Woodware and Crafty Cardmakers - By The Sea

What a mixed summer.... sunshine, windy, rainy - its all happened. I just imagine a sunny warm day, sitting under an umbrella near the beach and ocean.  I hope that my card reflects my dream...
Woodware are again sponsoring Crafty Cardmakers this week the theme is 
                                     By or Under the Sea the theme runs for two weeks.
Don't forget to check out the Crafty Cardmakers blog and play along with us all, we have a prize!

So here is this weeks card:-

This are the products I used:-

8 x 8 white card base
Sheet of white card
1 sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper
7 x 7 piece of white pearl paper
6 x 6 piece of patterned paper
Small scrap of sand patterned paper
Black micron pen
Dreamweaver stencil LL329
Stickles crystal glitter glue
Stampendous Sailboat Jumbo Cling Rubber stamp CRS5089
Selection of Sakura Gelly Roll pens - metallic and glaze
Mark Richards pearl white clusters
Mark Richards 5mm Mint gems
Circle die or compass cutter.

This is how the card was made:-

1  Take the card base and fold in half to give the 8 x 8 card blank

2  The 12 x 12 sheet is cut into 2 pieces of the right size.  1 piece is 7.5'' x 7.5''  and the other is 5 1/8'' x 5 1/8''.  Put the smaller piece of paper to the side for later.  Stick the larger piece of paper centrally to the front of the base card.

3  The pearl paper is cut to 7 x 7  and this piece can then be attached centrally to the base card.

4  The 6 x 6 patterned paper is also attached to the base card.

5  Cut a piece of white card 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and attach centrally to the base card.

6  The next step is the slightly tricky one use one of the left over pieces of the 12 x 12 patterned paper and cut a piece of this 5 1/4'' x 2 5/8''

7  Cut a piece exactly the same size from the sand patterned.

8  The blue patterned paper is the stamped with the wave stamp and a blue ink pad.  It doesn't matter if some of the images overlap - after all they are waves.

9  Once step 8 is completely dry match the sand and the wave pieces together and use low tack tape to join them together.  This is only needed until the aperture is cut.

10  Once the pieces are matched cut a 3 1/4 circle from the centre of the piece.  Put this piece to one side  for later.

11  The next step is to cut a piece of white card  and using low tack tape and the stencil attach to the white card,  this is done only until the design has been drawn on the card with the micron pen.

12  Remove the stencil once drawn and colour in the design with the  Gelly roll pens.  The colouring medium can be your own choice of course.

13  Use 2 ink pads on the background to blend the design in to the image panel.   The lower portion was done in a light/medium colour and the top portion was done in a blue colour

14 The stamped panel is then attached to the base card BUT before it is permanently attached check its position as the aperture. and when all are the right place attach them to the base card.

15  The next step is to faux stitch around the white pearl edge, the white card, and round the circle.

16  With the self adhesive pearls they are attached to the white pearl  layer and are placed 3 along and done on each corner.  The next ones are placed on the corners of the 6 x 6 layer and are placed 2 along and down and the next ones are place in the corners of the apertures.   Also a strip  of the gems is placed on the joins of the aperture panel.

17  Next to give a little sparkle and texture to the front of the card I used the crystal stickles glitter glue randomly on the stamped waves.  I added the white pearl clusters to the top, bottom and side as I thought of the sea foam reaching the shore.

18 Finally I added a bow to the spine side of the card.

So there is this weeks card, I hope you like it.  For inspiration  and to get more ideas and inspiration go to the Woodware blog.
