Under the Sea

The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge is Under the Sea!  How fun is that for a Summer Theme!!  

This time our challenge is sponsored by Cutting Cafe who provided us with Mixed Shapes Album Book and Under the Sea Printable Stamp Set.  The Album Shapes are perfect for a wonderful journal/book, but I decided to go a different direction to make a card using 2 of the page shapes.  This was a fun way to show some Sea themed paper from behind!

I simply welded the two book shapes together in Cricut Design Space and added the score line.  While I was in DS, I added a border to the right inside of the card and printed the adorable little Cutting Cafe blow fish flattened onto a circle along with a few more circles in the same border paper. (That paper is from my Polkadoodles stash.)  

The M-Bossabilities embossing folder is actually flowers, but I thought these flowers looked a little like underwater seaweed, coral, and such.  Assembly was easy as I adhered circles and the Copic colored fish and it was done!  

This little cutie is swimming off to the following challenges:
