1 Cut a piece of cardstock to measure 15x30cm, draw in a light central guide line and fold both sides towards the line until they meet. Fold the edges in using a bone-folding tool to create a gatefold card.
2 Take the dark green and blue plain, textured papers from the Pheobe paper pad. Cut and stick down the blue paper to represent the sky, shape the dark green paper to form waves and the sea, then stick down over the blue sky. On the inside of the card, cut out and stick down a 7x10cm piece of blue card, then cut out and overlay a shaped piece of green paper to create waves and sea.
3 Stamp the boats and starfish onto a range of coloured and patterned paper form the Pheobe paper pad. Cut out carefully with small scissors and attach them to the card in the composition shown in our example. To add detail to the boats, stamp the same image twice on different papers, cut out one main image, then cut out the sails of another colour, then stick onto the main image.
4 Stamp ‘sail the seas’ using green ink to the bottom of the main card and the central image. Using the same ink, stamp fish and rubber rings to the sea area to add texture.
