Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog! The latest from my craft table is a card with a lot of bite. I made this one for my husband’s birthday, but it would be a great kid’s card too.
I love sharks. My favorite toy as a very young child was a stuffed animal shark, so when I saw this stamp set from Newton’s Nook, I knew it was meant for me. This was a jaw-some card to put together. I used colored pencils to color in the shark, and layered the base of the card with five different colors of paper–one of which I daubed on some blue dye ink to indicate sky and clouds.
I got a new toy for this card–the Mini Misti. Love it! Makes stamping a lot easier. For this card I even stamped the inside. The shark fin didn’t stamp dark enough the first time, so all I had to do was re-ink it, and stamp it again. With the Mini Misti I was able to stamp it exactly where I stamped it the first time.
To finish it up, I glued the shark to an action wobbler, so it pops off the card and jiggles–so much fun!
Here’s how the card came together!
