I needed to get creative and make a birthday card for my nephew. When he came to visit this past summer we had so much fun at the beach, so I decided to make that the theme of his card.
I used some 12 x 12 ivory cardstock for the base of the card that I cut to 9 x 8 the scored in half.
Then cut a piece of chocolate brown cardstock 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 then using a 2″ square paper punch I punched three squares in a row. Layered it on top of the ivory card and used my ATG gun to put it all together. I had some funky fiber in my drawer and decided to put a shell that I found on our beach for the perfect accent.
Of course I needed to use my Cricut Expression machine so I found the perfect seagull on the Life is a Beach cricut cartridge and cut it on ivory cardstock and then put Star Dust Stickles all over for a shimmery look.
I still didn’t know what stamp set I was using and as I was going though all of acrylic stamps I found these three images on one sheet. I have no idea who made them or where they came from. All I knew is that they were perfect. I stamped them with Rich Cocoa Memento Dye Ink and Wa-La my card is complete.
Thanks so much for allowing me to share this fun and easy birthday card with you.
~Happy Birthday Ryan~
