Off to the Shore

Hi, Friends.......

I am here with a fun seashore-themed card for summer in a vintage twist on the red, white, and blue that is front and center this month. 


I used the Graphic 45 "By the Sea" collection. I tinted my cheesecloth "netting" by smooshing it around in Distress Ink. I also added vintage lace and a scattering of real shells, putting it all on a burlap background. 

LOVE how this turned out.....tons of delicious textural elements. Don't you just want to touch it??? :)

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 "By the Sea" collection
Distress Ink in Vintage Photo
DCWV burlap
Shells and vintage lace from my stash

Hope my card makes you long to cool off at the seaside! Thank you so much for stopping by. Your visits mean so much to me.
