Prima Seashore Cards.

Sorry but there are more cards Blogging Friends,  I just love this set and don't know if I will be able to stop until the pad is empty.
If you like them too, they are available from Ali-Craft.

I decided that for this card I would really like to try and make a ship in a bottle. The little ship stamp was just crying out to be put in a bottle Lol!

This is what I ended up with.

  • I used a Tim Holtz die for the bottle which I cut out in card from the pad and in acetate.
  • I edged the card die cut with distress ink and cut out the stopper using cork sheet.
  • The ship was a stamp from the collection and was cut out and attached to the card.
  • I completed the card by matting and layering papers from the pad onto black card then attaching a strip of builders scrim to the centre panel, wrapping string around this before attaching the mounted bottle and sentiment.
  • The Crystal gems were then added to finish the design.

Close-ups of the card shows the detail more clearly.

Back soon with more samples.
Happy crafting,
