Happy Birthday Dad

January 4, 2019

My Dad celebrated his birthday on Wednesday, the same day as my Mum, and today I am sharing the card I made for him.  I have to let you in on a little secret, the card on page 145 of the Annual Catalogue was so pretty that I was driven to purchase the Sea of Textures stamp set and the co-ordinating Under the Sea Framelites Dies.  However, it has taken me until now to re-create this beautiful card.  I started by placing post-it-notes across the centre of Whisper White card.  I used my Aqua Painter and Crumb Cake ink to create the sandy area of the card.  I removed the post-it-notes and replaced them to cover the sand.  I stamped the sea image from the High Tide stamp set across the top of the sand using Bermuda Bay ink.  I used the Aqua Painter and some additional ink to create the sea.   I removed the post-it-notes and stamped “happiest of birthdays to you” from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set using Soft Suede ink onto the top right hand corner of the card.  I stamped the double grassy image from the High Tide stamp set across the sand using Soft Suede ink.  I cut Crumb Cake card using the sand dollar image from the Under the Sea Framelits three times and attached the “starfish” images to the card front.  I attached a piece of Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper behind the bottom of the stamped panel.  The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a piece of the same Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the card.

I really love how this card turned out and so did my Dad.

Bye for now,
