Oceanfront for the Crafty Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Crafty Collaboration Blog Hop. Today I'm hopping along with a talented group of demonstrators from around the world. Our challenge was to create a project using the colors below. I just love all these colors, so this was an easy challenge for me!
I have fallen in love with the Oceanfront stamp set, so I decided to use this set to create my project. Let's take a closer look at my card.

I started with a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Coastal Cabana card stock. That is actually my card base. On a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic White, I started at the bottom and the ocean-looking stamp with Coastal Cabana ink. The sky was stamped with Highland Heather ink and the clouds with Flirty Flamingo. Living in Florida close to the beach, we see many sunsets that resemble this.

Birds (from On the Horizon stamp set), the sentiment, and sand were stamped with Basic Gray. The grass was stamped in Old Olive. I cut 3/4" off each side to adhere to the Coastal Cabana card base.

I cut the fence from Soft Suede cardstock with the fence die from Horizon Dies. There is a wood-grain stamp in the On the Horizon stamp set that I stamped on the fence. The right fence was adhered to the front section that lifts up, and the left section to the inside section.

This card has a middle section that lifts up for an inside area. That section is Coastal Cabana cardstock 11" x 2 3/4". 

I stamped the same clouds, grass, and water on the inside Basic White 5 1/4" x 2 1/2" cardstock piece in the same colors as the front. The sentiment was stamped in Highland Heather. I decided to make this a get-well card because it seems I have needed several of those lately.

I hope you like my card well enough to try to make one yourself. I have listed all the supplies below with a link to my store, if you should need some of the supplies.

Please take a minutes to hop along to the other awesome demonstrators' blogs to check out their projects.
