Ocean Scene ODBDSLC112

I made this easel card for the new Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge ODBDSLC112 Summer. I have seen cards with the scene cut into panels before, but I had never tried it. Since the theme for this week's challenge is summer, I thought the Mighty Sea would be a perfect set to use. It also seemed like the perfect time to try the panels for the first time, because it would be sort of like looking out the window of a summer cottage.

Originally I had planned on using a DP that looked like wallpaper, but when I tried various papers, I really liked this kelp paper from K&Co instead. The design and saying are stamped with Distress Peeled Paint onto a light blue parchment patterned CS. The scene and frame around the saying are colored with Copics. I mounted everything on a very old antique colored linen textured metallic gold CS. I don't remember which company made it. The shell I had was a die cut from K&Co, and the colors matched the card colors perfectly.

After I made and photographed the card I put it into my shop. I felt bad, because a man came in with his wife and daughter, and he carried this card around with him the whole time, and kept showing it to them, but they didn't buy it for him. Hopefully they already had Father's Day cards for him at home and that's why they didn't buy it. At least I know that men like this card!

I am excited to say that this card won Customer Card of the Day at ODBD. Thanks so much Ladies!
