Seaside Bay Tunnel Card

It has been one heck of a hot day today in Melbourne, a top of 38ºc (100.4F), so I’m staying inside with the air-con on. A perfect day for crafting!

The Seaside Bay Bundle and the By the Bay Specialty DSP are perfect for this tunnel card design.

Here is how it looks from the top, once constructed and it folds flat to fit into our C6 envelope!

On the back of the card, I used the die cut circles from the front design, so not to waste them. It creates a beautiful space, don’t you think? I also stamped the sentiment on the White circle to add my message later.

Seaside Bay Sympathy card

The card I’m sharing today, is a sympathy card for a work colleague who lost her dear mother just after Christmas.

I’m really pleased with how this turned out, using Petal Pink, Coastal Cabana and Gold! The gorgeous By the Bay Specialty DSP was my deciding colour choice, in the soft pastel tones.

By the Bay SDSP 2023

This coordinates with the Seaside Bay Bundle (stamp set & dies). I started with a Petal Pink card base. I cut another piece of Petal Pink card 1cm smaller than the base. To this I added a 7cm strip of the SDSP down the centre. Using the Seashells 3D embossing folder, I ran it through the Cut & Emboss machine. I glued it to a piece of Coastal Cabana card and cut it using the Trimmer to have a very small border. I wrapped some gold Simply Elegant Trim around 3 times and tied off in a knot. This was then popped up on Dimensionals.

I die cut a circle using the Layering Circle dies, sponged the edges with Petal Pink ink using a dauber. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, added Gold Emboss Powder and melted it with my Heat Tool. I stamped a shell onto Basic White card and die cut it and glued it to the circle. This was then added to the card on Dimensionals. Some gold Pastel Adhesive-backed Sequins were added for a little extra gold!

On the inside I added a Basic White insert with a strip of DSP and a Gold Foil shell die cut with the dies.

My card tonight, I’m using the designer papers and the Seaside Bay Bundle.

By the Bay SDSP 2023

I started with a Pacific Point 29cm x 10.5cm card base, folded in half at 14.5cm. I cut 3 strips of different papers that measure 14cm x 3cm and glued them to the card front.

I die cut the shell twice in Gold Foil and glued them together. The sentiment is stamped on Basic White card and a banner cut on the left using Paper Snips, before sponging Pacific Point ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. This was glued to the card and the shell on top with a Flat Adhesive-backed Pearl added.

On the inside, I added a Basic White card insert, sponged the edges and added an offcut of the DSP and some Pacific Point card to the bottom edge, along with a couple of smaller Gold Foil shells.
