Sounds inviting doesn't it? Hitting the beach in the middle of winter when you live in New England? A friend at work asked me if I could make a card for a physician that is moving to sunny California - and she wanted a card that suggested warmth.
I used stamps from My Island by Claire Brennan for Gina K Designs. I made my own 'sand' using a recipe from Tim Holtz - mixing Clear UTEE, Antique Linen Embossing Powder, Black embossing powder, Antique Linen Glitter and Glossy Accents.
I made the card big, the card base is an 11" x 8 1/2" card stock folded in half - there will be a lot of people signing the card so they needed space!
Here's what I stamped on the inside of the card.
Stamps: My Island - Gina K Designs, Say It Loud and Fancy Phrases - Waltzingmouse (retired)
Paper: Rustic Cream, Kraft, Hawaiian Shores, Text Style Distressed Dots - PTI
Ink: Classic Kraft, Hawaiian Shores, True Black
