Dolphin Days! - Pink and Main

Hello Pink and Main Friends

I was driving over the bridge to Hilton Head Island and saw a pod of dolphins chasing a boat.  They were having so much fun leaping and splashing in the water.  That was my inspiration for this card!

Designer Steps:

  1. Use an A2 white card base cut a slightly smaller piece of blue and before gluing it down use a cloud stencil and add a few clouds using blue ink.  
  2. Cut a piece of Pink and Main Beach Babe wave paper as shown and glue to blue card stock
  3. Tear the top of a  2 x 4 inch strip of kraft paper and then run it through the embossing machine. Then glue the kraft strip to the bottom of the card
  4. Stamp all the images from the Seas the Day stamp set on white and color with copics: E11, 13, 31, 34 - RV42 - R20 - YR23 - Y23
  5. Use the coordinating die set for the Seas the Day and cut out all the images
  6. Layer the sentiment (not included in this set) on blue and pop dot it to the bottom left on the sand
  7. Pop dot the dolphins and the sun as shown and glue the shells flat to the bottom right corner as shown
  8. Add sequins and your card is complete!
