Hello My Crafty and Stamping Friends.
I have made this birthday card for my dad-in-law using the new Moving Forward stamp set from Stampin’ Up. Besides the fact that this set is really fun, it gets even better, because when you purchase this stamp set, Stampin’ Up donates part of the purchase price to support the Ronald McDonald House charities.
So you have fun stamping while helping a charity – I love it!
The stamp set has a bicycle (which I used), sail boat and a blimp (balloon), also with some sentiments.
In this card I used alot of supplies that are in my craft room. The seagulls were cut using the Cricut Expression machine with the Life is a Beach cartridge.
Palm trees was made with a paper punch from punch bunch for the palms and the base was cut freehand on a piece of kraft cardstock and with the side of a Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad just brushed against lightly to get the look of a trunk of the tree.
I live on an island in north Florida and so many people ride there bicycles on the beach so since my dad-in-law visited and loved that idea I made him the beach theme card.
All I did to make the layers of the sand and ocean was I just used the torn paper look (really just tear the piece of cardstock) to get an uneven look. I then added some glitter for the glistening sand.
Wishing my Dad-In-Law a Very Happy Birthday!
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
