Relaxing on the beach card

This is my third card using the Cape Cod stamp set created by Jenn Shurkus. For more information on this versatile stamp set, see the photo and explanation below.

For this card, I created a little scene on the beach. The chairs, umbrella, footprints and sentiment are all from the Cape Code stamp set. I made the sand by adhering a tea bag to white card stock with gel medium to create a little texture and a pretty accurate sand color. I stamped the footprints ever so lightly on the sand since they should only indicate an impression. But they’re so light they are hard to detect in the photo! I had a scrap of the wave patterned paper left from a previous card that I though made a good ocean backdrop.
