Mermaid Tag

I enjoy making cards that will surprise the person who receives it.  This one has a  vellum pocket and a tag behind inside it.  I used several Technique Junkie stamps to create this card: By the Sea SS060 - www.techniquejunkies.com/by-the-sea-set-of-6/ , and Sea Waves S628 - http://techniquejunkies.com/sea-waves/. 

I tore thin strips of a pale blue vellum and adhered those strips on the backside of thin white vellum.  The narrow blue panels at the top and bottom of the card help to create the pocket for the tag to slip in and out of.  I stamped the words from the Near the Sea  from the set By the Sea repetitively on the front  of the vellum pocket.  The base card is stamped with Sea Waves.


The Tag is also stamped with Sea Waves and then the mermaid is stamped over the waves.  It was inked with black Versafine ink, covered with detail black embossing powder, and heat set. The focal verse is also from the stamp set By the Sea.  Ribbons were tied to the tag to pull the tag in and out.


Have a wonderful day -- may the beach be in your future this summer!  And get inky!

What a cute idea. And there's that vellum again. Truly a unique idea.
