Card Challenge

I’ve made a card inspired by a challenge I found on The Paper Players and the colours in the MFT Colour Challenge:-


I’ve gone for the congratulations/graduation thing and recently bought a new stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn which I’ve been dying to use. I also have an older Lawn Fawn set that was apt for this challenge so have combined the two and come up with this:-


I haven’t made a shaker card in a while; I went for the whole ‘under the sea’ thing considering the colours available.

I stamped and die cut the shark, scroll and graduation cap then coloured them in with Promarkers. I made a little cut in the shark’s fin for the scroll and  one in the graduation cap so I could fit it onto the shark’s dorsal fin.


I used blue cardstock for the frame and background and on the background I used stamps from another Lawn Fawn set. I added some ‘bubbles’ using some 3D clear pearl effects. I fitted everything together adding blue and green sequins and added a die-cut sentiment.


I added a stamped sentiment on the inside of the card just to finish it off.


That’s pretty much it – I also included this on Simon Says Stamp’s ‘Anything Goes‘ challenge too. 


I like how this one turned out 🙂

  1. I like the clever way you’ve given the shark a scroll and cap. The humour fits the punny sentiment perfectly. Love those clear pearly bubbles! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.
