Global Design Project #172-Valentine's Day Octopus

I decided to branch out and submit an entry into the Global Design Project #172 challenge, CASE the designer #GDP172.
(CASE=Copy and Selectively Edit) 
Below is the sketch from the designer, Shawn De Oliveira, that we are CASEing.

With my Valentine's Day Cards classes beginning next week, I thought it would be appropriate to design a card with a Valentine's Day theme, thus swimming in is my Valentine Octopus! What you can't see from this picture is that my octopus is mounted on a spring or wobble so he bounces back and forth!
Tips an Tricks:
Card stock sizes:  
  • Basic Grey 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 2 ¾” strips to cut net, Balmy Blue 4” x 5 ¼”, Whisper White 5” x 3 ¾”, Smoky Slate 2 ¾” strips for octopus and sand dollars, Real Red 1 ¾” x 8 ½” strips
  • The Balmy Blue was embossed with the Seaside embossing folder and shimmered up with Wink of Stella.
  • I cut the net in a rough heart shape.
  • On this card I stamped the octopus on Whisper White with Smoky Slate, but have decided he looks better stamped on Smoky Slate with Smoky Slate ink.
  • Of course I had to add the hearts left from the heart strip that was adhered across the bottom to each of his tentacles.
Below is the inside of the card:

This card is going to my 2-year-old grandson on Valentine's Day, and that is why I chose this sentiment-So Many of My Smiles Begin With You!
