CCMC 162...

The jury is still out on this card, but thought I would use a stamp set which hasn't been out of its box for some time, & give it a little bit of ink.

I've taken the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary which looked a great easy sketch until I blocked myself into a corner & out come the colour-coach.  I then re-did a couple of colours as I wasn't too happy with the original take on it.  This is the first time I have done a sketch from here, but they are always have great sketches.

Base Card - Not Quite Navy - 5 7/8" x 4 1/4" or 15cm x 10.5cm - ie once it has been scored in half
Layer 1 - Crumb Cake - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 4" x 1" or 10cm x 2.5cm
Layer 3 - Ribbon
Layer 4 - Not Quite Navy - Large Circle
Layer 5 - Very Vanilla - Smaller Circle

I coloured my ribbon with Crumb Cake Re-Inker & set aside to dry.

Inside Card...

Using Crumb Cake Ink I stamped my image randomly onto the Crumb Cake Cardstock, adhered the DSP to the top of the Crumb Cake.  I wanted to make it look like bubbles coming up from the bottom of the ocean.  I made a mask of the Seahorse from scrap paper & cut it out.  I stamped the seahorse image onto Very Vanilla Cardstock using Garden Green Ink, I attached the mask over the top of the seahorse, using another image & Garden Green Ink, I stamped off twice before stamping over the mask.  I repeated again.  I then inked my image again using Not Quite Navy Ink & stamped over the top twice.

I cut my 2 circles using the Circles Die, adhered the Very Vanilla circle to the Not Quiet Navy Circle & then to the Cumb Cake Piece.  I then ran the ribbon across the middle where the 2 pieces met & tied a bow off-centre.  Using SU Dimensionals, I adhered the whole piece to the Base Card.

With Envelope...

I stamped 3 shell images onto Very Vanilla Cardstock using Baja Breeze & cut them out.  These were applied to the card as per the sketch with the back one being adhered direct to the card while the front 2 were adhered using SU Dimensionals - gotta love these SU Dimensionals.

I repeated my masking for the inside of my card, adhered the Very Vanilla straight to the base card.  The masking was again repeated for my envelope.
