Fin-tastic Mermaid Tail

The card base is called Trapezoid Card Base, from SVG Cutting Files.  I used the "Everyday Paper Dolls" cartridge for the sand.

The waves were created using the "Give a Hoot" Cricut cartridge.  I used the slice and weld features of Cricut Design Space to make the wave shaped mats and cut them out of light blue card stock and vellum.  I used wild honey and orange marmalade Distress Ink on the edge of the yellow mat to give it a sunset appearance.

 The seaweed is from the "Pirates and Mermaids" cartridge.

The mermaid is also from SVG Cutting Files, it is one of the Mermaid Tails cut file.  I embossed the tail with one of the Animal Print embossing folders by Cuttlebug and the fin of her tail with the Herringbone embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Under the Sea stamp set by Jaded Blossom.  

The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the Supersize Birthday Greetings stamp set and the fish is from the Fish On stamp set.  Both are also from Jaded Blossom.

I made this for the following challenges:
SVG Cutting Files: summer theme
Just Us Girls: vellum
