Two Beach/Seashore Cards

The larger of these cards measures 5ins x 5ins and the smaller 3.5ins x 3.5ins.

After I finished making the lighthouse cards (yesterday’s post) I was left with two oval 3D stickers that I wasn’t sure what to do with …. then, I remembered some plastic crabs I got on holiday last year and wondered if they would work well together.

When I saw that they were in proportion I was on a roll …… using text paper from my Papermania A5 Bookprint pad as a background it was all starting to come together….. I just edged each square very roughly with a pale blue Promarker pen and then again with a black finer almost scribbling round the edges.

The final piece de resistance were the peel off corners (as you know, I usually have a great aversion to most peel offs!), but these looked just like silver seaweed …. and I was so thrilled with the overall effect, in fact I might not let the larger of these cards go!

Really like these cards. You know, I think it almost looks like there's an image of a crab incorporated in the center of those corner peel-offs. Nicely done!
