Today’s card is a “stepped-up” version of yesterday’s sneak peek of Seaside Bay. It’s still clean & simple, but with some added detail.

I began with By The Bay Designer Paper, and cut a layer, 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″, to glue to a Sahara Sand card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

“stepped-up” Seaside Bay


Next, I cut a second design of By The Bay Designer Paper, 3″ X 5 3/8″, and gave texture to the top half with the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder.


Prior to gluing this second layer to the middle of the card front, I stamped the three Sanderlings birds in Early Espresso Ink. The birds are from the Seaside Bay Stamp Set. Aren’t they cute?

The sentiment is also from the Seaside Bay Stamp Set, stamped in Night Of Navy Ink, cut with a Meadow Die, and attached with Dimensionals.


For additional detail, I embellished with Faux Sea Glass, always a special find along the seashore.

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
