Seaside Bay Delivers Pearls

seaside bay stamps and dies card with pearl embellishment
Hands up who would be happy with a pearl arriving with their birthday card?  Of course this isn't real, but it adds a touch of lux to your birthday card makes especially when used with the beautiful By The Bay designer series papers from the By The Bay Suite in the spring mini Stampin' Up! catalogue.  

When papers have this lovely shimmery gloss you need little else to create a card that pops.  I've stamped the shell with second generation ink as my navy pad is very juicy and I wanted to show off all the beautiful detail the stamp has.  You'll need to judge the inkiness of your ink pad.  A trial on scratch card is always a good start.  

I used the reverse of another sheet of paper to create a matt layer for my die cut and then embossed square to showcase the shell and pearl. Touches of twine and diets and simple sentiments add the finishing touches to a simple but impacting design.  You can make the shell pop more by using stampin' dimensional to make the up part rise up a little.  

You can see a very different design using the Seaside Bay bundle by visiting my previous post about masking techniques

Thanks for popping by and come back soon for another example using the Seaside Bay soon. 

Happy Monday
