These 3 cards were created per the kit instructions (see video above). This kit has supplies to make 3 of each design.

These 2 alternate cards were created with the kit contents. The birds and sea horse are attached with Window Sheet strips and appear to be floating or flying.

I used the card front panels as designer paper on the front of these cards. One is under the sea and the other is above the sea.


The clouds are from the Stampin Up Waves Dies. I layered another piece of the card front panel on the bottom and fussy cut waves into it to give the appearance of the bottle floating in the water.


This view shows the card flat.

This is my “under the sea” card. I was going for a coral reef look.

A side view of the card. The sea horse on the steps is on a Window Sheet strip so he looks like he’s floating.


This is a view of the card flattened.

The mat layers on this card were created with the Stampin’ Up Pearlescent Specialty Paper. The circles are from the Stylish Shapes dies
