Seahorses are so calming. Blues and greens with glittering air bubbles and starfish make you think of the slowly undulating water, with an occasional streak of sunlight peaking through.
I based this card off of the colors in the printed paper from Love Cardmaking issue 4 and the Seahorses I had stamped using Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse stamp set. Using a gate fold A7 base card and envelope from Park Lane allowed me to create the asymmetry of the opening by cutting the layered stack of print paper and seagreen textured paper using only the outer edge die of Tonic Studios for Scrapbook.com’s Paisley Edge Dot & Drop Die.
Inside the card, I used the sentiment stamp from the Color Layering Seahorse stamp set on a white scrap of cardstock and tore the edges to suggest waves. By using three layers of red backed permanent tape I created the effect of the white card floating above the blue cardstock. The seashell is also stamped from the Hero Arts stamp set. The bubbles were from the Lawn Fawn Rub-A-Dub-Dub stamp set. The envelope flap was all stamped using the Color Layering Seahorse stamp set.
