I used elements from the Ahoy There! range from Docrafts, including some Creativity Club downloads for both projects.
I fussy cut all the elements and strengthened them with Modge Podge before fixing them onto the card with foam pads. The image was a royalty free internet picture that I've had for a while.
I added some red netting (from a punnet of peaches) and a ceramic starfish attached with jump rings.
The sentiment postcard was computer generated and I made the lifesaver ring from a couple of circle dies.
I used some of the leftover elements to decorate a plain white wooden frame.
The shells are all from one of the Docrafts Creativity Club downloads and I created the sentiment on the computer.
The other elements are all fussy cut from the Ahoy There! paper collection. The fish paper can be replaced with a lovely photo.
I'm pleased to say that the card and frame were well received by my friend and she is settling in nicely to her new home by the seaside.
