It Just Has to Gel

One of the cards we made in class recently is a gel card using the new SU set, Seaside Shore. It's been many years since I made a gel card but I hadn't forgotten how much fun they are - just love squishing the gel around and moving the bubbles!

Here's our card:

Clear hair gel was squirted into a zip lock plastic bag and manipulated to sit over the size window we used, then we double-mounted the embossed piece to allow for the depth. The porthole piece was made using two circle framelits and attached with silver brads. Luckily my ladies didn't seem to mind the fussy cutting of the fish and seaweed!

Here's a close up; hopefully you can see the bubbles in the gel. If you make one, push them around with your fingers - it is so much fun!

Materials used:
  • stamps - Seaside Shore
  • card - early espresso, crumb cake, smoky slate, whisper white, By the Shore DSP
  • other - markers, scissors, mounting tape, silver brads, circles framelits, Big Shot, woodgrain embossing folder, sponge dauber, zip lock bag, hair gel, paper piercer

Thanks for stopping by.
