Happy Saturday! What are you up to today? I had a very nice time at my party last night with my peeps, and even slept a little late today. We had some good food and my hummus and fudge (eaten separately!) were a big hit! We also caught the end of one of my favorite movies, Love Actually. I still love it, especially around the holidays, even 10 years later! I have some more sneak peeks for you today. I used one of my favorite sets from the Spring Catalog, it’s called By the Tide* and contains some great sea related items.
The base of my card is Pool Party Card Stock that I stamped with the Netting Background Stamp in Pool Party. I cut out a piece of Sahara Sand with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. Before I adhered it to the card I embossed it with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The shell images are from the By the Tide Stamp Set* and are heat embossed with Versa-Mark and some Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder*. I decided that I would paint some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint over it for a nice shimmery sand like effect. I got the idea from one of the samples in the Spring Catalog. They are cut out with my Paper Snips and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Amazing Family Stamp Set* and is stamped in Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla. I used the Ovals Collection Framelits to round the ends, punched holes in either side and ran a piece of Natural 7/16″ Trim Ribbon* through the holes and adhered it around the back with some Sticky Strip. I love the way the Champagne Mist looks painted over the Pool Party Emossing Powder. The card has a nice beachy feel and would be a perfect masculine card. I hope that you enjoyed my sneak peeks for today and the card. Thank you so much for taking some time to visit me today. Have a great Saturday! 🙂
