Mermazing Holiday Wishes

Today's post is for Happy Little Stampers and I used this cute little Mermaid scene that was pieced together using digital stamps from Craftin' Desert Divas.

This is a 5 x 7 card and has quite a few layers. The images were all colored with pencils and light blue ink was blended onto the background.

The biggest challenge was placing all the clam-shell presents in the background...much easier to do that with physical stamps vs digital stamps in the humble opinion of this non computer savvy person, lol.  I then muted the background by adding a layer of patterned vellum over top and popping up that top layer using foam tape for dimension.

So, another card down to add to my holiday card are your holiday cards coming along?
Until next time~


  1. I totally relate with you on that computer savvy issue. This is a very cute card

  3. This is too cute for words. I LOVE it!! Of course I was a mermaid in another life... I love everything mermaid. This is special.

  4. I see that a great Christmas party is being prepared in the depths :-) Your coloring of all elements is beautiful. Mussels and crabs look so sweet. The addition of vellum makes the card take a lot of lightness. Great card

  5. Such a different Christmas design, I love it!
