It is Laura here. Can you believe it’s nearly the end of July? Where did it go?
I love all things nautical. The ocean is definitely a source of inspiration for me and today I would like to share a Summer Themed Greeting Card featuring Totem Seahorse.
This card was a delight to make.
- Cardstock (4″ x 5 1/4″)
- Blank A2 size card (4 1/4″ x 5.5″)
- Summer themed sentiment stamp
- Bubble wrap
- Totem Poppet Seahorse
- Mini brads
- Washi tape
- Acrylic block
- Acrylic block (pink, blue, white)
Grab Totem Seahorse and Mini brads.
Paint the chipboard (I chose pink color for the seahorse, but coral would be beautiful as well).
Once the chipboard is dry, start assembling the Totem Seahorse.
I love how nicely it came together. This will make a beautiful focal point for the greeting card.
Prepare the cardstock with your choice of paint.
Now this is where things get interesting. While I was rummaging through supplies, I came across some bubble wrap and decided to incorporate it into the project. I attached the bubble wrap to wet background and waited until it dried…
Once the cardstock has dried, I removed the bubble wrap to reveal a pattern. I was hoping for a more striking effect. Now that I think about it, I should have applied paint to bubble wrap directly and dabbed the white cardstock, that would have been a nice effect. There is always next time 🙂
I decided to use a stencil and white acrylic paint to create more interest. I also attached the background layer to the greeting card.
Assemble the greeting card. This step requires gluing the Totem Seahorse and decorating the card. I used some washi tape to add more interest to the card.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment. If you do not happen to have anything nautical, use a pen and write a nice greeting.
And here it is, my summer greeting card!!!
I hope you love what I’ve created!
