Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, TX.
Today, I’d like to share with you a card that I created using the Sand and Sea Suite from the January-June Mini Catalog along with some other goodies that already existed in my craft room.
Before we begin, I would like to make this very clear. This design wasn’t fully designed by me. I originally found the idea on Pinterest as I struggled with a design concept for the Sand & Sea Suite. I’m accrediting the idea of this card to Cheri’s Cards on Pinterest.
I will also state that this is not a “true case” meaning that I have added my own personal touches to this to make it my own.
As the weather begins to warm up here in North Texas my mind can not stop itself from wandering to the sun on my face, toes in the sand and salty air.

Take Your Pick Tool
Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine
Cardbase – Sahara Sand – 4 1/4″×11″ scored at 5 1/2″
Matte Base – Blushing Bride – 4″×5 1/4″
Mount Base – Sahara Sand – 3 3/4″×5″
Foil Sheets – 1 1/4″×4 3/4″
The first thing I did was emboss the foil sheets using the 3D Embossing Folder from the Sand & Sea Suite and adhere them down to the mount base cardstock. I also adhered the mount base to the matte base.
By doing this you give yourself a solid foundation to continue to build your card front.
I did not emboss the foil sheets all at once. I embossed them in sections to ensure proper alignment.
I trimmed a piece of the Forever Fernery Ribbon and pulled a couple of the threads up to scrunch the fabric and glued them to the gold hoop embellishments with Mini Glue Dots.
I applied Stampin’ Seal Adhesive to the embossed card front to where the scrunched ribbon would hide the adhesive and secured the hoop in place.
Do not pull the thread all the way through the ribbon. The pulled threads are no big deal. Once the loop is secured to the card front you can trim them away.
I stamped the “love you” sentiment on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock and used the Tasteful Labels Dies to die cut it out. I also stamped the seashells and die cut them out using the Seashell Dies from the Sand & Sea Suite and die cut the seagrass using the Sail Away Dies and Vellum.
To complete this card I collaged the seashells using Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots and added the Opal Pearls from the Sand & Sea Suite.
The final step was separating the seagrass using a pair of paper snips and adhering them in place using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
For the inside of this card, I stamped the “unique” sentiment and seashell in Blushing Bride and the sand in Sahara Sand.
Another great thought I had while working on this card is the retired Sea of Textures Stamp Set and Dies. I may just for laughs and giggles pull them out just to play.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ll join me again soon.
