Sand & Sea

June 17, 2021

Yesterday on my Facebook Live I shared a fun fold which I had never made before, it’s called a Bay Window Card! Sounds complicated but they are surprisingly easy. For today’s card, I used Thick Basic White card for the card base and after scoring and folding added Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to each of the panels on the card front. I cut Basic White card using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and stamped the greeting from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set onto the top right hand corner using Sahara Sand ink. I stamped the seashell from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set onto the bottom of the Basic White panel using Flirty Flamingo ink and covered it with a post-it-note mask.

I stamped the star fish image and the sand dollar image from the same stamp set using Sahara Sand ink. I added a post-it-note mask over the sand dollar image and stamped the seaweed image twice using Mossy Meadow ink. I attached the stamped panel to the centre of the bay window. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the seashell image from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set onto the lower left hand corner using Flirty Flamingo ink. I covered the seashell with a post-it-note mask and stamped the seaweed image twice using Mossy Meadow ink.

I attached the Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper panel to the right hand side of the inside of the card using Foam Adhesive Strips. You have to make sure that you only add the adhesive strips to the back of the right hand side of the Designer Series Paper so you can tuck the front panel underneath to create your “bay window”. I also added panels of the same Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to the panels on the back of the card front. Not because you need to but because I managed to get ink where I shouldn’t and this covered it beautifully.

I think this is a fun way to play with your stamps and perhaps I haven’t created my card in quite the way it was meant to be done but I love the end result, don’t you.

Bye for now,

Kris

    Why don’t you include sizes of the papers you use on your cards?

    I included a link in this post to my Facebook Live page and you can find the templates with the photos of the cards I made. Sorry but I can’t add dimensions for every single piece I use on every single card.
