For Day 1 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Beach Bound stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Summertime Paper Pad and Palm Tree Stencil.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

The background panel was die-cut using scallop die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I used the Waves Stencil and some textured paste for added interest. Once the panel was dry, I adhered it onto some white notecard.

I die-cut the oval background using the Oval Frames Die Set. I ink-blended this panel using the Sunscape Stencil with distress oxide inks. I used the same scallop die to die-cut the oval panel to make it look more cohesive, then added to the card front with liquid glue.

I finished the card design by adhering the focal image, along with drawing a few birds and adhering the sentiment. Here’s another look at the card:
