I have been so busy with my summer class that I have not really had much time to craft. Well, today my class was shortened due to a medical problem with my instructor's family. All we did today was our crayfish dissection and then we got to leave, so I decided to use some of that spare time to craft.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of grey card stock. I cut some light blue card stock at 5 1/4"x4." I used a Darice embossing folder on the blue card stock, it is called Beach Waves. I cut a strip of kraft card stock and covered it with copper glitter for the sand.
The sign is from the Cricut cartridge "H2O." I used the hide contour feature to hide the words on the sign. I stamped the sentiment on the sign, it is three different stamps from Paper Smooches. The "have a" is from the Blossoming Buds set, the "swell" is from the Surf and Turf set, and the "birthday" is from the Sentiment Sampler set.
All the little sea creatures are from the Surf and Turf set by Paper Smooches. I stamped them on white card stock, colored them in, cut them out, and adhered them to the card.
I made this for the following challenges:
Cupcake Inspirations: glitter
BBTB2: use a sign or banner
Die Cuttin' Divas: something you would find in sea or aquarium
Paper Smooches SPARKS: anything goes
