Hubby and I will be going on a cruise in just 1.5 weeks so I'm definitely in beach/relaxation mode already and I'm sure that this beachy 7"x5" card shows it!

I actually colored my image with Crayola Coloring Pencils. I wanted to show you that you do not need any fancy coloring pencils/markers to produce beautiful colored images! I used OMS to blend them together.

I made two gorgeous blooms using the tattered florals stamps/dies. I also die cut and stamped an anchor and added a green bow to it.

I wanted this card to be THICK so I packed on the layers! You can see the dimension that I achieved in this close up.

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Cut a piece of white cardstock to 7”x10” and fold in half. Trim 3 different pieces of pattern paper to 7”x5”, 6.75”x4.75”, and 6.5”x4.5” and distress the smallest two layers with the Zutter Distrezz-it All tool. Ink all edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. Layer the two smallest layers on top of the other and machine stitch these two layers together. Add these two layers over the third pattern paper and adhere over the card base. Add a piece of 1.5”x7” burlap across the center of the card. Die cut and emboss the largest die from the labels 18 set and pop dot it over the center of the card. Die cut two Decorative Lattice Swirls Die in white and emboss them. Layer them over the brown die cut shape as shown. Stamp and color the lounge chair and die cut/emboss with the fourth smallest Shapeabilities Standard Circle die. Ink the edges and pop dot the image over the lattices. Stamp the sentiment and snip of a V shape at the end of the left side. Tuck in under the left side of the image. To make the flowers, stamp two of the second smallest and one of the smallest tattered flowers and die cut them. Shape the flowers and layer them and add a pearl to their center to form a full bloom as shown. Stamp and die cut a few leaves from the Botanical Floral 2 PreCut Set. Add the flowers and leaves to the right side of the image. Stamp and die cut an anchor out of a darker pattern paper and a thicker chipboard material. Layer these two pieces together and ink the edges. Make a double loop bow and add to the anchor. Add anchor to the bottom right side of the card.
