Create a "Just Keep On Swimming" Encouragement Card

Mango Madness! What a fun ink color name huh? It makes an even better color of the month to help welcome in the summer. As I was thinking about a project to share for April, I instantly thought of these darling little fish from Stamptangle and a fun underwater scene. VersaMagic’s Mango Madness was the perfect foundation for it all.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 Minutes + dry time


Step 1

Sponge VersaMagic in Mango Madness on white cardstock roughly the size of 3 of the fish.

Step 2

Stamp one large and one small fish with VersaFine Clair in Nocturne over the inked cardstock. Ink the small fish stamp with VersaFine Clair Nocturne and stamp on the craft mat.

Step 3

Place a piece of Mango Madness cardstock face down over the stamped image and burnish. The result is a perfect reverse image of the original.

Step 4

Add colorful highlights using Memento Dual-Tip Markers. Stamp underwater foliage using VersaMagic in Mango Madness, VersaFine Clair in Verdant and Rain Forest. Fussy cut all images and set aside.

Step 5

Construct a window card using a light blue cardstock and a piece of Vertigo film; adhere the film to the card using Tear It Tape. Adhere all images to the front and inside portions of the card using On Point Glue. Apply rub-on letters to form the sentiment. Finish off the card by applying dots of Wedding Dress irRESISTible Pico Embellisher as bubbles.
