AL handmade - My Favorite Things DT - Fish You Were Here stamp set Under the Sea Die-namics

Hi there and welcome to the MFT June Release New Product Launch! :)
All of the amazing new products we’ve been sharing for the past five days are NOW available for purchase in the MFT Boutique.
It’s time to shop! Yay!!

MFT New Release Products Available

Today I’m sharing a card highlighting the super fun Fish You Were Here stamp set and the gorgeous Under the Sea Die-namics. This new die set has the perfect assortment of scene-building accents to suit all your underwater projects and I thought that an inside shadow box card would be just perfect to show off all its amazing features.

AL handmade - My Favorite Things DT - Fish You Were Here stamp set Under the Sea Die-namics

I started to work on this card by die-cutting several coral, rocks and algae out of colored card stock. I used the ground edge included in the Under the Sea Die-namics to die-cut a dune out of white card stock where to place my ground elements and ink blended it with Wild Honey Distress ink.

Then, I ink blended some Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass Distress inks over the Drifts & Hills stencil to create a wavy background for my underwater scene.

I created the shadow box card base using Blue Yonder card stock and die-cut the window using a die from the Stitched Dome STAX Die-namics.

I colored all the fun fish with Copic markers and die-cut them using the coordinating dies before mounting them inside and outside the window. Yay, lots of dimension! :D
I heat embossed the main sentiment in white on a strip of Berrylicious card stock and added it to the card’s inside, too.

I kept the outside’s design of the card very simple. I heat embossed the sentiment in white and added a couple of fish.

Super cool fish and great wording on your card :)

I’m so glad you showed the front of your card! I never know what to do with the front when I have such an intricate internal scene, especially because I don’t want to create yet another scene. This seems like a perfect compromise: much less complicated, but still interesting. Thanks for the inspiration!
