Hello everyone! Today I´d like to share another Elizabeth Craft Designs guest design team card project with you. I created a set of two retirement cards using their die cut dies and stamps with Ranger Distress Inks.
For this card I used a white cardbase which I created a yellow cloudy sky with a DIY stencil I made using the Adventure Edges die cut die. I inked the coulds onto the background with yellow Distress Ink. Then I die cut all the waves using the Adventure Edges and Ocean Edges die cut dies. I inked the waves in two blue Distress Ink tones to get more variation into the waves.
Then I die cut the scenery using the Palm Trees die cut set. I die cut everything from white Soft Finish Cardstock and then inked all pieces with Distress Inks. After inking I just arranged everything onto the card base and starting with the waves, adhered the pieces on place. I used both liquid adhesive as well as Clear Double Sided Tape for the bigger pieces. The tiny tweezers are a big help, when adhering the tiniest parts on place!
After that all I needed to add to the card was a stamped sun and sentiment. I used the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set for the sentiment and took the sun from the Beach Sentiments stamp set.
Then for foam on the waves I used a Scribble Stick with a paint brush and splattered that only onto that particular area. This makes the sea look more interesting.
I also created a second card using exactly the same steps, but this time I replaces the palm trees with a sailboat. This die set is sadly discontinued, but you could easily replace this die with for example a Hot Air Balloon. I find that also very suitable for a retirement card.
This card I created using exactly the same product, except I used the Ahoy Sentiments instead of the Beach Sentiment here.
To give you an even better idea of each and every step, here is a start-to-finish video for you to watch. Hope you like it!
This was my May GDT tutorial for the Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am very excitedly waiting for a parcel with some new product arriving. Cannot wait to share project with you next month again!!
