Layered collage diecuts create an Under the Sea scene for three Sea Creatures on a short slimline trifold card.  There's just enough space for the beachy trio - and some glittery background accents.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with an any-occasion summer design - or even a Father's Day card for the Dad who loves the sea.

Cut aqua cardstock to 6-¼ x 10-½".  Score it at at 3-½" and 7" - but don't fold it yet.  Cut Kelp Collage from the first panel on the left.  Cut Bubble Coral Collage from the backside of the center panel. Fold and crease the card to create a trifold.

Blend Distress Oxides on smooth white cardstock - peacock feathers, cracked pistachio, wilted Violet and shaded lilac were used here.  Dry the inks.  Spritz the cardstock with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Air-dry it for a few minutes, then heat-set all of the inks.  Cut an assortment of Sea Creatures - we're just using three here.  Save the others for future projects - you never know when you'll need a purple dolphin or teal stingray!

Cut an extra set of Sea Creatures from the cardstock used for the card.  Attach the inky turtle to the first panel, then align and attach the uninked turtle to the backside of the collage for extra support  and a neater look.  Attach the inky shark to the backside of the center panel (the front of the collage) and attach the uninked piece to the backside of the collage.  The "thinking" part (back, front, etc.) of the card is done...the rest is easy!

Attach the uninked fish to the remaining inked diecut for dimension, then attach it to the third panel.  

Cut the kelp from the Kelp Collage from the chartreuse Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad sheet.  Cut the short coral from the Coral and Kelp Ribbon from the violet glitter pad sheet.  Attach them to the third panel.  Add a greeting or note to the backside of the third panel so it doesn't appear in the collage.
