and papercraft ideas and inspiration using

Heres what I came up with

Laura Mackie Stampin' Up!

When I saw this photo I instantly thought holiday,
I was thinking evening stroll on a beach, sea, 
Palm Trees and warm sunshine!
I blame the yukky wet weather on my wild imagination 
right now! we've been having lots of lots of rain here in the UK 
oh and covid 19 and lockdown! 
anyone else blaming C'19 for EVERYTHING!

Card making Ideas

I used the My Meadow Stamp set from Stampin' Up!
to stamp the images, in black memento ink, 
I have tried to create a silhouette look!

Stampin' Up! My Meadow

To create my sunset background I used a combination 
of Sponges and daubers with So Saffron, Rococo Rose 
and Misty Moonlight with a hint of Night of Navy
all sponged onto Whisper White cardstock

I created a Landscape and portrait version of the card, 
not sure which I prefer? which one do you prefer??
let me know in the comments.

I made a quick video sharing how
I made my card 

card measurements

Card base 21cm x 14.85cm score in half at 10.5cm
