One of my all time favorite Stampin'Up! sets is "Wetlands." It's probably because it reminds me of being at the beach!
This layout is super simple. I had seen a lot of these types of cards on Pinterest using the swoosh from the "Work of Art" stamp set. On my sample, I used the swoosh from a new stamp set called "Sheltering Tree" that's in the occasions mini catalog. I started using the swoosh inked with Sahara Sand ink, alternating the stamp by stamping on the left, re-inking, flipping the stamp over and butting it up along the first stamped image. Then I cleaned the stamp, and did the same thing using Soft Sky ink. This gives you the appearance of a shoreline. The birds and sentiment were then stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. How simple is that??
The Whisper White layer (2-3/4" x 4") was then adhered to a layer of Basic Black cardstock (3" x 4-1/4") On the right hand side of this layer, I stapled a piece of black baker's twine and tied a small bow. The card base is a normal A2 sized card, and the layer of Sahara Sand cardstock measures 4" x
5-1/4" and was run through the Zig Zag embossing folder. After adhering the Sahara Sand layer, I attached the focal image to the card front using dimensionals.
This card would make a great masculine card, sympathy, or get well.
I hope you find some time to be creative today!
