Find the frame stamp in the “Day At Sea” set also the inner frame die from the matching die set, stamp the image with the sepia ink and die cut using the inner frame die. Color the stamped image with the zig marker pens and water. Taking the Sand Storm ink and inking tool or dauber, ink the edges of all the layers, card base, printed-paper and the card front with the die cut frame image.

Stamp the Oakberry Lane Blossoms on white cardstock using Sepia ink and diecut. Color the elements using the (Yellow) zig marker pen and a water pen for the flowers and a green color marker for the leaves. When colored, run the flower petals and leaves through the die cutting machine with the 3D Blossoms Shaping mold. For each flower prick a hole in the centre with a pricking tool and thread the stamens through the hole. Secure the stamens using the hot glue gun. Before trimming the stamen threads away apply glue to the petal edges with the old water brush, dip the petals in the glitter and put aside to dry. When dry, trim away the threads, now they are ready to use.

Taking a scrap piece of white card for the sentiment. Find the sentiment stamp in the  “Just For You” stamp set. Stamp with the sepia ink and trim the sentiment into two lines. Ink the edges of the sentiment then adhere the card front with 3D dots. Bring color to all the rest of the elements stamped, using the Zig markers then adhere the matching element layers together, ready for use.

Taking the card front and the made elements, arrange them as pictured, checking to see the placements work with the die cut frame in the card front before adhering in place. Adhere the flying seagulls to the top card front. Place and adhere the flowers and leaves in clusters to the left and right of the lower card front. Adhere the sentiment between the flower clusters.

To finish the card, apply crystal lacquer to the elements for attention and diamond stickles to the seashells.
