Waves Dies Earthen Elegance Card & Blog Hop

Warm greetings from Canada! In case we haven't yet met, I'm Julie Golding Page, an Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator living on the Atlantic coast of Canada. Our town of Saint Stephen is just across the tidal Skutik/Saint Croix River from Calais, Maine, USA.

Friends, today I'm excited to participate for the first time in Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery!

We all blog hop across the Stampin' Up!® world, seeing multitudes of fantastic cards. Then everyone who views the cards gets to vote for their favourites!

Vote for my card here.

The theme for our cards is thank you. What better way to offer someone a kind word than a lovely, handmade card? Here's my card:

I chose Waves Dies as my centrepiece, since I'm spending some summery time at our cottage on Lake Simcoe. I'm happy to share the beauty with you, friends!

To make this card, I started by using the Waves Dies to cut:

  • a tag from Basic White Cardstock
  • 2 birds from Pretty Peacock Cardstock
  • a wave from Vellum Cardstock
  • a different wave from Holographic Trio Specialty Paper
I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post.

Here's a look at the Waves Dies, which have so many summery possibilities:

I then stamped my sentiment from the Seaside Bay Stamp Set onto the tag in Pretty Peacock Ink. 

From there, it was all about assembly. I used Mini Glue Dots™ to adhere my waves to a 3 3/4" x 5" panel of Earthen Elegance DSP. 

This DSP may not come to mind first as a lakeside or seaside choice, but it includes some beautiful watery hues of Pretty Peacock fading into white:

Next, I adhered the DSP panel to a Pretty Peacock Cardstock panel. I then added the two birds.

I fed a length of Balmy Blue/White Variegated Ribbon through my tag and secured it to the back of the panel with Mini Glue Dots™. I attached and popped up the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals™ and fed a small piece of ribbon through to make a knot. 

My final step was to add the panels to a 4 1/4" x 11" Basic White Thick Cardstock card base with Stampin' Dimensionals™.
