All Our Love Vintage Beach Inspired Greeting Card

Hey there Peeps! I'm sharing a card today with a vintage beach theme that is near and dear to my heart. Our little family loves the beach so much we spend our Christmas holiday there.  A little sand....a little surf. IHOP(for those not in America IHOP is International House of Pancakes) for Christmas dinner. What could be better?

I think these warmer tones of blue and kraft adds to the vintagy effect.
The shells and sand dollars make a great accent and work well to fill in the flower arrangement.
A scribble frame in a circular shape breaks up the square edges.
Tucking in some cheesecloth gives the effect of netting...a natural choice for a beach card. I love the texture it adds and helps to fill in the arrangement.
The bow has white stitching and helps to break up the dark blue satin.
Last but not least.....some coordinating Prills to give the effect of  water.

These chippies were fun and easy to alter to coordinate with the vintage beach theme....
1. The bare chipboard was wiped down to prepare for finishing. 2. Flat white acrylic to top off the scribble frame and gold to base coat the shells and sand dollars. 3. Crackle medium is added to the sand dollars and once dry a thin coat of white acrylic. Stamping on the frame and a bit of inking. 4. Distressing the edges makes the elements pop.

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts~ Beach Shape Set, Scribble Frames and Lines.

Okay that's all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
