Thoughts Of Holidays By The Sea


Good evening everyone out in blogland, it has been another miserable dull day here, what has happened to the sun!   Here I am again with another fabulous offer from Papermilldirect and a few holiday themed cards to cheer us up.   Using this week's Special Offer Navy Blue Linen card and a little post box red and sky blue I made these nautical, seaside themed cards.

Using a Marianne die and various Spellbinder dies I created this round card.  The Marrian die was backed with post box red card and the navy blue linen and white hammered card circles were layered on top.  The image is from Pinkpetticoat, "Beach Huts", there are also some sailing boat images with this set too.


From the scraps left from the die cutting I made the scrapling card, printing the beach hut then fussy cutting another image and placed it over the image using sticky pads.  The images were coloured with Promarkers.


My last card uses the navy blue linen, sky blue and white linen card, a little string and a sailing boat charm from my stash.



I added inserts to the cards using Papermill white linen paper printed with the image and a greeting.

These are all brilliant. Great patriotic colour scheme that makes you want to go on a good old fashioned British beach holiday.
Love the wonderful little beach huts you have used.
