Ocean Themed Projects: Interactive Card Ideas

Still hanging on to the warm summery weather before fall sets in?  You can make some fun and exciting projects with an ocean, beachy them to it.

Ocean Slider Card Template

You can start out by using this freebie kit called, “Ocean Slider Card Template”.  It is very versatile.  You can make interactive activities using it.  Make greeting cards, shaker cards, journal and scrapbook cover embellishments and much more.

The templates are all high quality 300 dpi and comes with both a jpg file which has a white background and a png file, that has a transparent background.  The png file makes it easy for you to upload the template into die cutting software, such as Cricut Design Space so that you can use your machine to die cut the images.  It is very easy to assemble.

To access the kit click here.  Watch the assembly video below to build your slider card.

Supplies You will need:

  • Box cutter / trim knife
  • Ruler or straight edge tool
  • Glue
  • Brad (Optional)

Disclaimer:

Since sharp instruments are used in the assembly process, this project is for adults.  If children participate a permitting adult must be present.

You can add colors, paints, glitter, glossy accents, and all manner of mixed media to decorate your slider card.  Before assembling your template, distress or color your background, water, and whale pieces in the hue you want them. Finally you can assemble it.  The completed project is really cute with added embellishments such as those shown below.

I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art. Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make. Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter. My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on. Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
