Seashore Card

Today we're going to make a seashore card, which can be used for thinking of you, get well, birthday, or actually any occasion. These are fun and easy to make. There isn't a particular technique, so let's get started.

  1. On white cardstock, stamp the seashore stamp (My Paper Moon) about 2/3 of the way down the card.
  2. Color in the rocks and the water with markers or colored pencils.
  3. If desired, you can add some clear glitter glue to the water to give it sparkle.
  4. With a white gel pen, go over some of the water to make waves.
  5. Stamp the seagull stamps in the sky.
  6. With chalk, make clouds.
  7. For the sand at the bottom of the card, I mixed a few drops of a brown reinker with spackling compound until I got the color of sand, then applied to the card.
  8. Embellish with a seashell charm.
  9. Layer on a complementary color of cardstock.
