Seaside Bay Petal Pink Crab Card


Friends, today I'm starting a card series featuring the fabulous Seaside Bay Bundle, along with other items from the By the Bay Suite. Le jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français. I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post.

For more cards using the Seaside Bay Bundle, check out my February tutorial bundle. It's available for $20 - or FREE with any order or class registration thru 28 February. (There's more info near the end of this post.)

Here's today's card:


To make this card, I started with die cutting. With Stylish Shapes Dies, I cut a Basic White Cardstock circle to fit my chosen sentiment from the Seaside Bay Stamp Set. I also cut a slightly larger circle from Gold Foil Sheets. I used Chic Dies to cut one large and one small seashell from Mint Macaron Cardstock. These dies match the By the Bay Suite very nicely and also offer other year-round dies:


Next, I did the stamping. I stamped my sentiment in Mint Macaron Ink onto the Basic White circle. I stamped the crab in Petal Pink Ink on a Basic White Cardstock scrap and cut it out with Seaside Bay Dies. The stamp set offers so many wonderful seashore-themed stamps:


I then made the circle centrepiece. I adhered the Basic White circle to the Gold Foil Sheets circle. Tip: Dry glue works best on the foil's shiny finish. Then I Iayered the seashell die cuts onto the circles, securing with Mini Glue Dots. I added the crab with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

To assemble the card, I adhered a 2” x 5” strip of By the Bay Specialty DSP to a 2 1/4” x 5 1/4” strip of Mint Macaron Cardstock. I attached the strips to a 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” Petal Pink Cardstock card base, then added the circle centrepiece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I embellished with Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls. 

I hope you enjoyed my card! Come back tomorrow for another card using this versatile bundle.
