Here we go again, back to Monday. How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was good, I got all of my projects finished! I watched a movie, spent time with my friends and the child. It was a very productive weekend and those are my favorite kind. It’s supposed to rain here today but I’ll be at work so it’s all good.
Today I have a birthday card that I made for one of my co-workers. Nicole loves the beach and actually lives quite close to it on the north shore of Long Island. Because of that I felt some seashells would be a good addition to the card. The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I tore the bottom of the front panel of Costal Cabana and also tore another piece that I adhered underneath, I thought it gave the illusion of waves. The shells are stamped in Costal Cabana from the By the Seashore Stamp Set on Crumb Cake. A little work with my Paper Snips and I adhered them to the bottom. The greeting is from the now “Vintage” Beautiful Birthday Stamp and is stamped in Early Espresso so it stands out a little better. I used the new Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set to give the effect of sand on the bottom of the inside that peeks out. Nicole loved the card and I was impressed that I was able to tear the card stock, I have a big aversion to doing that but I like the effect! Thank you for stopping by to see what I’m up to, I appreciate your visit and comments. I wish a very happy Monday! 🙂
