This card was created for my brother's wife Connie. They live near the coast so I knew anything with a beach or sea shell theme she would like. I love the JustRite cling sets which match the Spellbinders dies.
On a piece of Very Vanilla paper cut from a Labels Twenty Two #4 die I inked up the "Free Rides" image first by loading it with VersaMark then Close to Cocoa ink. I embossed it with clear embossing powder and a heat gun. Sponging was done in Bashful Blue and Distress Bundled Sage. It was mounted to a piece of Bashful Blue then I added an accent of antique brads.
Kraft paper was stamped with a Cheesecloth background in Whisper White and two jumbo eyelets were set with a piece of rope twine.
The bottom border was created using a Martha Stewart deco shells punch layered with a piece of lace dyed in tea stain.
The inside sentiment was stamped in Close to Cocoa and embossed with clear embossing powder. Seashells were colored in Distress Antique Linen, Creamy Caramel and Blush Blossom.
May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes! Enjoy the rest of your week. I'm linking with Make It Monday.
