Happiest of Birthdays with Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper

It's time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #659.  We have a sketch!


I trying to make myself use my designer series paper instead of hoarding it.  So my card for today uses the Sand & Sea DSP.

CCMC #659 Sand & Sea DSP by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a base of Thick Basic White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score this at 4 1/4 and folder using a Bone Folder to burnish the fold.

Cut the water rippling paper to fit the card front at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue this to the front.  Glue is really the better way to go.  It gives you just a little give to fit the paper perfectly.

Choose two different patterns and cut them to 3 1/4 x 4 1/4.

Glue one of these in the upper right corner leaving about 3/4 inch on the top and side.

Use the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set to stamp the largest saying on the second paper.  Use the Stamparatus to get a perfect dark print.  I stamped in Melon Mambo.  Add this layer over the first leaving about 3/4 on the top and side of this panel.

Add a strip of the sand colored paper that is 1/2 x 4 1/4 down the left side.  Use the sketch to help with placement.

There is a sheet of designer paper with seashells.  Pick some to cut apart and add to embellish the card front.  Glue most of them, but add a couple with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Friendly Flamingo stamp set.  Stamp in Melon Mambo.   Add a few more shells in the corner.
