|Thinking of you Beach card
By Debbie Samples
Designer's Tip: Cut a white cardstock to 11”x4½”. Score in thirds @ 3 5/8” for each section. Glue a 3½”x4½” Seaside fence paper on the left and right panel. Turn the card over with those panels facing the table, and glue a piece to each of the three inside panels. In all of the edges, and folds. Cut three 2¾” squares of Watercolor paper. Stamp one image on each square. Watercolor each of the images. Use an acrylic block to scribble each of the colors you are going to use. Then use a watercolor brush, slightly damp to pick up ink, and paint onto the image. You can blend, and make colors lighter. Once all three are colored, cut each image in to a 2½” circle. (You can trace or use a cutting die. Ink the edges of each circle. Glue the first circle on the card front, ½” from the top, left and the right side. Tape the cutting die lightly in place on the circle. Run through the machine, going back and forth a few times. You can carefully take it out, and run it through the other way. Remove the cutting die. Glue a 3½”x7/8” script stripe from the Seaside stripe paper, on the bottom front. Place Dazzles™ as shown. Place glue on the back of the second circle. Close the first panel, and line the second panel up behind the first one. Holding in place, press onto the second panel. Tape the cutting dies in place, and run the card through the machine, back and forth to cut through all layers. Place glue on the back of the third circle Hold in place behind the second panel, to match the lines and close to stick to the inside back panel. Glue a star stripe along the bottom of all the inside panels.
