I know I have been absent for a while.....so sorry, and I am trying to catch up with posts from all of you! I was away, visiting a wonderful, sweet friend at the beach in SC! Yes.....warm weather, gorgeous ocean views, and the best company I could have asked for! :0)
I made a thank you card today for the person that let us stay at their beach house. This is also your freebie for the day! I do hope that you like it as much as I do - I think it turned out really nice: it cuts well, looks good, and isn't made up of a million tiny pieces! :0)
Final card measures 5"x5".
You can see some of my tiny shells that I picked up in the sand. I brought just a few small ones home with me, hoping to add them to a scrapbook page I have in mind. :0)
The card uses Stampin Up card stock. I used some old Apricot Appeal, Bordering Blue, Going Grey. I ran some of the pieces through my Cuttlebug: the wing through with the Textile folder, and the rocks are run through with the D'Vine Swirls folder. Some inking on the edges, and some sponged "water" in the background. I popped open a new white gel pen I have --- oooooo...it writes so nice! It gave my waves just a bit more movement. I have a tendency to "over do" the gel pen, but I think it looks better here than on some of my past cards. :0)
Anyhow.....I hope you all have had a wonderful couple weeks! I look forward to catching up on posts, and will be back again soon with another freebie for you! In the meantime, have a great week, and Happy Crafting!
