I made this card for Sunday Stampers theme MEN
Think I might have just missed the dead line! I stayed up late last night hot gluing the shells on the card. Had to wait until this morning to take photos. So here it is

The stamp is an old one from Stamp It called 'The Boys'
I paper pieced the shorts/swimmers in scrap pattern paper. Water coloured with distress inks.Think they look sunburn enough? LOL!
Distress inks and cloud punch to create background on white card.
Stamped shells from Darkroom Door Seaside in Tea Dye onto the folded Kraft card.
Mesh ribbon and shells completes the card.


  1. So funny! I love that card. Those guys crack me up. The netting and sea shells really add a wonderful touch. Is that a sunscreen-resist technique? lol

  2. Fabulous card Shirl! Just love that funny image! xx

  3. Oh I love that stamp Shirl... what a hoot... and the shells add such a nice touch...
