Case this Sketch 288

September 10, 2018

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Case This Sketch.  I decided to use the Magical Mermaid stamp set, which I bought because I have four granddaughters and it has so many applications for girls.  It is also a great stamp set to combine with several others in the Annual Catalogue including High Tide.  I embossed Whisper White card using the Seaside Embossing Folder before attaching to scored and folded Coastal Cabana card.  I stamped one of the images from the Bokeh Dots stamp set onto Whisper White card using Coastal Cabana ink.  The stamped panel is attached to Gray Granite card and then the embossed Whisper White card.  I stamped the mermaid image from the Magical Mermaid stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The mermaid is coloured using Dark Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.  I fussy cut the image and attached it to the left of the Bokeh Dots panel using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Magical Mermaid stamp set onto Whisper White card and used the Tailored Tag Punch to punch it out.  However, I did punch it twice, once so that the top edge of the greeting fitted inside the punch and once so the bottom edge of the greeting fitted inside the punch.  I attached it to a Tailored Tag punched from Gray Granite card and you can see that I am left with a nice border around the greeting.  The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the sand image from the Magical Mermaid stamp set across the bottom of Whisper White card using Gray Granite ink.  I stamped the seaweed image from the same stamp set over the top of the sand across the whole panel using Coastal Cabana ink, making sure to stamp several times without re-inking.

I am so happy with the outcome using this sketch.  I am sure one of my granddaughters will love this card.

Bye for now,
