For my hop sample today, I have used the "Love" set, shown below, in order to make a 20th Anniversary card for my hubby! Since we celebrated our anniversary by going on a cruise, I thought a beach scene card would be appropriate.
The main panel of my card was cut at 5-3/8 square (since the card base itself was 5-1/2 square). I placed a scratch paper mask just about half way down the panel, and sponged the water first. Using the same ink, I sponged clouds over a punched scallop circle, then used a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner to stamp the sentiment from the "Count The Waves" set. The beach was created by cutting a piece of Kraft cardstock, then the top edge was torn for an uneven look. The "Happy Anniversary" sentiment was stamped onto the cardstock, adhered to the main panel, then the shell sticker was added. Ultrafine Flower Soft "Sand" was then used to cover the Kraft panel all over so that the sentiment looks as though it was written in the sand.
