I Treasure You (Kathy Berger)

I Treasure You
by Kathy Berger

My mom turns 90 today but I can't be with her to celebrate. Since I can't be with her physically, I wanted to let her know I am with her in my heart, so I made what I hope will be a special card for her. She loves the ocean and everything about it, but can no longer get out to visit it, so I thought I would send a little of it to her.

I made this diorama card for her using the various oval ocean dies from Frantic Stamper. On the card front is the Bubble oval. the next layer is the Coral and Seaweed Oval, and the third layer is the Underwater Scene Oval. On the back wall is the Treasure Chest, with the Seaweed and Anemone and the Stag and Pipe Coral around the front of it. Suspended inside between two layers is the Deep Sea Diver.

Decorating the front of the card are the left and right facing Sea Horse Edgers, the shell and pearl from the Shell Shape and Shell aand Pearl set. The words come from two accessory word sets and from the Treasure Stamp Matchers.

Every element is painstakingly colored with Copic markers. The fish and the treasure are nicely sparkly thanks to a layer of Wink of Stella. The bubbles in the Undersea Oval die have a bit of Glossy Accents to give them dimension and a bit of shine. This card took about twelve hours to put together, every one of them filled with love and best wishes for a special day for mom.

Thanks for coming by!

  1. Spectacular. So glad there are others out there that spend lots of time putting together their cards. I thought is was only me that took so much time with each of my cards.
