Whale Done

Today's card is a beach themed thank you card. My step-granddaughter was married at the beach recently and this card is a thank you for the groom's mother and family who put on such a wonderful rehearsal dinner. Everything was perfectly done from the food to the decor to the people and we had such a lovely time. It is so important to let people know how much you appreciate them and I hope this card says that.

I stamped the whale and the crab from the Reverse Confetti Seaside set using hot lips and hawaiian shores inks and then cut them out with the matching Seaside dies. The tag was cut from yellow cardstock using the Sunburst Tag Layer die. A cloud cut from white cardstock using a die from the Sun 'n Clouds set anchored with an enamel dot was attached to the tag along with the whale and crab using foam tape. A tag hole cut with a die from the Hang Ups die set plus some carribean solid twine finished up the tag. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card base. A strip of patterned paper and a "wave" border cut with the negative of a scallop die finished up the card front.

Products: Reverse Confetti stamps and dies, Doodlebug dp, PTI cs, Doodlebug enamel dots, The Twinery twine, The Cat's Pajamas die, PTI and Simon Says ink.

I am submitting this to the current Color Throwdown #ctd497 Challenge.

Have a fantastic weekend!
