Beach Happy "Raised Centre" Birthday Card

Hello there,
Today's make is a card I made recently for my hubby and I wanted to remind him that summer was coming... One day.... lol!
I used the Beach Happy stamp set and created this scene but I wanted to do something to give it a little "lift." So out came the old faithful, stitched rectangles again to create this raised centre card...
I started with stamping the images and
TIP1: I found the Stamparatus the easiest way to line up the deckchair and the umbrella images. Start with the stripes on the deckchair ;-)
and TIP 2: I used the rock and roll technique to add a little extra colour to the leaves of the palm tree.
I added some sand to ground the image with my light Crumb Cake blends pen before cutting with a rectangle die. Stick the outer frame down flat to the navy card layer before and adding the raised centre back in with dimensionals.
I love the difference this easy, extra step makes! Great for adding "something" extra without ribbon or frills, and a perfect technique for a masculine card.
A little sentiment with another rectangle die and a couple of enamel shapes finish this card for today :-)
So, I hope you enjoyed this little make? I really enjoyed making the most of my layers for this card ;-)
Just a reminder that this stamp set is another one that is leaving us in less than a month :-( #sadtimes So if you love it please don't miss out.
Also, I know I promised another baby card this week and I will be here to share that with you in the next few days, I promise :-) I have a super busy rest of the bank holiday but I'm determined to squeeze some more blogging in. Somewhere...
'Till then, happy stamping and thanks for stopping by today xx
