A very special person is turning 80 years old in a few short months. Her awesome daughter and one of my closest friends came up with this amazing idea to have all her Facebook friends send cards to her mother to help her celebrate. Of course I was game, but I had to make one instead of visiting the local Hallmark store. The front was inspired by Paige Dolecki's card from a few years ago. Check out her blog and the post here. The inside was all from my head! So here goes..
The card is from Close To My Heart and came in a workshop on the go that I bought for something else. I ripped and embossed pieces of Champagne Close to My Heart Cardstock for the sand. I inked them with Fun Stampers Journey Oatmeal Cookie ink. The blue background is from blue cardstock that I bought from JoAnn Fabrics. I cut the Happy Crab with my Silhouette. I popped the layers up with foam dots and inked them with Fun Stampers Journey Cranberry Bliss ink. The inside is an additional piece of the ripped cardstock and a crab punched with my Martha Stewart Crab Punch. All of the sentiments, from the AmyR Oh So Beachy stamp set, were inked with Fun Stampers Journey Black Licorice ink. The happy birthday sentiment was really happy "belated" birthday, but I cut it apart so the fonts would match.
