Birthday on the Beach

Julie Warner -
BEST OF 2013! 

A big congrats to Robin (Missro), the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS324)! What a lovely gallery she has and after much browsing, I chose her Happy Birthday Joan card to case. I kept the basic layout and white background but turned it on its side, used different images and made mine a window instead of a layer.

I needed a birthday card for my nephew and since he was born in Hawaii, I usually make him a beach related card. Though I have to admit, this beach scene reminds me more of the town where I grew up rather than Hawaii. The images are from Our Craft Lounge (sadly they closed 🙁 up their business). I stamped the scene on top then added a black frame and the top white layer w/ windows cut out using Spellbinders long deckled rectangles. Another one of the images was stamped on the top layer and all of it was colored w/ Copic markers. The little seagull was fussy cut and attached on top. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for looking!

  1. This is gorgeous Julie. Great idea with the window, and the little seagull perched outside. Love all those images.

  2. I love how you stamped in the nestie spot and on the bottom of the card. You’re always so creative.
