Scuba Diving Santa Card

Scuba Diving Santa Card

Posted by Kara Pogreba on


Santa Claus is diving deep into the sea to spread holiday cheer to his underwater friends.

Step 1: Ink blend two 4¼ x 5½ white cardstock panels with Distress Oxide inks using a blender brush. One layer will be the background, and the other will be the sea cave opening.

Step 2: Cut out the sea cave opening with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pond die.

Step 3: Use a stiff paint brush to flick on a mixture of water and Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust on both panels.

Step 4: Create the images:

  • Stamp out the images using a Copic friendly ink.
  • Color with Copic markers.
  • Add Glitter Pen details.
  • Die cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Step 5: Create the pull tab:

  • Die cut the slit opening on the back panel two times to create a long slit.
  • Die cut the pull tab mechanism and insert it into the slit from the back of the panel
  • Die cut the notch on the panel where the pull tab meets the bottom edge.
  • Trim the pull tab attachment to fit the Santa die cut image.
  • Die cut and glue the sleeve, slip it around the pull tab, and adhere it to the back of the panel to secure the pull tab.
  • Cut off any extra pull tab at the bottom of the card.
  • Die cut a pull tab handle, as well as the left over notch, adhere them together to the pull tab at the bottom of the panel.
  • Adhere Santa to the mechanism.

Step 6: Add foam tape to the back of the sea cave opening, leaving space for the pull tab to move freely.

Step 7: Adhere the submarine to the sea cave to hide any portion of Santa that is showing.

Step 8: Arrange and adhere the die cut images in and around the cave.

Step 9: Add the sentiment:

Step 10: Adhere the back panel to a top folding notecard.

Pull the tab several times to make sure it moves freely.
