*Ma­te­ri­als from Ec­stasy Crafts un­less oth­er­wise noted.

1. Form a 5 x 7-inch card from blue card­stock.

2. On a sheet of white card­stock, nest 31/2 x 51/2inch rec­tan­gle die in­side 43/4 x 63/4-inch rec­tan­gle die and se­cure with low-tack tape; die-cut to cre­ate a frame. 3. Die-cut a 43/4 x 63/4-inch rec­tan­gle from water­color pa­per. 4. Die-cut two sail­boats from white card­stock.

5. Die-cut and em­boss two an­chors from blue card­stock.

6. Place water­color panel from step 3 onto a piece of card­board or foam board and se­cure with low-tack tape around en­tire edge. This will hold pa­per flat as color is ap­plied and as it dries. 7. Use a pen­cil to lightly draw a line across water­color panel where wa­ter will meet sky. Brush clear wa­ter across “wa­ter” por­tion of panel. Paint area with two blue paint col­ors swirling paints to sim­u­late wa­ter. Set aside to dry.

8. Once dry, re­peat step 7 to paint “sky” por­tion of panel, paint­ing it a very light blue; add a few drops of color to sky to cre­ate a re­al­is­tic look. Let dry. 9. Re­move tape and trim panel slightly so edges will not show un­der frame once it is at­tached to card. 10. Use white ink to stamp surf de­sign onto “wa­ter” por­tion re­peat­edly; sprin­kle on em­boss­ing pow­der and heat-set. 11. Ap­ply red ink to cabin of one die-cut sail­boat; let dry. Lightly ink edges black. 12. Cut off sail por­tions only of sec­ond die-cut sail­boat and use foam pads to ad­here sails on top of first sail­boat. Lightly ink edges of sails black. 13. Use dou­ble-sided tape to ad­here wa­ter­col­ored panel to card. 14. Use foam pads to ad­here white frame to card.

15. Layer and glue both die-cut an­chors to­gether; tie a piece of blue cord onto an­chor; trim cord to ap­prox­i­mately 1 inch. Use foam pads to ad­here an­chor to card as shown. 16. Use foam pads to ad­here sail­boat to card as shown, se­cur­ing end of an­chor cord in place. 17. Cut four 2-inch lengths of twine; knot cen­ter of each and trim ends evenly. Ad­here to cor­ners of card as shown. 18. Re­fer­ring to photo, use black marker to draw seag­ulls on card.
