Summer Post Card 

http://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p3258/NEW_%22Fluffy_Besties_TM%22INSTANT_DOWMLOAD_Digital_Digi_Stamps_Big_Eye_Big_Head_Dolls_Digi_Img011_New_Fluffy_Besties_Tm_Meet_Fluffy__Beach_Party__By_Sherri_Baldy.html

Cut a peace of 12 x 5.8 inches Bright Blue card stock, and fold in half and crease with your boneing knife. Then I found a peace of decorative card stock with the thongs on it.  This was old Creative Memories Card Stock.

I stamped a post card on a peace of White card stock and trimmed down,  I sponged around the edge to create the old look.  The Post Card Stamp is from Kazzaz.  I used a set of stamps from Stampin up with the Bike and the French tower on it.  I Stamped these with Night of Navy ink.

I collect foam bits and peace from Shiploads which is like the $2 shop, they have lots of Craft items their.  I decorated my imaged with two surf  boards, A sailing Ship, and a deck chair and a star fish. and an anchor.  Just have fun and enjoy creating your card.  They do not have to be exactly the same.

The ink I used to sponge around my post card is Desert Sand by Close to My Heart.  The Stamp Set I used is Postage Due by Stampin Up.
