Summer time

I needed to come up with a birthday card for my boss. With all these new stamp sets, there has to be something that is more masculine. I saw a card sketch on Clean & Simple that I liked, but it was square, so I turned it into an A2 size for this birthday card. This set used Serene Silhouettes. The colors are Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Crumb Cake. I threw an orange button on and tied with linen thread. Used the Woodgrain Background in Craft ink on the Crumb Cake card base. Summer time equals beach! I wanted to do a card that evoked the beach using the By the Seashore set. Dawn Olchefske recently posted a video on her blog about Triple Time stamping. It seemed a great technique for the theme I wanted! I used Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake cardstock, Marina Mist and Crumb Cake ink for the images. A little Pool Party baker's twine and a Vintage Faceted button.
