Instructions: Card size is 6 x 6". You can take a peek inside each page of this card here. Put the layered circle card together. Choose papers and cut each 6 x 6" paper to fit leaving a small border then cut circle out of the center of each to match the page it is going on (before gluing front cover on to the top, secure a piece of ribbon to make a tie for keeping card closed, same for the back cover). Make circle frames from coordinating paper for each opening except the smallest circle page (you will use the port hole for the frame on this page.  

Stamp all the flowers for the front of card using black ink on white cardstock and die cut. Color using Distress inks Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberries, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade. Shape using the Deluxe flower shaping kit.

Form flowers and glue together then add white Prills to stamen and centers.

Stamp, color and die cut fish, porthole, coral reef and shells using black ink on white cardstock. Color using Copic markers and arrange on desired pages. 

Tear pieces of tan paper for bottom of pages with that have no sand at the bottom already. Stick some eyelash trim under some of the glued on sand. Decorate each page with coral reef, shells, and twine. 

Die cut several scrolly leafy die cuts (from Cut Mat Create) from a green paper out of the Blazing poppy collection. Die cut pockets from a piece of coral paper using the Fleur borders and pockets die. Glue pockets to tops of pages 3 & 4. 

Cut apart and glue pieces of scrolly leafy die cuts throughout card.  Finish with pearls and white Prills at the bottoms of each page. Dye and add gauze to some areas at the bottom of pages. Add pearls throughout card top and bottom (these work well for spacers). Some of the fish and seahorse is popped up with foam tape as well.
