Jawsome Birthday


I am up on the Joy Clair blog today with this card featuring one of our new releases, Baby Shark. I had so much fun creating this card.
I started with a white top folding card base, a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller and a piece Black Onyx for the mat. I stamped the shark images and colored them using Copic markers. Next I masked them off, yep every single one of them so I could stamp the bubbles. After I got all the bubbles stamps I adhered the panel to the piece of Black Onyx and then to the base so I could add the Crystalline drops to the bubbles. I was sending this to my grandson for his 2nd birthday so later I added some googley eyes to them (I took a picture I just have to find it) below is a close up of the bubbles.




To finish the card, I embossed the greeting on a piece of black onyx and then used the Cut-Align to cut it down.
