We All Live in a Yellow Submarine...

Well, not really! {giggle} I had so much fun as the June Guest Designer at The Rubber Cafe, that I came back for one more month! When I saw the July Creative Cafe Kit, A Whole Water Fun, I knew I had to play along! I love the stamps and the papers, but...with a "punny" title like that, how could I NOT join in?!

I created this cute card with the submarine stamp from the Under the Sea stamp set. I had to add the sentiment from Fun in the Sun add-on set. Get live in a tiny sub and you "wish they were here"?! {giggle} My 13 year old thought it was funny! {grin}

To make this card, visit The Rubber Cafe Blog for a "tiny tutorial"!

I used some Glossy Accents to make the porthole look like it was made of glass. I used a decorative die template that had a water drop shape around the edges. I glued a few of the "water drops" to the main image. 

The dimension is nice, not too thick. I just love the blue paper peeking out from behind the yellow.

I like the font for the sentiment. It's very casual and fun!

I added a white panel to the inside of the card, with a thin strip of the fish scale paper attached to the bottom. I couldn't resist stamping the Under the Sea sentiment at the bottom!

    Adorable! I squealed a little when I saw the water droplets you added to the submarine. And the layered background that looks like bubbles! So fun!

  2. Adorable card, love the die cut front panel letting the paper peek through too. ~Diane
