By the Tide: Paper Craft Crew Challenge

Good evening friends!  I'm loving the weather here this week, I'm thinking that we've officially said goodbye to winter (yeah!) and we may be bypassing spring.  This week I decided to make a card for this weeks Paper Craft Crew challenge and wanted to embrace the nice, bright colors that go along with spring.  For this card I used the By the Tide stamp set and the Epic Day designer series paper that's part of the This and That product suite, which is super fun.  My cardbase is Crumb Cake and I added two pieces of the designer series paper matted with Pool Party cardstock and wrapped Calypso Coral Baker's Twine around both panels before making a bow.  I also added three small pearls in the bottom left corner.

For the main stamped image I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped with the text stamp and Crumb Cake ink (I stamped off first to make the text softer).  Next I stamped the grass image with Gumball Green ink and again stamped off first.  Next I stamped the fish on Pool Party cardstock with Sahara Sand ink before cutting it out with Paper Snips and using dimensionals to pop him up.  The final touch was to stamp the greeting from the Wishes Your Way stamp set and used the decorative label punch to cut it out.
This card is so soft and I love all the different elements.  This is another fun sketch that you'll definitely want to give a try.

Pin It!
