This is one of those cards that make you SMILE!
I have to give credit were credit is due, when I was in the beginning stage of creating this card , I wasn’t sure just how to show off this great sea -scape paper….
sitting on my work table was a gorgeous card of a stair step fold, I had received from Brenda Woods , my friend, part of my Stampin Up team, talented artist.

There is a drying time but work on you project enough in advance so this is not a problem. My recommendation is over night or make it several hours in advance. I do not like touching to see if it is dry……could make a mark on your clear shiny finish. So just think ahead and allow your self that time, it will be will worth the wait. LOVELY!!!
I was thinking about how many years I have been buying Crystal effect from Stampin’ Up and if my math is correct it’s been around 8 years and to my knowledge there has not been a price increase in all that time.
Aren’t these Octopus just adorable??? You better say yes, LOL! I think the luster just makes them.
These were tricky to trim in the DEEP curl of the tentacles….follow my little tips and it does help to SNIP SEVERAL TIMES in the area to make it ‘give’. I’ve made 8 of these so you know it couldn’t be that hard or I would not be making so many.
I’ve MADE ONE FOR YOU!!! That’s right, everyone ordering from me for the month of JUNE will receive one of these!
I have 3 Birthdays in June and wait to you see what I came up with for them!
On the back of the larger panel I stamped my verse and signed.
