Are you a fan of the Beatles?? I created this card today and all I could think of was the Beatles song "Yellow Submarine." So the song wouldn't be stuck in my head for days, I created the inside sentiment using lyrics from the song.
I love the submarine from "Life's a Beach" .... unfortunately, I don't have that cart. :( So I used the LAB sub as a guide to make my own... using Boys Will Be Boys. The rear propeller is the propeller from the helicopter (cut at 2"). The body of the sub is a football (cut at 4" W x 1.89") the striped yellow body is from the squirt gun (cut at 4"). The scope part of the submarine is put together using a hammer head (periscope) at 1 1/4" , the letter "I" cut at 2.44" T x .94" W and a rounded square sized to 1 1/4". The little port holes were the easiest part, they're just circles sized to 1/2".
I inked the pieces using orange and black ink to give them a shaded look. I almost always add some doodling for character. I covered the port holes with Glossy Accents.
The waves were cut using Heidi Grace paper scraps.
The measurements were:
the tallest wave (from ZooBallo) was cut at 2" x 5 1/2"
the middle wave (from Everyday Paper Dolls) cut at 1 1/4" x 5 1/2"
the smallest wave (from ZooBallo) cut at 1" x 5 1/2"
I inked all the waves (and the sky) with royal blue ink and a finger dauber. Once assembled, I traced the waves and card layer with Stardust Stickles.
I added a few of these cute dark blue self-adhesive rhinestones to add some more sparkle. I love to add embellishments like these in threes.
Here is the inside sentiment. I printed it onto white card stock using Pea Shelia font at 14 points.
