Mirabelle Mergirl 50th Birthday Pop Up Box Card

Just a quickie from me this evening. It was a very dear friend's 50th Birthday recently and she's a fellow crafter, so I thought I'd best make a card as a shop bought one just wouldn't do!

I decided to use the Mirabelle decoupage pad and papers to create the box. It's a lovely collection but my only criticism of it is that it focuses on the characters and then lacks things like sentiments.

I used a Spellbinders Foliage Die to create the seaweeds and found some plastic seashells which I coloured with my Graph'It Markers and then covered with Stickles Glitter Glue.

The verse on the front is from Stampotique and the fish have been taken from Terri Sherman's Marina.

Thanks for stopping by today.
