Designer’s Tip: Use a square seaside stamp to repeat stamp the image and create a border. Line up the edges of the stamp with the previously stamped image.
- Place the card fold on the side and glue 4 ¾”x6 ¼” light blue cardstock to the card center. Stamp 1 ¾” x 6 ¼” strip of orange cardstock with Seaside square circle pattern stamp and brown ink, repeating the pattern on the long sides of the cardstock. Ink orange cardstock edges, brown and glue even with the left side of the blue cardstock. Stamp the wavy image using ripe persimmon on ¾”x6 ¼” kraft cardstock. Ink edges and glue down the center of the orange cardstock strip. Stamp the seashell border, using salt ocean ink, on ½”x6 ¼” kraft cardstock. Ink edges and glue down the blue cardstock, 1/8” from the right edge.
- Cut 1 ¼” wide strip of white cardstock. Stamp the coral image and sun image evenly spaced on the white strip, using ripe persimmon ink. Cut the coral to 1 5/8” and the sun to 1 3/8”. Stamp the sea grass image using salty ocean ink and cut to 2 1/8” tall. Ink edges brown and foam tape each piece to kraft cardstock, with a 1/8” mat. Foam tape, overlapping on the card as shown.
- Open the card and make a small cut in the fold, ¾” from the card bottom. Thread a length of orange Jute Twine and wrap around the card front twice. Tie a bow on the right side of the card. Die cut 9 Little Words “Thanks” from kraft cardstock and ink edges brown. Glue to the card as shown.
