Slice "Under the Sea" workshop

 I am having my BFF's over on the 23rd to make cards, all with something cut from the Slice cartridge "Under the Sea." We all have Slice machines, but this is the only cartridge we all have in common. So, we thought we would get together for a Slice workshop. Each person has to bring her Slice machine and cartridge. I am responsible for all of the card designs and the prep work for making the cards.  I love doing this with them, because it gives me an opportunity to go through my stash and use different items. I get to be creative and make about 10 cards that they will each get to make too.

So, I am a little behind on getting started, but I completed the first one today. I thought I would post it and then add the others as I make them.

I think that I will change the color of the embossing powder to a darker color for the font on the front of the card. It says Happy Birthday and shows up OK on the card, but not in the picture.

 I used Echo Park 6x6 Splash paper for the waves/water. The clouds were stamped with Pink by Design cloud from the "Fly Away With Me" set and then embossed. I also stamped felt (with a sticky back) and then cut out the 3 clouds to give the clouds some depth. The Happy Birthday stamp is Humorous Birthday's by Inkadinkado. The sun is from a decorative paperclip. I took the paperclip off of it and then put stickles around it. The sale boat is cut from the Slice machine using the "Under the Sea" cartridge.  I cut it out 4 times, once for each color at 3". Then I added baker's twine around the two sales and ribbon on the top edge of the boat. I used glitter paper for the flag and punched out a 2 and a 1 for the sail. The boat and the two top pieces of wave paper are popped up.  The inside of the card is done with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One die and I printed the words "Hope your day is smooth sailing" from my computer.

This card has been entered into the following challenge: Paper Playtime summer challenge
