Instructions: Card size: 6 1/4 x 6 1/4". Use the shadow box that comes with the 6 x 6 foldout cards and construct the box without gluing it yet. Use some foam between the layer tabs at the bottom of the box to keep them apart for display. Cover the back with decorative Under the Sea Paper (6 1/8 X 6 1/8") Make sure to put it on going the right direction when box is closed. Cut decorative paper for the front, sides and back of box. To cut the opening, place the front paper inside front and trace the opening onto it then hand cut. Glue front and side on, set aside the paper for the back.

Stamp using black, coral x 3, shells, fish, and plant life (Rain Boots and Blossoms & Backyard Blossoms) on white, die cut and color. Stamp flowers using Buttercup, Tiger Lily, Deep Purple, Magenta Hue and Rose Madder. Sponge with the same colors and create center colors mixing and matching ink colors above. Die cut and start the shaping in the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold. While still damp, pinch creases in petals created by the mold just to deepen them. Glue 2 different sizes together except small flowers which are singles then add Prills to centers and stigma. Stamp, sponge and die cut leaves using Fern Green and Leaf Green.

Glue coral to the front bottom and sides and cut off excess from 1 side (save it). Glue sand color card stock, shells, more coral to the bottom, divided layer tabs. Glue plant life mainly on the sides of opening and a little on the back layer.

Stamp sentiment onto decorative water paper then circle cut. Cut a white mat a little larger, then glue them together and glue to the back water scene. Pop up fish around the sentiment. Apply Nuvo drops as bubbles on the background coming from the coral and the fish.

Re-construct box now gluing the back tabs onto the back of the back scene. Cover with set aside 6 1/8 x 6 1/8" decorative paper (or plain white cardstock). Once glue is set, decorate the top of box with the leaves and flowers. Glitter all the flowers, add pearls around in coral and in shell. Use Nuvo Shimmer brush on the fish.
