In keeping with my beach/water themes, I have been working on some Mermaid cards. I am not adding a sentiment yet as they could be used for a variety of occasions. I think most will be birthday cards but they would also make a great "just swimming by to say Hello" card.
I make cards for my daughters and I so think some of these will end up going home with them too. Little Miss C has also made some mermaid cards...once I am home again I will feature a couple of hers as well!
I made this one at my neighbour's house , the night before I left for my Mums. Although I can craft up at the
RV, I can't post the photos of the finished work as the laptop up there has damaged USB ports:( Lots of odds and sods are being used up on these cards...I basically have my entire entire water/sea themed drawer with me! Hope you don't get too tired of my water theme...
The starfish and the sand dollar have been run through embossing folders. I threw the packaging away long before I started blogging. I think the EF used for the sand dollar is Provocraft 's Swiss Dots but not sure of the name of the starfish one. If anyone knows, would you mind to leave it in the comments and I will update the recipe!
