One of the Stamp sets I received with my pre-order is the Seaside Bay Stamp set. I I love the crab image in this set. It reminds me of the summers when I was a kid, we spent a week at the beach with my grandparents. Every year one night for dinner we would have a bushel of steamed crabs. Grandad taught us how to open them, pick them and crack open the claws.
To create my card I started with a Balmy Blue Cardbase. I selected 3 patterns from the By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper. I cut 2 strips of the DSP to 1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and attached them to the front of the cardbase. I love the pattern of the Night of Navy DSP pattern it looks like water.
With a second pattern of the By the Bay DSP I trimmed it to 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ and adhered it to the cardbase.
To create the label, I selected a 3rd pattern of the By the Bay DSP and trimmed it to 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″. I adhered it to the Night of Navy pattern cut to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″. On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and added the sand stamp in Sahara Sand. I die cut it with the Something Fancy Dies. I attached it to the label layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the crab on Basic White in Pacific Point and fussy cut it out and adhered it to the sentiment.
To finish the front of the card I added a few Iridescent Pastel Gems! I love a bit of sparkle on a card.
Inside the card I added a Basic White panel with a strip of DSP cut to 1/2″ x 5-1/2″.
All the amazing products I used to create my card, Seaside Bay Stamp Set, Something Fancy Dies, By the Bay Specialty DSP (pictured below with the Iridescent Pastel Gems) will be available beginning January 5, 2023!!
