First ‘Christmas at the Beach’ Card of the Season

First ‘Christmas at the Beach’ Card of the Season

Happy Craftersday, Crafty Queens! This year I am doing a Christmas at the Beach theme for Christmas. Check out all the beach themed craft projects here. I live very close to the water so this theme is especially relevant to me.

What does Mele Kalikimaka mean?

To start this card, I heat embossed the Mele Kalikimaka stamp from Simon Says Stamp in copper detail embossing powder from Recollections. This came out so beautifully by itself that I didn’t want to mess it up but I had to keep going. I really had a hard time cutting it up later in the project.

Next, I used the items from the Hero Arts June 2018 kit to create a sea and sky background. The layering sea stamp is a little intimidating but the great part about using it is that it a sea- if it doesn’t exactly matching up, it still looks great. Just use an ink blender with some blue ink and fill in any white space or soften any not quite right layering. For my sky, I used the Pink and Main clouds stencil. It came right on time from Simon Says Stamp. See my first time order unboxing video from Simon Says Stamp.

Put the stencil on your paper and blend over it with a soft hand. Go as far up the paper as you want before moving your stencil up and repeating the blend process. I did mine in blue and it came out lovely but try different colors to set a different mood, like pink for a sunset or maybe even purple for a late night scene.

With all the elements to my card made it is time to assemble. I die cut my heat embossing and sea/sky elements using different sizes of the Pink and Main Stitched Rectangle dies. I adhered them to the front of my card base then stamped my ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday stamp set.
