Caribbean Cruise Name Plates

     Just got back from the Scrappn' Savvy "Mermazing Cruise". We had soooo much fun. We sailed on the "Liberty of the Seas" out of Galveston to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. 
     We made a mini album in a suitcase with Karrie Allen, we used Copics to color with Becky Morehead, and made pop up cards with Karen Burniston. Other activities were a PJ party and mermaid making party. We had a layout and/or card challenge (which I will be posting later). We were given a bag of goodies to create whatever we imagined. There was a card swap. There were door prizes, a craft store for shopping, and of course, the cruise activities as well.
     A couple of weeks before leaving on the cruise, we received a package in snail mail. It contained a lanyard, a luggage tag, and Karen Burniston's "Princess and Mermaid" die. We were asked to make a tri-fold name plate for our work space on the cruise. The only requirement was that we had to use the Burniston die somewhere on it.
     I made matching name plates for my roommate and me. I used My Colors card stock (Poolside) for the bases. The background paper was a pre-cut sheet that I purchased at Tuesday Morning years ago.

     The shell is a Silhouette file called "Mermaid Card" by Daniela Moscone. The mats are cut from metallic brown paper. The lining of the shell is super unique textured paper I found on the clearance rack at Joann's long ago. I die cut one of Burniston's mermaids and added a pearl. There are two punched holes at the bottom with white ribbon threaded through and tied into a bow.
     I found this FUN font from Silhouette. It is "zp Mermaid Tails" by ScrapNfonts. You may choose which letters have mermaid tails by using lower case. I repeated the orange paper for the mermaid tail and let it hang over the edge of the name plate. The palm tree islands above the letters are leftover die cuts from the swap card. It's always fun to find a handy scrap like that just waiting for a place needing embellishment.
