Hello and Happy Friday! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog Jennifer asked us to design a card that was inspired by the Ocean or a Lake. I immediately thought of the Waterfront stamp set and created this simple Z-Fold card. I love how easy it is to use this photopolymer stamp set, layering colors that look like I painted it with watercolors. And my dream place to retire is by the ocean so I wouldn't mind living in this tiny hut!!
If you haven't made a Z-Fold card they are so simple - for this card I cut the Pool Party card stock 11" x 4-1/4". I scored it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" on the 11" side and folded the shorter flap backwards. It really helps to use a bone folder to make the folds crisp. The color combination I used with this card was Pool Party, So Saffron and Soft Suede along with whisper White. I also used Early Espresso, Garden Green and Tuxedo Black (Memento pad) ink for the stamping - don't you just want to be here right now sipping a pina colada or ice cold beer?
Here is another look at my card. For even more fabulous lake and ocean-inspired ideas please hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to see what my fellow designers created this week.
