Magical Day, Children's Birthday Card

Okay, I did sit down and concentrate on making the children's birthday card that I was planning on making yesterday.  Actually I need two but first things first!!!  LOL  I was surfing the net to find a fun card that used the "Magical Day" set, plus it had to be a mermaid because the little girl getting this wants to be a mermaid when she grows up!  Ahh, to be young and dream like that!

This is a very simple card. The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White.  I cut another piece of Whisper White 5-1/8" x 3-7/8".  I embossed it with the waves embossing folder.

Next I die cut a Melon Mambo Stitched circle and a Whisper White stitched circle. I used the largest and the second largest circles in the set.  Before I die cut the white one, I did stamp the words. I used Soft Suede ink to do that.

I stamped and die cut the mermaid and the seahorse.  I colored the mermaid using the Melon Mambo marker and a blender pen. I'm SO looking forward to buying the Blends in Melon Mambo next month!!! I LOVE Blends!!!I did color her hair and her skin with the blends.  I also colored the seahorse using Pool Party Blends.  Just before I taped the circles together I stamped the bubbles and colored them with the Blends too.  

I taped the waves to the card base.  Then I added the circles.  I set the mermaid and the seahorse in place using Dimensionals and pieces of Dimensional. That seahorse is pretty tiny!

And for a final touch, I used the Wink of Stella on the mermaids hair, tail and belly scales.  I covered the entire seahorse with Wink of Stella and the bubbles as well.

And that was it!  A pretty quick card that is going to make one mermaid wishing little girl very happy to see!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
