Well now, we are half way through the week, I’m not sure about you but the weekend will not be here soon enough for me. Lucky for me tomorrow (Thursday) is my Friday, as I have the real Friday as vacation day, yeah!
Do you hear the beach calling your name? It sounds a lot like what you hear when these stamps are calling to you. Answer all the calls! High Tides is a Two-Step Photopolymer Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to create the final image you want in the colors you want. Pair this with the chair from Seasonal Layers Thinlits and a greeting from Sunshine Wishes and you are all set for a great card.
Today I thought I would share a beach themed shaker card I made. It’s been a while since I made a shaker card and I sure do love a good shaker card. This one is made a little different as I stamped the images first then die cut the opening, providing depth to the card.
For my card, using a pencil and oval from the Layering Oval Framelits, I made small dots at the top/bottom/sides of the oval where I would be die cutting, then using stamps from the High Tide Photopolymer stamp set completed the scene with sand, sea grass, water, a lighthouse and seagulls. Next I die the cut oval and adhered the cut out to a mat made from a piece of paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, making sure to center the front piece on the mat. A piece of Window Sheet was added to main Whisper White stamp front piece, then Foam Adhesive Strips added to create the “shaker” depth. Sequins are from my stash from Pretty Pink Posh. To finish the card I added a chair die cut from the same Wood Texture paper used for the mat adhered to the front and added a cold beverage to the arm of the chair. Greeting is from Sunshine Wishes.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try making cards.
Have a great day – Craft On!
