Hello friends! What a week this has been. It's been so cold and then snowed again! I was hoping we were done with winter. Apparently we may have a few more days of this. Let's hope this is it!
Today is card number 4 in the Crafting at the Lake series. This card was designed by me and uses the Seaside Bay Bundle. There is a lot of die cutting for this card but I think it is totally worth it because this card is so cute.
I started by stamping the dots image randomly all over a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock. I used the edge die from the bundle to cut the top edge off of the piece of Sahara Sand cardstock. I added a piece of DSP from the By the Bay DSP pack to the top of a piece of Basic White cardstock. I added my stamped piece of Sahara Sand cardstock to the bottom of this piece of Basic White cardstock. I matted this with a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and attached it to a card base of Basic White Thick cardstock.
On another piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the following images from the Seaside Bay Bundle: I stamped the snail shell in Pool Party ink, the large conch shell in Sahara Sand ink, the triple seagulls image in Basic Gray ink. I used the corresponding dies to cut out these images. I stamped my sentiment using Basic Gray ink and punched it out using the Double Oval Punch.
I used the dies from the bundle to cut out the following images: the scallop shells from some Pearlescent Paper, the seaweed dies from Mint Macaron cardstock, the double oyster die from Sahara Sand cardstock. I used a Blending Brush to add Sahara Sand ink to the outer edges of the oyster shell.
I added these images to my card front using adhesive. I added my sentiment using dimensionals. To complete the card, I added some Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls to my card. I added a large pearl to the inside of the oyster.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I had a lot of fun designing this one.
Stay well and keep creating!
