Wild and Free Like the Sea with Mermaid Tails

Good morning,

Denise here with two little creations using the lovely  Mermaid Tails  Kaisercraft collection.

041032We had to opportunity to do anything we liked for one of our posts this month so I decided to make a quick card and a layout focusing on using the Collectables . How versatile and useful these are – I just love opening the pack and tipping them all out to sift through them and find what I’m going to use.

The colours in this collection are so pretty lovely lilacs and blues and greens. For my card I used a piece of Coconut Weave Kaisercard that I had made into a 6 x 6 card . I layered some beautiful Splash Glitter Card together with some of the turtle paper from the 6.5 x6.5 paper  pad. I also used some of  a shell border sticker from the sticker sheet across the middle. The sentiment was also from the paper pad.

Finally time for some fussy cutting !034sssThese were cut out from one of the 12 x 12 papers – Deep Sea.

Next – for the layout I started with the very wavy and gorgeous Ripples paper to give it a lovely sea like feel. I cut a strip 5 x 12 from the Sea Turtle paper and placed this across the top .

To mat my photo I used three papers from the 6.5 x6.5 paper pad placed them in layers across the turtles strip. I cut a strip from the Marine paper then cut a banner end and this was layered beside the photo. I punched along another strip cut from one of the 6.5 x 6.5  paper pad pages and tucked this under the top together with some wording cut from one of the manufacturer’s strips along the bottom and some anchor stickers from the sticker sheet.

031aI used some more of the papers to cut some strips with banner ends at the bottom – these were layered on to more die cut elements from the 6.5 x 6.5  paper pad and placed at the bottom of the layout.mt44Finally some more elements from the Collectables pack were layered around my photo to finish off.031aI hope you’ve enjoyed our projects so far – there are lots more to come from the other lovely ladies on the team
