I had to laugh when I was asked to come up with a nautical baby card. Only then to find out that I was creating a card for a friend to put on a themed packaged gift for my own daughter. I used digital paper, sketching Silhouette files and shapes. I love making the coordinating envelopes!
Nautical Baby Card
I love to doodle. I love to color. I doodled these drinks, colored them, then scanned into my computer so I could print copies and make some cards. I’m pretty happy with how they came out, especially on the first try.
I took it one step further and used some leftover drinks that I cut out. What better thing to do with them? Put them on a drink stand. I think this card is “Sweet”!
I would like to own a refurbished old camper someday. There is something about the simplicity entwined with the caring construction of pride that appeals to me. For now, I’ll sit and look at the one I just painted on a 1 ½” rock. I may add some more detail but for now it just makes me smile:)
I was asked to make a seahorse birthday card. I used a variety of things to give it interest and texture. Glitter cardstock for the seahorse and coral. I embossed the seahorse with tiny dots and popped it off the page. I used “Wink of Stella” glitter pen on the stars of the sand dollar. Different backgrounds have it some texture. I used lots of SIL files to create this. The backgrounds were from a Pink Paisley Port Beach digital paper pack.
A friend of mine asked me to come up with a nautical birthday card she could give to her son for his birthday. I added the lifesaver last when I realized the card needed something more. This is how it turned out. I used digital paper for the background and added some dimensional texture by using hemp cord.
I think this is one of the true signs of summer.
I just had to make one of these cute ovens from the Silhouette store.
