Another Baby Shark Card

After creating the cutting files for the "Baby Shark" first birthday card I put together a couple weeks ago, I felt the need to make another Baby Shark themed card... for our granddaughter... just because!

This time I created one additional cutting file, for the character, "Pinkfong" and added her to the front of the card together together with a school of tiny fish from Cricut Create A Critter cartridge.

Inspired by Francis Byrne's fun ocean shadowbox card I decided to add a shadowbox in my card too, where I placed Baby, Mommy, and Daddy Shark and friends. Seaweed and coral are from Cricut Life's A Beach cartridge.

 Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside border die was used for the sand and attached to the center strut in the shadowbox together with Baby Shark and a funny crab friend.

I had fun playing with toothbrush style foundation brushes again to apply Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks (Salty Ocean, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio) onto white cardstock for the blended ink deep sea ocean background. After applying the inks, I randomly splashed droplets of water onto the cardstock for the neat splotchy design.

Somehow I missed your last few cards...maybe because I was traveling. I'm caught up with all your fantastic blog creations now. The Baby Shark craze is something new to me. My daughter-in-law sang the theme song for me awhile ago and I am surprised at the exploding popularity of the sharks. Your crafting skills always amaze me!
