Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is my final card this week featuring products from the Sand & Sea Suite! Did you happen to notice that this suite has stickers? Not just any stickers, but pearlescent stickers! I’m not a big fan of stickers (that’s just me), but I figured “why not?” and if all else, I would use them on my envelope as I also like to stamp the envelope before sending out! The mini catalog does not do these stickers justice, they definitely look better in person! So, today’s card is not only quick and easy, but also show you how to use them in a card!
The base layer is this design from the Sand & Sea DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:
For the card front, you will need:
1. To create the frame from Sahara Sand cardstock, use the largest and second largest layering Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
2. Using the opposite side design of the base layer, cut a piece at 4” x 2 ¾”.
3. I used one each of the Seaside Shells stickers.
4. The sentiment is stamped on Basic White cardstock in Seaside Spray ink and I “customized” die-cutting it out by using the second smallest layering Stitched So Sweetly Dies by first lining up the die at the top of the sentiment, die-cutting only half-way, lining up the die at the bottom of the sentiment with the die-cut top, and then die-cutting the bottom.
5. You will use three of the 5mm and four of the 6mm Opal Rounds, not pictured.
I used a small amount of liquid glue around the edge of the die-cut Sahara Sand cardstock frame to adhere the 4” x 2 ¾” piece of DSP:
This piece is adhered to the middle of the DSP base layer, the shell stickers are placed in the bottom left corner as shown, the die-cut sentiment with dimensionals in the bottom right corner, and the Opal Rounds as shown:
This completed piece is adhered to a Sahara Sand cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Seaside Spray ink, and stamp the calico scallop and lion’s paw scallop shells in the corner in Crumb Cake ink, using the second step stamps in Seaside Spray ink, stamping off once first:
This is such a fun and easy card to make, it kind of reminds me of a post card! One thing I discovered with this suite, I really could do a whole month of blog posts! The ideas just came to me so easily and that’s how I know that I just love these products! While next week I will share cards with retiring products, I look forward to circling back to this suite!
