Ready for Some Sunshine!

Hi Friends,
I had a great DistINKtive card class this week at Scrapp's Savvy. We made some fun cards! The weather here in Texas has been warming up and I have had the beach on my mind!  I've been dying to play with Rocky the Crab and all the fun Beach themed dies from Karen Burniston and finally got the chance for this month's class. Isn't he cute?!


Fold card base in half. Diecut Rocky the crab- shadow layer from black, detail layer and shovel from red, eyes and 3 seashells from white. Assemble. Diecut waves from blue cardstock. Diecut sand hills and palm tree hill from tan cardstock. Diecut palm tree from brown and palm leaves from green. Adhere leaves to top of brown tree.

Ink sky with white ink to simulate clouds. Ink sand piece with brown ink and spritz with bronze mist. Scribble some brown Wink of Stella on a craft mat and gently press shells into ink. Draw lines on palm trunk. Color mini palm trees- leaves with green distress marker and trunks with brown distress marker. Clip off small palm from right side of diecut. Color sun with yellow Wink of Stella. Ink waves with blue ink and color wave edges with white ink or white Wink of Stella.

Assemble card. Adhere palm sand layer flush, starting about 2” from bottom. Add second layer on pop dots. Add waves flush with bottom on pop dots on bottom edge only. Add palm tree with pop dots on top of tree. Add sun and sentiment to top of card. Add Rocky on pop dots. Add pail and shells as shown. Add negative of wave piece to top inside of card and small palm tree to bottom right to complete.

Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a great sunny day!

Great card Debra! Rocky looks like he's having a blast at the beach. Great idea to hang the shovel on the pail nail.
