Stampin’ Up! has so many great foliage dies that I find so much fun to layer and layer and layer. I wanted to create an under the sea vignette with lots of colors. The first thing to do is compile a color palette. And this is the one I chose.

Next up, gather up some dies: Smooth Sailing, Forever Flourishing, Dandy Wishes, Shark, and Boho Indigo dies. Take a look at your die collection. I am sure you have foliage dies that will work for this design.

Here is the card.

Colorful Seabed plants


Emboss the front of a 4-1/4″ x 11″ (scored at 5-1/2″) Thick Basic White cardstock card base with the Seabed 3D embossing folder.

Cut a 2-1/2: x 3-1/2″ panel from Pacific Point pattern in the Brights Designer Series Paper 6″ x 6″ Assortment. I am using a Sneak Peek DSP that will be in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Cut a 2-5/8″ x 3-5/8″ frame from Pacific Point cardstock.

Die-cut lots of foliage from the color palette cardstock plus some die-cut from Vellum.

Stamp and heat emboss an underwater creature. I chose the seahorse from Seaside Notions stamp set. Stamp with white craft ink, add white embossing powder and heat emboss the image. Fussy cut.

Layer and tuck until you are pleased with your underwater vignette. Wrap with white Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon and tie a bow. Add the panel to the card base with Dimensionals. Include an embossed sentiment if desired.

I hope you like this Under the Sea colorful card. This riot of color brightens my day and I hope it brightened yours. And I believe that the Seabed 3D embossing folder is the showstopper background.
