Sea Monster!

Being a fan of pop up cards, I've been waiting for an opportunity to make the sea monster card from the Simple Pop Up Cards cart and here it is! 



Every year I challenge myself to make a card with a turtle in the design for my DSIL's birthday and this little guy from Stretch Your Imagination is one of my favorite images. I layered him to the corner of the 'Just Keep Swimming' sentiment from Animal Antics and added some light green gems hoping they would look like bubbles.  Since the sea monster's tentacles extend beyond the card, I placed the turtle slightly beyond the edge too.  I love the monochromatic look of this card with its pops of color.  : )



Here's the pop up sea monster in the middle of the card.  I cut the inner sentiment in the inside layer instead of writing it.  Still can't decide if that was a good choice or not!




I remember being scared silly as a child after reading John Wyndham's "The Kraken Wakes."  My dad was an avid sci-fi reader and I used to read his library books when he'd finished them - and sometimes, to his annoyance, while he was in the middle of reading one!   (I kept moving or losing his bookmarks, and couldn't resist telling him what was going to happen.)  

Thanks for visiting with me today. : )  Christine

  1. I had a feeling my comment from the other day never got posted. Something gliched. Anyhow, good to see you creating and sharing, and this card is so cute. I sent you an email re the Son-tastic card, when you get a chance. Thanks. Hope all's well.
