Little Mermaid Cards

Three cards today all measuring 5ins by 5ins and made using white linen effect card.
Mermaid Card 2
I am sure I was a mermaid in another life or if I wasn’t I will be in the next!  These cards are made using hard plastic bubble stickers from Poundworld.
Poundworld Stickers
From one pack I have made  three cards, with a few stickers left over, which is a good return for my money.
Mermaid Card 1
The blue background doesn’t show up very well in the pictures, it’s a glitter card that looks like the sky but which works equally well as the sea. However it is a “bum” to glue anything to …….
Mermaid Card 3
….. so I have used Ranger Glossy Accents to add some extra gumption to the stickers, which has worked very successfully.  The final touches are made using either clear flat backed gems, or sequins with a gem centre.

If you scratch away the glitter with a craft knife it creates a better surface to adhere to - never tried it but have been told. Very pretty card - have a good day x

I saw those cards on your blog a while ago. Today I went shopping (in Germany -- mind you!) and happened to find the very same stickers! :) Of course, I remembered your lovely cards -- I am looking forward to creating some of my own now. Mermaids are just great, aren't they?

Happy creating,
