 - how I made it:
* first printed 'Serena' out on white cardstock (8 small and 2 big) and colored her with my markers

- skin: 0729 + 12
- tails and tops: 67 + 63 (aqua), 87 + 89 (pink), 82 + 84 (purple)
- dolphins: WG1 + WG5
- hair: 22 + 24 (ginger), 35 + 36 (blond), 94 + 97 (light brown), 97 + 92 (dark brown)
- eyes (only the ginger mermaid): 47
* then I fuzzy-cut all the mermaids and added glitterpen 

* I made the card-bases and a base for a post-it-note-holder and a 'box' for the cards and envelopes in the dark blue cardstock
* cut the designer paper to size and added the fancy corners and glued it to the bases
* die-cut the squares out of the aqua, purple, pink and light blue cardstock and embossed it with the scales
* attached the mermaids with 3D-dots to the squares and attached that to the designer paper with some foam-tape (the one for the bookmark is just glued on)
* added the waves and decorated with flowers and pearls
