Birds Eye View

Hello Memory Box friends. I just can't get enough of this new Ocean themed release. I mean really....look at these birds! I live in Florida, I see these birds daily out my back door.

Truth be told the Sandhill Crane (lower right on card) are very noisy and I could do without those!  :)


Let me show you how I put this together:


Start with White cardstock trimmed to 4.25 x 5.50 inches. Blend all around with Evergreen Bough Distress ink, flick water and let dry.

Die cut with Underwater Collage.

Adhere a small scrap of cardstock inked with Tumbled Glass to back of opening.



To make the top layer, trim white cardstock 4 x 5.25 inches, blend with Peacock Feathers Distress ink, flick water across panel and let dry.

Die cut this panel with Underwater Collage also, but give the die a 180 degree turn. Adhere to card front with foam adhesive.

Die cut Flying Gulls and Elegant Shorebirds from White cardstock and adhere as shown. 




Finally, die cut Lavender Bunch, Seaweed Ribbons and Oceanside Lighthouse and Waves from White cardstock. Color as desired and adhere to card front. As you can tell, I had to get a little glitz on this card, so I added some glitter to the "wave".

Add Glossy Accents drops around the card and let dry.


Happy Crafting,




This is SO pretty! I love the layers of color and the white silhouettes.

What a fab card love the effect you created with the flicked water i really willhave to give it a try and the white birds are stunning in contrast to the coloured backgrounds love it and thank you for sharing.

Beautifully done Penny but good to know about the Sandhill Crane, (I've never heard of them) but if they are noisy, I wouldn't like them either. haha

A beautiful card, Penny! A very creative, outside the box, use of the underwater collage die. Thank you for the amazing inspiration today.

Brilliant idea to turn the Underwater Collage panel #2 180 degrees- like another die then! Love your card.
