This card is a standard A2 card which folds at the top. I started by cutting the cardstock and patterned paper for the card base, as follows:
Turquoise - 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
White - 4" x 5 1/4"
Waves patterned paper - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Next I cut the middle Pierced Wide Rectangle Frame from gray cardstock and a piece of sky patterned paper 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". I applied two layers of foam tape to the back of the frame and adhered the sky paper to the frame.
. . . colored and constructed the images.
All that was left was to place the lighthouse, seagulls, and clouds in the frame, attach the frame to the card, and add the rope and anchor appropriately -- and my card was finished.
