Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay Happy Birthday Card for Amy’s Inkin Krew Blog Hop

It’s time for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! The theme this month is “Birthday” and we can interpret this any way that we’d like. I know you will see a lots of inspiration on the Hop today. Let’s go!

Before we get started, I would like to wish you all a HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Wishing you a wonderful day filled with Love!

Since my husband’s birthday is just a few weeks away, my card for the Hop today was made especially for him. I used the Seaside Bay Bundle, By the Bay 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, Best Family Ever Stamp Set, and the Something Fancy Dies to create this card.

Using a print in Balmy Blue and Mint Macaron from the By the Bay Designer Series Paper pack, I adhered a panel to a mat in Night of Navy. Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon was wrapped around the top of this panel and the panel was adhered to a card base in Mint Macaron.

The image of sand and seashells from the Seaside Bay Stamp Set was stamped onto the lower portion of the panel in Soft Suede. I then stamped a crab in Night of Navy ink onto a piece of white cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die from the Seaside Bay Dies set. Several grasses were die cut from Mint Macaron and a silver clam shell was die cut using dies from the same set. These elements were arranged onto the card front and the crab was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I used another panel from the same designer series paper as used for the front of the card and stamped the “happy birthday” sentiment in Night of Navy ink. The sand and seashell image were stamped on the lower portion of the panel in Soft Suede ink. I then adhered the panel to a mat in Night of Navy and adhered this unit to the inside of the card.

The same sand and seashell image was stamped onto the envelope front, and I adhered a coordinating piece of designer series paper to the envelope flap and trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope. The card front was adorned with multiple Enamel Dot Essentials in Night of Navy.

I hope my husband likes his birthday card! We both enjoy visiting the ocean so I thought he might appreciate the theme of the card.
