For this card, I started with a slimline sized card. I created the background and sea base of the card using Distress Oxide Ink in Peacock Feathers (for the sky) and Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean for the sea. I sprayed water on the sea base and dabbed it with a Kleenex to add some water detail.
I used Karen Burniston's Long Nature Edges to create the beach background that the pop-up mechanism is up against. I also used her Tropical Scene die set to create the waves behind the mermaids and to make the sun.
For the clouds, I used Karen's Outdoor Scene dies. Then I added Palm Trees from the new Beach Bar Tiny House Add-On. I added some sea creatures using the new Sea Charms die set from Karen Burniston.
I used My Favorite Things Mermazing stamp set and colored in the cute little mermaids using Copic markers.
For the front of the card, I kept it simple using two different kinds of patterned paper and covered the seam with the crabs from the new Beach Borders die. Then I added some palm trees from the Beach Charms set.
Lastly, I used the new Word Set 16 - Beach Happy Hour die set and die cut the word Beach. Then I die cut the "Y" from the Happy from the same die set and added it to the end of Beach. I used Word Set 2: Birthday and added Birthday Wishes, adding the e and s to the end of Wishes using the "make a wish" sentiment.
