Mermaid Tilda shaker card


I'm back again, this time with a birthday card made for my eldest daughter's fourth birthday at the weekend......can't believe she'll be 4 already and starting school in 2 weeks - where has the time gone?

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. I got quite carried away with embellishing and didn't want to stop adding bits!!

My daughter, Lily, has decided she wants to be a mermaid when she grows up (!) and so I had to use my favourite Tilda mermaid stamp for her card! I decided to make a shaker card and used the fab Marianne die to make the frame and cut out the aperture. I used shaved ice glitter behind acetate to hopefully look like a sparkly sea background!

The shells and starfish were cut from funky foam and coloured with distress inks - I love these little dies and think they look quite realistic!
