To start I stamped images from the You are Sublime set with Copic-friendly ink and then colored them with Copic markers. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and then added accents with a white gel pen. Next, I die-cut the Shadow Box Card from dark blue cardstock and used the Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-on to die-cut the scalloped opening on the front panel. I adhered the box together with adhesive and then started building my scene.
First, I die-cut the word ‘dad’ with white cardstock using Finley’s ABCs. Then I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. I used the die in the Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-on to die-cut the sentiment into a fishtail banner. I adhered them to the box card and added the fish and foliage to the outside of the box. Next, I blended pine needles distress ink onto a piece of white cardstock and die-cut it with the Bayou Backdrop die. I trimmed it down and adhered it to the backside of the front panel to create seaweed.
I cut two small strips of dark blue cardstock and adhered them to the top of the shadow box to create panels for my diver and fish. I adhered them to an acetate strip and adhered the strip to the panel. Finally, I added my submarine to the back panel for a little vertical interest!
And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty for those special guys in your life! I can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
