  I attached the Pool Party layer with Snail adhesive and the rest I attached with dimensionals to give the water depth.  The mermaids are created with the Magical Day Bundle.  I stamped and cut three mermaids with the Magical Mates Thinlits which are part of the bundle and then colored them with my Stampin' Blend Pens.  The sun and the clouds are cut using the Thrill Ride Pop-up Thinlits. Don't forget to add a little something to the inside of  your card and envelope!  I stamped some bubbles and a seahorse!  I really LOVE how this card turned out...it's CUTE and FUN!  I also think it will make a FUN scrapbook page...my youngest daughter LOVED Ariel and dressed as a mermaid three years in a row for trick-or-treating so I'll be putting a scrapbook page together soon!

I hope you have enjoyed my creation today!  THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!
