I had to make cards using the Seaside Paper Pack (available through August 2019). This is one of my all time favorites from Close to My Heart and when it was announced to be coming back, I was thrilled!
Not only is the Seaside Paper Pack available through the end of the month, so is the stamp set. I find this stamp set to be relaxing just to look at it! I love the look of this card so much, I used this as our make-n-take item at my all day crop last Saturday. Everyone loved it as much as me.
To make these cards, I used the following products:
- Card Bases and Envelopes
- Kraft Paper (cut to 4 x 5.25)
- White Daisy Cardstock (cut to 3.75 x 5)
- Seaside Paper (cut to 3.50 x 4.75)
- White Daisy Cardstock (cut to 3.25 x 4.50)
- Desert Sand Ink (discontinued but if you do not have it, Toffee also coordinates)
- Mini Ink Blending Tool (Amazon)
- Seaside Greetings Stamp Set
On top of your card base, layer the kraft paper, white daisy cardstock, and seaside paper.
Using the smaller piece of white daisy left over, stamp the lighthouse in Desert Sand (or Toffee)
Use the mini ink blending tool to ink the Edges.
Find sentiment to stamp on the front. The stamp set has 3 (Birthday Wishes, Thinking of You, and Congratulations). I chose to use a stamp set I had in my stash for the Thank You. I needed to send a card to my Mother in Law and I loved the look of this one so much.
Once you have it stamped, add it to the front of your card with either adhesive or foam tape.
Everyone enjoys getting a handmade card in the mail, so sends yours to someone and brighten their day!
