Beach themed card with Makin's Clay

Hi everyone, it's finally summer.  After the long cold winter we've had, it's awesome to feel the sun on my face.

I created lots of fun seashells using Makin's Clay clay and tools.  Earlier this month I created a canvas for the Makin's Clay blog and, since I had lots of left over elements, I decided to use them to create a card.

I found this watery paper in my stash and decided to use it as my card base.  I used gesso to add mesh to the left side of my card and added the Makin's Clay shells on top.  The sentiment is from Rubber Dance Art Stamps and was perfect to use for this beach themed card.

Since I knew the card would need to be hand delivered because of the dimension, I also created a coordinating envelope.  Using Rubber Dance Art Stamps, I randomly stamped around the envelope and added an address panel in the center.  I again added mesh to the left corner with gesso and placed a fish and several more shells on top. 

Perfect for hand delivering to the recipient. 

What will you create with Makin's Clay today?
Thanks for stopping by today.
