Sun kissed and happy

I just returned from family time at the beach and was excited to find my shipment of products from the July to December Mini Catalog waiting for me. Since I had the beach on my mind, I couldn’t resist using the “Sunkissed” stamp set. And since I recently celebrated my 15th wedding anniversary, the sentiment seemed appropriate.

I have been having fun using the Splendid Day 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper from the July to December 2022 Mini Catalog and decided to use a piece from it for this card. I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base of Pool Party, scored at 4 1/4″. I added a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Fresh Freesia and then topped it with a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of the DSP. I then took a 2 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White cardstock to stamp the image and sentiment. I stamped the image with Memento Ink and then colored it with Sahara Sand, Fresh Freesia, and Pool Party. I then stamped the sentiment in Fresh Freesia. The Basic White seemed a little stark against the card front so I used a daubber to add Fresh Freesia to the edges.

I hope you like the card. Let me know what you think and if it brings you pleasant thoughts of the beach as it did for me.
