Turn the embossed Waves 3D design sideways and build a wavy seagrass background for the Deep Sea Octopus.  The irregular offcut from the End of My Rope die set creates a watery background for another Under the Sea design.  Freeform shapes, a peachy octopus and blue seagrass can add a summery look to everyday greetings.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another way to use the popular Waves 3D Embossing Folder - horizontally and embossed with iridescent glitter.

Cut a turquoise 6x6 sheet from the Fresh Aqua Collection with the large End of My Rope die.  Save the rope frame for another project - we're using the offcut here.  Brayer VersaMark onto the top section of the Waves 3D Embossing Folder. Pressure-emboss the offcut with the VersaMark-ed embossing folder using the plate(s) required for your machine.

Heat-emboss the offcut with Imagine's Iridescent powder for clear, sparkly highlights.

Splatter specks of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz on the right edge of a natural A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Set it aside to dry.

Cut Deep Sea Octopus from a dark pink/coral 6x6 sheet in the Berry Red Collection.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eye cutout.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp and Die Set - on natural cardstock with Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair.  Trim it with the coordinating die. 

Assemble the card and add some adhesive jewels to the areas of the background that weren't Versa-Marked.  Add a jewel to the greeting too.
