I am on my well deserved holidays with my kids but I wanted to pop in with this fun card to wish you all a “surf” day. I used stamps/dies and stencils from the latest release of Newton’s Nook Designs.
First I stamped and coloured the car from the Beach Bound stamp set with Illustrator markers. I used scissors to cut it out and used a black Memento marker to run around the edges to correct imperfections.
Then I took a piece of white cardstock and stenciled 2 palm trees on it using the Palm Tree Line stencil set. It was very easy to stencil only two trees using a small blending brush. I used Distress Oxide inks but any inks can work. When it was done I used a die from the Circle Frames die set to cut it out and matted it with a slightly bigger green circle which I cut with a die set from Pink ad Main.
I stamped a sentiment from the Beach Bound set on the bottom of the scene, popped up the card with 3D foam squares ad embellished the trees with brown jewels which look like coconut.
For the background I used a pretty paper from the Summertime paper pad, added a green mat to it before adhering it to a kraft card base. I love the layered look. I used a little clear shimmer on the surf board and glossy accents on some parts of the card to make it fancy.
I wish you like my card and will pop in again soon for more. I will share a lot of summer cards after I am back from my holidays.
See you soon,
