Instructions: To make this 6" x 6" card, first make your basic 6" x 6" card out of White card stock layering the front and inside with designer paper from the Under the Sea Paper Collection cut 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". The fish bowl could be either made flat, popped out or made to open. I decided to make it open by taking one fishbowl that I drew and placing it upside down on the top of another one and cutting it out. For the template I used click here.
To decorate the fish bowl first start with creating a sandy bottom. This was accomplished by cutting a wavy piece of white card stock from the template, stamping it with Versamark and heat embossing it with Black Opal embossing powder. The sea grass in the fishbowl was created by fussy cutting the Under the Sea Coral Cling Stamp Set which was was stamped on white cardstock with Expresso Truffle and cut with the matching die and then colored with Cracked Pistachio Distress Marker. The colorful fish was created by stamping the Under the Sea Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock with Expresso Truffle and cut with the matching die and then colored with Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Markers as well as Abandoned Coral Distress Ink before finishing it off with some Crystal Stickles. I also used my flower shaping tools to give the fish some dimension before gluing to the center in the fishbowl. The small sea shells are cut using the matching die from the pre colored images in the Under the Sea Paper Collection. Finally, layer all your elements as shown and add a little lace and bling and a ribbon sentiment from the Paper collection and rounded on each end to finish the card off!
