A friend recently asked me to make a thank you card for her daughter’s summer swimming teacher. No brainer. I went right to Seaside Shore stamp set. All those little fish swimming around. What doesn’t work with that!

Do you see the envelope? I love adding a little clue about the card to the envelope.


Design Notes for Seaside Shore Thank You Card:

The Swirly Scribbles set of Thinlits has been a favorite since it first came out. I love the swirly flowers and have found lots of uses for the lines that blend together. Here I used them as waves. I had the Soft Sky waves on the paper and it looked a little blah. Then, I cut the swirly lines from some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and paired the two together. I was purposely not super careful about lining them up. The effect is kind of cool, right?  The little bubbles stamp added a nice background,. I used White Heat Embossing Powder to add a little more texture. I later thought that I could have used White Craft ink. Next time. Here’s a close up so that you can see the Glimmer Paper.

My final, “I think it needs something else.” touch was to add some Glitter Enamel Dots. I love those things!

Oh, I forgot to mention that the sentiment is from the All Things Thanks stamp set. Both stamp sets come in both Wood Mount and Clear Mount. Always good to have choices, isn’t it?
