Hello my friends! Just a few days ago I got my new Bo Bunny collections in the mail and was so excited about them, that I immediately stopped all other projects just to give this adorable 'Boardwalk' collection a play! I just LOVE the nautical/beach elements in this collection, lighthouses, ships, starfish, weathered wood.....I just had to take a moment and do up a couple of cards!
For my first card I used the Boardwalk 6x6 paper pad for my background (I chose the weather wood paper for this), and then cut out the lighthouse image from the 'Sandcastle' paper as my focal point image.
I then took 2 of the Misc Me Boardwalk pocket square designs (the starfish) and mounted one on the card and then cut out the starfish/title from the other. I gave the starfish a little dimension by using an embossing tool on the back and rubbing along the lines of the legs. I also cut out some smaller starfish images from the back of the 'Beach Bliss' paper and did the same with an embossing tool. It takes a minute to do but makes a big difference in the finished look of the card. I finished the design with a bit of burlap, some hemp twine and a piece of trim (netting) I got from my sweet friend Janene, at The Scrapbook Diaries.
For my second card I used the ship postcard design from the Boardwalk 'Beach Bliss' paper as my focal point, and matted it on the dark blue 'Sail Away' paper. I sandwiched a piece of burlap between the two layers.
I made the fun anchor design by using a piece of die cut paper (anchor) from the matching 'Noteworthy' pack (this is a pack full of really fun nautical and beach die cuts). I used Bo Bunny's Chocolate Pearlescents to add a metalic 3D effect. I added a layered chipboard medalion and added some hemp twine and some bits of denim of some old jeans.
