Stamp the clouds from HCPC-3891 Sand and Sunsets Cling Stamp Set in Tiger Lily ink onto top left corner and middle right of card base. Stamp off the clouds each time on scrap paper before stamping on the card base to create a softer image. Stamp the flying seagulls from the same stamp set in Garden Patina ink next to clouds, stamping off each time. 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. Use from the HCD1-7204 Arrows and Banner Die to diecut the largest and second largest arrow from teal and blue paper from the Sea Breeze collection. Trim off the point of arrows. Sponge the teal arrow with Garden Patina ink and the blue arrow with Nautical Blue ink. Use the HCD1-7156 Eyelet Oval & Basics Small Die to diecut the largest eyelet and plain oval from white cardstock, creating oval frame. Sponge the edges of frame with Tiger Lily ink. Accent edges with Crystal Lacquer to create an ocean splashed look. Diecut the large oval from clear cardstock. Use the largest plain oval to diecut lighthouse scene from the paper collection.

Trim off the little sandpipers and sponge with Tea Rose ink. Cut a 4 1/2 x 1 1/4" strip of cheesecloth and sponge with a touch of the Garden Patina ink. Dab the cheesecloth with Dries Clear glue, then sprinkle with Crystal Clear and Poupon. Set aside to dry.
Lightly shape the anchor rope frame, sea grasses, and sandpipers with the stylus from Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Trim apart one section of the sea grass. Attach the clear oval behind the eyelet oval frame. Attach anchor rope frame underneath top left of oval. Layer dimensional adhesive under eyelet oval. Now layer the teal and blue arrows onto card base. Next layer the lighthouse oval on top. Attach orange border strip at the bottom. Add some Poupon glitter over sunset and seashells. Lay seashells onto lighthouse oval, leaving them unattached. Now layer the dimensional eyelet oval right over the lighthouse, creating a seashell shaker card.
