Submarine Life, Children's Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun children's card to share with you. I thought it looked cute so I had to make one. I saw the original card on Pinterest but my computer rebooted and I lost the link. If you know who is the original designer of this card, please let me know so I can give them a link back. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Lost Lagoon card stock for the layer. I taped that to the card base.

Then I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock to stamp on. I first stamped on the waves at the top. I used Pool Party, Balmy Blue and Coastal Cabana inks.

Next I stamped the seaweed on the bottom. I used Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist inks.

The starfish and crab at the bottom were stamped using Lost Lagoon ink.

The fish were stamped using Pool Party ink. Using my Blending Brush I scrubbed on some Balmy Blue over he whole piece.

The words are from the same set, which I forgot to mention, it's the "Submarine Life" set. I used Lost Lagoon to stamp them.

Using a scrap piece of Basic White card I stamped the submarine and the propeller. These two pieces were punched out. I glued the propeller to the back of the submarine. Using a spring I glued it to the front of the card and then to the back of the submarine. It's now a wiggly submarine. Just thought I'd add a little more fun to the card. 

This was a fun card to make. LOTS of stamping but so worth it.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's children's birthday card,
