Hi everyone! AmyR here to share this fun floating shaker card I made using Honey Bee’s Ocean Borders stamp set along with the mermaid from the Swimming By set.

I created the background with the Ocean Borders stamp by heat embossing it onto some Bristol Smooth card stock with Nuvo Clear embossing powder. I then smooshed several different Distress Inks onto a craft mat, sprayed them with water and pressed the embossed paper into it multiple times.

For the mermaid and turtle I stamped those onto more Bristol Smooth card stock, this time with Hero Arts Intense Black ink. I watercolored them in with Clean Color Real Brush markers, then added some shimmer to the mermaid with a Sakura Glitter Gelly Roll pen.

I die cut the Ocean Borders background with the largest die from Honey Bee’s A2 Double Stitch Frames Honey Cuts dies and used the outside frame to create my shaker. I stamped the sentiment onto the transparency with Stazon Cotton Ball white ink, and then I suspended the mermaid in the frame with some nylon thread before adding my sequins.

I finished the inside of the card by stamping the mermaid with a couple of the same Distress Inks I’d used on the front of the card, then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with the black ink and that was it!
