Instructions: Click here to see the inside pages of this layered card. Construct 6 x 6" layered card then cut designer paper for the front and white cardstock for each back side of each page (sponge edges of all pages). The first page is the largest circle, this is also the cover of the album. 

I stamped the hibiscus flowers and leaves with black ink and then I colored the flowers with the Rose Bud and Fossilized Amber in the middle. I colored the leaves of the flower with Bamboo Leaves. Die cut with coordinating dies, shape using deluxe flower shaping kit, then I glued some Eiskristals in it. 

I also stamped, the coral, a seahorse with black ink on white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies and colored images. I used a quote from the designer paper for the front, cut and matted with another layer of designer paper.

Then on the back of each page I glued a piece of Acetate and Then I put 2 water plants on the back, then I covered the back of the page with white Cardstock to cover the acetate, and you also can glue some items on it like the clear water drops I made them with the Pearl Pen Clear. 

For the second page I cut out an extra circle of the small Circle die set The biggest one with the scallop and the 3th one, if you cut them together you get a frame now glue this on your 2nd page and make dots with the white pearl pen. Stamp, color and cut the jelly fish, put some eiskristals on it and glue him on top of the frame, decorate the page also with those Eiskristals. Put some clear drops on the acetate, and cover the back with the White cardstock.

For the 3rd page, I stamped a fish with gold embossing powder colored, cut it and I put it on the page glue some acetate behind it, then on the back I glued a piece of Coral and then the cover with white cardstock, on top of the acetate some clear drops.

For the 4th page I made another fish, I cut out some shells from the paper and put them on glue dots so that they look 3D, behind it I put a piece of coral then acetate on the back, clear drops and white cardstock on the back.

For the last page I only used a piece of the paper with a nice image, I decorated it with Eiskristals, and clear dots.
