Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" size, score and fold at 4 1/4" to create card base. Using from the HCD1-7155 Circle Basics Large Die, diecut the second largest circle from the right and center of card base. Pair the largest and second largest circle together and diecut two blue circles and one teal circle from the Sea Breeze paper collection. Using from the HCD2-7189 Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die, pair the largest eyelet rectangle with sixth largest plain rectangle, diecutting a frame from white cardstock. Sponge the edges of eyelet frame with Tiger Lily ink. Accent frame with Crystal Lacquer to give it an ocean splashed look. Set aside to dry. Use the sixth largest rectangle to diecut a lighthouse scene from the paper collection. Stamp the ‘Let’s Celebrate You’ in Coffee ink onto the top left of lighthouse panel. Lightly sponge over the sunset with Sunflower ink. Stamp the flying seagulls from HCPC-3891 Sand and Sunsets Cling Stamp Set in Garden Patina ink onto top left corner and middle right of card base. Stamp off the seagulls each time on scrap paper before stamping on the card base to create a softer image. Sponge the edges of card base with Garden Patina ink, except for a very bottom section of card. Lightly sponge the bottom with Tea Rose and Sunflower ink to create a sandy beach look. Sponge over the cloud areas with Tiger Lily and Sunflower to create a sunset look. Fill in the rest of sky with Garden Patina and light touches of Sunflower.
