Is there anything more relaxing than the sounds of the sea? Are there any colors more calming than the coolness of blue? These are debatable, but I think we can all agree on the beauty of the Lilypad Lake Bundle by Stampin’ Up! Join me today as I share an adorable card to answer the Global Design Project Theme Challenge: Take Me to the Sea.
The Lilypad Lake stamp set includes beautiful stamps that include images for lakeside scenes, of course, but the ocean is not forgotten. A lovely wavy texture, a tall crane and a lily pad are included to stamp and fun to color, but I thought the sailboats would be perfect for this week’s challenge.
Lakeside Framelits dies made it easy to cut all the pieces I needed. The matching wave texture cut vertically on a piece of Pool Party cardstock adds texture and a pop of interest to the background of today’s card. The sun, sailboats and embossed sentiment were all cut in one “shot” with the help of my Big Shot.
The best part is, I even used a couple of the scraps from my wave cuts to include inside the card. After all, the best way to compliment the front the card is use similar elements and shapes on the inside.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do. Do you live by the coast or inland? Show us how the sea sparks your imagination in this week’s challenge at Global Design Project.
