Bestie Luau Card

Hello Besties! Today I want to share with you a Bestie Luau Card that I made. 


To create my card I used this Adorable Hawaiian Luau Bestie Digi Stamp 038 by Sherri Baldy that you can find here: 

To make my card first I printed off the  My Bestie digital stamp onto 110 lb. plain white card stock. I then drew in the outline for the sand, ocean, and sky around her with light pencil marks. Next I used Copics to color in the entire scene and Bestie digital stamp. I then used white acrylic paint and a small brush to stipple in the foam and spray coming from the ocean waves hitting the sand. To finish my coloring I used a white paint pen to add a few highlights and dots to create some added interest. 

Next for my card base I just folded over some patterned card stock and trimmed it to the perfect size to fit my coloring. I also cut a coordinating mat from patterned card stock about 1/4" wider than my colored scene. I attached all of the layers to my card base with an artist tape gun. To finish I added a bow, rhinestone and some flowers for some extra embellishment. 

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day! I hope that my project inspires you to try out your own beach themed Bestie card.  DT Mindy
