Summer by the Sea class card

This "boy on the beach" was one of the cards we made at the Summer by the Sea stamp class last night. We managed to make three cards and a matching gift tag, although we didn't quite stick to time (having too much fun) *laughs*.

The base card is Really Rust, matted with Haiku paper and Very Vanilla, paper pierced and stamped with the Birthday Wishes sentiment in More Mustard ink. The centre strip is Chocolate Chip card punched with the scallop edge punch, matted with Really Rust and Chocolate Chip ribbon. We used More Mustard ink to stamp the boy onto Very Vanilla card. It was matted onto more Chocolate Chip card secured with Pumpkin Pie brads in each corner.

We made the "girl in pink" card. A matching tag was created by stamping with black Stazon onto Very Vanilla card and colouring with watercolour crayons and aquapainters. This was punched with the 1-3/8" circle punch and matted onto Pretty in Pink card punched with the scallop circle punch. Elastic gold cord was tied on.

Finally I just had to share the lovely card that one of my neighbours made for me. I surprised the girls next door with some of the dinky Easter baskets like the ones I made for my colleagues at work. In return I got this bright and cheerful card which had even got a "made by ..." image on the back. Isn't it just great - I love the details, the daffodils, the stripes on the egg and the little chick.

Boxes and Bags class tomorrow night - off now to finish preparing.

That card is very elegant, and what a good idea to make gift tags using part of the image. Lovely finishing touch on a gift.
