Merman card for the boys

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day and a scrap happy time this weekend in honor of National Scrapbook Day.

Today I am showcasing yet another card for the grandsons. They now officially have a shelf where they are displaying all of my cards, so cute! I feel kind of funny sending them back to back ocean themed cards but one of the challenges this week I have with my friend is to use a digital image and when I saw this cute merman boy I just couldn't resist.

I am using two sentiments combined that are from Kraftin Kimmie as well as the coral at the bottom of the card and the fish dies are from Poppystamps. I colored the little guy in copics and fussy cut and then popped him up on the overall frame which was a die from My Favorite Stamps.

And it's hard to see on except in person but I used some copic glitter pens to give the mermans fins and scales some shine. The dark aqua blue also has a sheen to it. Lets just say this card looks much better in person than in film.


  1. Oh, what a cute card, Leslie! That's so sweet that they have a place to display your cards!
