Postage Stamp Beach Scene card

From the watercolor background stitched postage stamp... to the awesome SVG palm tree .... Plus the super cute Cricut cut embellishments.....  I had so much fun creating this scene card.
I started off with a large card base from hot off the press.   I cut a front cover out of the pretty teal blue and ran it through my Cuttlebug, Anna Griffin - climbing rose embossing folder.  Next I took a piece of white card stock and created the watercolor background  by rubbing distress inks (wild honey at the top, mermaid Lagoon in the center and weathered wood near the bottom) on my largest stamping block, spritzing it with water and then placing the white card stock down onto it to get that awesome watercolor effect.   I cut it out with my largest postage stamp die.  I then took some Kraft card stock and used my Craftin Desert Divas - outdoor landscape die to cut the stitched section of sand, I then ran that through with my largest postage stamp die again and then adhered it into place on the bottom area of the watercolor background.  The stitched sun is Die-namics Sunny Skies & the clouds are from a different set of dies.   The adorable palm tree is an SVG file from my friend Cheryl over @   I used my bone folder to score the areas on the trunk, and then went over it with a brown marker, I also inked the edges of the palm fronds with a light green ink.  The flip-flops and the Adirondack chair with the word RELAX  are both from Cricut - life's a Beach cartridge.  I cut the chair with the word twice,  I then cut off the bottom portion of the word on one of them and inked it up in shaded lilac distress ink with a direct ink pad to paper technique before placing it over the top of the original word under the chair.
