By The Tide - not just for cards!

Hello, I am sharing with you today a card I for my best friend Lesley.  She recently celebrated a special birthday on a Greek island with her family so I knew just the stamp set I wanted to use for her card - By The Tide!

You will note that there is no mention of a birthday or her age on the card either!


Here is a close up of the detail on the shell and the sea horse that I stamped carefully onto vellum.  The 'splodge' of Pool Party ink underneath the images is courtesy of the Work of Art stamp set.  A sprinkling of tiny pearls and some Dazzling Details glitter adhesive catch the light beautifully:

And here is the card with its matching envelope:

I was really pleased with how the card turned out - in fact I think I will make a version for myself and frame it - I just need to find the time!

Using stamp sets and inks are not just for cards - I decided to decorate some plain brown wrapping paper and make a tag too to complete the theme:
