Masculine Seaside Card


I don’t make a lot of ‘seaside’ type cards, despite loving the beach. (Not to swim – I don’t go in the water at the beach.)

There are two great challenges going on right now that really spoke to me, so I made a card so that I could join in.

They are:

Seize the Birthday – Water challenge


Mod Squad Challenge – also Water Challenge

The background was made using distress inks. Once dried, I used Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge to add sand texture and pebbles to the foreground. The seashells, starfish etc, were made using a Gina K Designs stamp set – “A Year of Borders”.

The fence was a die-cut sent to me by a friend some time ago, and the anchor is a die. Sorry, I don’t know the name or company. (I get a lot of unbranded dies.)

The greeting is from a retired Stampin’ Up! set.
