Waterfront card for a special thank you!

Hi Friends,

A dear friend asked me to find a suitable card for her Boss’s Appreciation Day.

I did find this thank you which I slightly modified.

Using the Waterfront stamp set is SO EASY!

The photopolymer images are fun to experiment with!

You can literally come up with so many beautiful scenes.

And I believe this set can be used for so many occasions….it’s now one of my favorites!

Waterfront Card with Simple Stripes Embossing Folder


  1. I used Gray Granite as the base cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.
  2. Then a layer of Night of Navy at 5 1/4 x 4 and embossed with Simple Stripes.
  3. Another layer of Gray Granite at 3 1/2 x 3 and the Whisper White layer at 3 1/4 x 2 3/4.
  4. Using Night of Navy, Gray Granite and Old Olive , I stamped the images.
  5. I also used Thankful Thoughts for the message.
  6. And of course for an added a cute little silver brad for some extra love!


What do you think?

I know my friend, Kathy liked it!

This is a great VERSATILE stamp set —imagine YOUR possibilities!

These are the supplies I used:
