Step by Step

1. Trim striped Ahoy There paper to 19x13cm. Fray the edges with a craft knife and blend blue dye ink softly around the edges (repeat this with all paper panels in this design
2. Add a holed border using a craft knife and Papermania Piercing mat and create little tears on the edges. Tuck fish cut from Ahoy There patterned paper below the rips and matt onto frayed red and then dark blue card leaving a narrow border of each. Add to front of the card blank.
3. Fray the edges of a white die-cut Ahoy There postcard. Blend blue ink around the edge. Matt onto blue and then red cardstock
4. Die cut a 4cm diameter circle from scrap card and attach to the top, centre of the postcard. Blend yellow Papermania dye ink through the aperture to create a sun.
