Today's card is one I made for a coworker who is retiring. She is going on a Hawaiian cruise so, what better than a card made with Life's a Beach! I started with the textured light blue card stock base and then added some waves. The waves were made with Core'dinations Color Core paper from the Aqua Blues collection that got at Pat Catan's. I cut the first color in a 1" strip an then the second color in a 1 1/2" strip then I used the Fiskar's waves border punch on them and then embossed them with the Sizzex swirls folder. I glued the larger one to the base and then pop dotted the smaller one for some wave dimension. The cruise ship I cut at 2 1/2" and decided not to use the smoke cut that goes along with it.
I cut the Bon Voyage out using the cruise ship key but, the Title Words creative key function but I cut the small cruise ship off. I cut the seagulls out using the Lighthouse key, shift, at 1" and then the sun, I cut using DS and removing the face. I cut it at 1 1/2" and then trimmed the sides so that I didn't use the entire sun but rather, part of it peaking from the corner. On the inside, I just added another trip of 'waves'.
