Ocean Themed Thank You Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a card combining the foil plates with the nautical dies to create an ocean themed thank you card.  I am using some older dies with the newer dies.  


Use one of the 3 color combos from the Ocean Blue paper pad.  The lightest color is used as the foreground waves and the darkest color is the background waves.  Die cut with the Big Splash Board die, making the darker color blue longer to show behind the lighter waves.  Trim down to 4'x51/4" in length.  For the hight I just eyeballed it.  Marking the back and trimming it down. Adhere the 2 die cuts together with foam tape to give dimension.  The clear Fairy Drops are added to the holes in varying sizes to add the effect of water droplets.  


I used the medium color blue from the Ocean Blue paper pad as the background and hot foiled gold with the Sunburst hot foil plate in the upper left side.  Then trim down the paper to 4"x5 1/4" cutting from the side the Sunburst is on.  Adhere onto a A2 white card.


Hot foil gold on heavy white card stock using the Posh Thank You hot foil plate and die cut with the matching die.  Adhere in the center of the Sunburst.  

Die cut the largest Marina Sailboat from white and gold paper from the Rainbow Reflections Mirror pad.  


Add the waves die cuts to the bottom of the card with foam tape.  Then adhere the gold sail boat and the white sails to the bottom right hand side of the card.  This card design can be easily changed up by using different color combos from any of the paper pads and changing the hot foiled sentiment.  My son liked this card so much they asked for a birthday version to give to their friend.  I used the Fresh Aqua paper pad and the Birthday Wishes Hot Foil plate in that version. 






I especially like the radiating sun and the double wave die-cut row. A perfect card to say thank you for taking us out on your boat!
