Make an underwater masterpiece with this bold card! To begin, cut out a textured blue card base to 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" (8.9 x 8.9 cm), keeping the embossed waves texture. Adhere the Poppy Parade coral die cut behind the textured square piece with Mini Glue Dots so that the end peaks out. Adhere to a Fresh Freesia card base with dimensionals. Flip a coral die cut piece around so that the white is showing and adhere it to the front of the textured square with Mini Glue Dots.
Using the Bermuda Bay Classic’ Ink Spot, stamp the following: the sentiment on the flag banner, the texture on the blue star, and the rolled letter on the bottle. Wrap the linen thread around the neck of the bottle and tie a bow. Layer and adhere all stamped pieces with dimensionals to the front of the card. Finally, adhere a Poppy Parade seahorse to finish of your card!

To make this card inspired by adventures on the sea, you’ll need to start by trimming down a Bermuda Bay card base to 4-1/4" x 2" (10.8 x 5.1 cm) and another Bermuda Bay card base to 4" x 4" (10.2 x 10.2 cm). Emboss the square Bermuda Bay piece with the Into the Clouds Embossing Folder and distress with Paper Snips Scissors by running a sharp edge across the paper until white parts start to show, creating a unique, rustic texture.
Stamp a sentiment onto the printed bottle die-cut piece with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Use the Vintage Bottle Punch to create two bottles out of the striped piece and two bottles out of Pool Party Cardstock. Stamp texture onto the bottles in Pool Party ink. Layer and adhere bottles to card base with dimensionals. Wrap the Sweet Sorbet baker’s twine around the card and tie a bow with knotted ends.
Create a two-toned ship by stamping the ship image twice on Basic White cardstock, one in Basic Gray ink and one in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Fussy cut both images but trim the sails off the black image, leaving just the hull of the ship. Glue the stamped pieces together, creating a black ship with gray sails. Adhere the ship to the front of the card with dimensionals and you’re done!

Adhere this piece to the center of your wooden frame with Adhesive Foam Strips.
Cut an envelope to 5-1/8" x 2-7/8" (13 x 7.3 cm) and stamp it with the wave image from the Waves of Inspiration Cling Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink. Take a blue textured card base and cut out a wave using the Waves Dies. Layer these two pieces and adhere together. Then attach to the to the center of the wooden frame using dimensionals.
Stamp a sentiment in Night of Navy ink to Basic White Cardstock and trim into a label shape. Stamp the post image in Soft Suede ink onto Basic White Cardstock and use a Blender Pen to blend the ink to add dimension. Die cut the post and trim off the pelican. Replace the pelican with the seagull die cut from the kit and adhere together. Die cut the clouds from Basic White Cardstock and die cut the label piece out of Bermuda Bay Cardstock. Layer all pieces together, including twine behind the post, and adhere to the wooden frame using Mini Glue Dots and dimensionals. Finish off your artwork by embellishing with Faux Sea Glass Shapes to the bottom of the post piece. Hang your frame on your wall or gift it to a friend!
