How to make a neat stylized water?( add a few details)

Hi! I’m currently working on making shaders for the water on a cartoonish/stylized art style for a group project.

I watched a few tutorials including the Rime GAT. It goes well with simple things such as the borders.
But seems like there isn’t difference between color( which i would need to set something in base color i guess) and making a wet sand/terrain effect.

How could i make it look more cartoonish?.
