One of my favorite places to be is on the beach and I am fortunate to live within an hour or so from the Pacific Ocean. When we go camping, it is usually in that direction, and I can’t get enough of it. I love the sound of the waves crashing, the smell of the salt air and the feel of the sand between my toes. Being there just does something to my very soul. It is a feeling that I cannot explain. It restores, refreshes and revives my energy and creativity in a way that nothing else can! Here is the view we had from our campsite…and I am longing to go back.
And now for the details
I created this card for my August “Clean & Simple” card classes as well as the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #206 which only required the use of patterned paper. This card fits the bill with 3 strips of designer paper from “By the Shore”, a beautiful Stampin’ Up! product. Each strip measures 1.25″ x 5.25″ and is spaced evenly across a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card made from Dapper Denim card stock. I used 3 different sizes of circle punches (shown below) embossed with Seaside Textured Embossing Folder. The 2 fish, seashell, banner and seaweed are all cut by hand with scissors. I used the Confetti Heart Punch and some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the fish bubbles.
I think all of the ladies in class liked it and I hope you do to! Thanks for visiting!
