Summer is finally here! This card makes me want to head down to the beach for a relaxing day. The stamp sets I used were Colorful Seasons and High Tide. I made a mask of 3 3/4″ x 5″ which is the same as the whisper white layer and taped it with washi tape so it wouldn’t move when I was sponging the sun and the water
The sun was stamped with So Saffron with a very light touch of Pumpkin Pie. I sponged Balmy Blue for the water and then used the water stamp from the High Tide set and stamped over the lighter blue water with Pacific Point. I stamped it full strength and also stamped off.
So Saffron was used to stamp the drink. Instead of stamping the adirondack chair, I decided to cut it out from the Subtles 6 x 6 designer series pack which I think looks really nice. The drink was also cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.
Crumb Cake and Old Olive classic ink were used for the sand and grass. The greeting and sentiment were stamped with Pacific Point classic ink.
This card was a joy to make, and I wish I was sitting in that adirondack chair at the beach sipping on a refreshing glass of lemonade. I think I’ll head out to the beach today!
I’m very pleased with the way this card turned out, and I hope you like it too. Don’t be afraid to hop on over to my blog by clicking on the highlighted title at the beginning of this post, and leave a comment. Also, please share my posts with your friends.
