TPB ~ It's Summer somewhere!

Hi friends!

Happy Monday!
I hope your weekend was spectacular ♥

Today's card is channeling summer!
When I made it last week, we were packing our bags to head 
to the beach ourselves for our weekend getaway :)

This card was such fun to make.
It's a collaborative card using products from Eyelet Outlet
and The Project Bin from the Instagram hop they had this weekend. 
I used the Summer Fun stamp set, one of my favorites!  

I chose products that reflected a beach/summer theme
since I knew that's what my card would be.

Here's how I made this card:
I started by masking and blending my Tim Holtz Distress Oxides
in Broken China and Squeezed Lemonade and my mini blending tool.
I wanted to create the illusion of sand dunes 
and in order to do that, I created a template out of chipboard.
The palm tree brads were a bit smaller than I planned for
so I went with a 'in the far distance' look :)
And to finish it off the beach scene, I added seagulls,
the quintessential bird at the ocean!


Finally,  I created a frame to go around the image and 
popped the whole card onto 3D foam.
This card is really thick, measuring almost 1/4 of an inch!
I really love this cardit's so peaceful, serene, calming ♥
I do love living so close to the beach and visiting often ...
hence, the name of my blog :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
