Aren't these colors pretty together? All that coral and pools made me think of oceans so I turned to my By the Tide set and got to work. I sure am glad this set continued into the new catalog so I could use it some more!
The saying goes, the devil is in the details, right? Well, that was true of this card! I started with the basic elements: Pool Party base, So Saffron layer die-cut with an Oval Framelit. Then, I filled in with some smaller elements: stamped the fan coral in Calypso Coral on Naturals White cardstock and added the text stamp from By The Tide to the So Saffron layer. After I stamped the sentiment from Bring on the Cake to the banner, I needed to pull in some more Early Espresso so I used my retired color spritzer to sprinkle some on the So Saffron cardstock with an Early Espresso stampin' write marker.
A Naturals Designer Button and some Early Espresso Baker's Twine finished off the sentiment. To adorn my seascape, I stamped the seahorse and shell in Calypso Coral and Pool Party inks and fussy-cut. Pearls and some Dazzling Diamonds add just the right amount of shimmer and sparkle.
