 There are so many fabulous products in the new Mini Catalogue it was difficult to choose which one to showcase. Living close to the beach, I love all things beach and ocean themed so when I saw the Seas The Day Bundle, I knew I had to have it!

My project for today is a Trifold Window Card which lends itself perfectly for my underwater scene.

For my card base I used a piece of Basic White cardstock 29.7cm x 14.85cm scored at 9.9cm and 19.9 cm.

I used my Blending Brushes with Crumb Cake ink for the lower part and Coastal Cabana ink for the upper part to create my background scene on the card front. I stamped the 'sand' with 2nd generation Crumb Cake using a stamp from the Seascape stamp set.

I repeated this for the centre and back panel of my card. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the seagrass so that I could position the images in the exact same place on both panels. This ensured that there was a seamless crossover of images when the card is lying flat and standing.

Next I die cut the front panel using the fabulous detailed die from the Seas The Day Bundle. Then I cut the middle panel opening using the Layering Diorama Dies.

I then stamped and die cut my underwater creatures and adhered them to the 3 card panels.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment on Basic White Cardstock with Coastal Cabana ink. I punched this out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and layered it onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock punched with the 1 1/2" circle punch.

I finished my card front with some of the gorgeous Faux Seaglass Shapes embellishments.

 All products used are available to purchase in my Online Shop here.
