Kids - Father's Day Card - Along the Shore

This card was specifically designed for a kids craft. I used Stampin' Up!'s watercolor pencils to "color" this card. Children, however, not old enough to use watercoloring pencils may instead use crayons and it looks just as good!


  • Along the Shore (retired) - can substitute with Winds of Grace , Seaside, or On The Fly


  • Basic Gray
  • Brocade Blue
  • Watercolor paper (can substitute for Very Vanilla)
  • Basic Gray (or can use Basic Black or Staz-On Black)

Stampin' Up! Accessories

  • Watercolor Pencils
  • Blender Pen
  • SNAIL Adhesive
  1. Stamp images of beach scene in Basic Gray. Since we're using watercoloring, let this set for a minute or so before using blender pens. For immediate coloring, use Staz-On Black.
  2. Use watercolor pencils to color image. I used greens and browns for the grass, brown and gray on the chair, gray and blue for the birds, blue for the clouds. Kids can use regular crayons for coloring.
  3. Then I used a light brown for sand and blue for sky/water and used the blender pen. This may or may not be desired with children making the card. Again, regular crayons can be used instead or watercoloring.
  4. Use SNAIL adhesive glue to assemble the card layers.
