One part of my card that I’m sharing today I CASEd from a sample on page 166 in the 2022-23 Annual Catalog (which you can also see in the online store with the Chic Dies). I loved the focal point of that card, but wanted to pair it up with a more relaxed background with the look of the beach.
Products I used… a complete list of products I used is shown below, and everything is linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Basic White Cardstock
- 4-1/4” x 11″ scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”
- Scraps for stamping and die-cutting shells
- Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
- 4-1/8” x 5-3/8”
- Basic Black Cardstock
- 3/4” x 2-1/4”
- 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″
- Distressed Gold Specialty Paper
- Scrap for die-cutting layer
- Use the Blending Brushes in a light-handed circular motion to add the ink colors Soft Suede, Crumb Cake & Coastal Cabana to the watercolor paper layer to create a beach scene. It might help to start off the paper, too so your color is softened a bit before coming onto the paper. And because the paper is textured, you will get a “watercolory” look without watercoloring.
- Stamp the inside and outside sentiments with VersaMark into onto the Basic Black Cardstock. Add the Gold Emboss Powder, tap off the excess, and heat with the Heat Tool to emboss.
- Stamp and die-cut two shells. Add a few Iridescent Pearls to each.
- Die-cut the “mesh” from the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper.
- Add the beach layer to the card base with Seal. Place the mesh, shells and thinking of you layer where they look best. Then add the shells to the mesh with Seal and the sentiment layer with Dimensionals. Add Seal only on the backside of the mesh where the shells and sentiment layer are and add it all to the card.
- Finish by adding the inside sentiment layer to the inside of the card.
I hope you enjoyed what I had to share today. In Minnesota, we are on our last warm month of the year and trying to take it all in. August is precious month indeed.
