The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Graphic 45 I'm Really A Mermaid Card

Hello everyone!  It's Friday so that means it's my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Today, I have a fun mermaid card filled with lots of layers and sparkle to share with you.

Here is the card I designed using some of the beautiful pattern papers from the  Graphic 45 - Voyage Beneath the Sea 8 x 8 Paper Collection and American Crafts Heidi Swapp Glitter Paper 8.5x8.5.  The card base is a white 5.5 x 5.5 top folding card.  I started with a layer of the aqua glitter paper from Heidi Swapp.  Then I used the Spellbinders - Labels Twenty-Eight to create two of the label die cut shapes.  The wide mermaid border is also from the G45 paper pad.  I fussy cut the sentiment - I'm really a Mermaid and then I layered it with aqua glitter paper and white cardstock.  I used Scor-Tape and Therm-O-Web Foam Squares in between the different layers of paper.  

Once all of the paper die cuts and layers were adhered to the card front then I added some Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the mermaid's body, starfish, shells, fish, bubbles, and part of the sentiment.  I added Ranger - Glossy Accents on top of all of the same areas.  Once the glossy accents was dry then I added some Prima Say It In Crystals - Royal MenageriePetaloo Botanica Collection Sugared Blooms Teal and Prima Flowers - Serenade Orange.

Here is close up to see the sparkle and glossy accents.  This is such a fun paper collection from G45 with the magical mystery of mermaids and a touch of steampunk.  Plus anything with mermaids is such a hot trend right now.

Here is one more close up so you can see where I added the sparkle and glossy accents to the tiny fish and starfish in the border.  You can also see the Prima crystals.  They are so pretty and change colors when the light hits them--they look like they have glitter in them.

Please be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all of your paper crafting needs and also visit the Stamp Simply Blog for more inspiration from the design team.

I hope you enjoyed today's card.
