Instructions: This card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/4" x 11", scored it at 5 1/2" and then folded it in half to create the base of my card. I cut a piece of the patterned paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered that to the base of my card. I stamped the porthole onto gray cardstock using black ink and die cut it with the matching die. I stamped the fish image onto a scrap of watercolor paper and colored it with my watercolor pencils. Then I used a sparkle marker over the fish to make it really sparkly!

To create the flowers, I stamped the flower images into versamark ink and then into a peach ink and then stamped it onto my white paper. I combined some clear embossing powder with diamond glitter and sprinkled that over my flowers and heat set it. After die cutting the flowers, I used a sponge and sponged on some of the peach ink. Shape the flowers using the deluxe flower shaping kit and add the prills to the centers.

Stamp the coral image onto the green patterned paper and emboss it with the glitter/embossing powder mixture. After heat setting it, die cut with matching die. Time to assemble the card. I added some 3d foam squares to the port hole and adhere into place. Adhere the fish in the middle of the porthole. Adhere the coral using 3d foam squares and add the flowers. Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock and punch out. Add the sentiment onto the card as shown!
