Under the Sea-Blog Hop-PPPR

 Hi and welcome to the Under the Sea blog hop for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.. You should of arrived here from Michelle's blog, but if you just stopped by and want to join, just click HERE to get the beginning of the hop line up..

We are all creating projects using the fun files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store..

I decided to have fun and created a shaped card using the sand castle from the "Day at the Beach" cutting file..
Here is my card:

It is really easy to create any shape card with any cutting file you like..
I used my Silhouette Cameo and once I had my shapes ready, I created the shadow for the background, copied it and then flipped the image.. bringing them together at the sides and welding the two shadows together..

How about a few close ups:
I added some stickles in various colors to highlight parts of my card.

I created the sentiment by adding some text to one of the cloud, doing the print option and then cutting around the edge, this way it won't cut the text out..

Here you can see how their's a lot of layers to my card,
 I love using foam tape on all of my projects.

The files I used to create by card:
sandcastle, bucket and shovel, shells and sun
