By the Bay Suite – P2

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a Screen Divider Card featuring products from the By the Bay Suite! I chose to do the screen divider card as my fun fold card with the By the Bay 6” x 6” DSP because it’s a fun way to use your DSP and use the Seaside Bay stamp set and coordinating dies to create fun sceneries! This is such a fun and easy card to make, you can use just about any punch and make as many additions to add to each section as you like. While you could even use four different sheets of the DSP, I chose to use two sheets and used both sides of the designs for this super cute fun fold card!

To start, the card base is Sahara Sand cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 11” and scored at 2 ¾”, 5 ½”, and 8 ¼”. After burnishing the folds to make an “M”, I used the Label Me Lovely Punch to create the “legs” of each fold by first punching the front panel, a little less than halfway down, folding the front panel to the next panel and using the original punch on the front panel as a guide to line up the punch to punch the second panel, and then I folded the cardstock in half so the two punched panels are on top of the other two panels to use them as a guide to line up the punch to punch each of those panels, which will give you four evenly punched panels (I hope this makes sense):

For the panels, I chose these two sheets to use both sides of the DSP, cutting each at 2 ½” x 4 ¼”. You will also need one piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 ½” x 4 ¼” for the sentiment final panel:

For all the panels, you will need:

1. Using the brushed finish from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack, use the clam die to die-cut two pieces. I wanted both the outside and inside of the clam in the brushed silver foil and discovered that if you flip the flat side of the die-cut so that it is on the embossing side of the die, you can have two embossed sides and glue the white sides of the die-cut clams together you can have all sides embossed.

2. Using the matte finish from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack, use all four of the shell dies to die-cut out.

3. On Basic White cardstock, stamp one crab in Old Olive ink and another in Mossy Meadow ink, use a Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends to color in, and use the coordinating die to die-cut out.

4. On Basic White cardstock, stamp all the sanderlings in Gray Granite ink, use Natural Blends 400 and 700 and Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends to color in, and use the coordinating dies to die-cut out.

5. On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I used Blending Brushes with Starry Sky and Tahitian Tide inks to color each half of the cardstock, stamped the oyster two times in Gray Granite ink, used the coordinating die to die-cut out, and then used a Wink of Stella Brush.

6. Use the second from smallest Layering Circle Die to die-cut from Gray Granite cardstock.

7. Use a Petal Pink and Gray Granite Stampin’ Write Markers to ink the sentiment, stamp on a piece of Basic White cardstock, and use the smallest scalloped Layering Circle Die to die-cut out. This will be layered on the above die-cut circle.

8. You will need about a 15” piece of Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon.

9. You will need one 8mm Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls, not pictured.

To assemble each panel:

Panel 1-use this DSP design, adhere the layered sentiment and clam as shown, and place the pearl in the clam.

Panel 2-use this DSP design, adhere the foil shells, oysters, and two small sanderlings as shown.

Panel 3-use this DSP design and adhere the third small and large sanderlings as shown.

Panel 4-use this DSP design and adhere the two blue crabs as shown.

Panel 5-this is the sentiment panel, which I stamped the sentiment from Sending Smiles and the seashells stamp in Gray Granite ink on a 2 ½” x 4 ¼” piece of Basic White cardstock, and then used the NB 700 and Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends to add little lines of color to the seashells.

Fold the ribbon in half, adhered the ribbon to the front panel, and then used liquid glue to adhere each DSP piece to each cardstock panel. I tied the ribbon into a knot (not a double knot, just to keep the card closed) and trimmed the ends:

For the coordinating Basic White Medium Envelope, stamp the clam in Gray Granite ink, color in the pearl with a Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker, and added a little sparkle to the pearl with a Wink of Stella Pen:

How fun is this Screen Divider Card?? The oysters are from a piece of cardstock that I had made for another project and did not use, so I figured, why not? The two crabs are experiments, when I was making Monday’s card, I wanted to see what the crabs would look like if I stamped them in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow, but ultimately decided to use the one stamped in Gray Granite ink for that card and kept these two for another time, so it worked out! Be sure to check back next time, I will show you how I used the leftover strips of DSP from this card!!
