We all love seeing what we can find on the beach, especially during the summer months. This card celebrates exactly that. Go for a stroll along the shore to collect some shells or pop to your nearest craft store for a pack, then it’s time to get stuck in. We’ve added some fabric to increase the tactile feel on this greeting, but you could just use a contrasting colour of cardstock if you haven’t got any to hand. Oh, and shell crafts are a great thing to get kids involved with – why not let them create alongside you?

Starfish or large shell
Thick string
Cardstock: white, blue, pale blue
Fabric, gingham
Stamp, sentiment

1. Cover a blank, 9cm x 14cm, with blue card. Trim gingham fabric, 8cm square, fray the edges and fix near the top of the blank.

2. Glue a smaller square of pale blue card in the centre, then secure a net across the front using spots of glue.

3. Adhere a starfish in the middle, then add knotted string. Stamp or adhere a greeting at the bottom of the blank.
