There are so many fabulous products in the new Mini Catalogue it was difficult to choose which one to showcase. Living close to the beach, I love all things beach and ocean themed so when I saw the Sand & Sea Suite, I knew I had to have it all!
My project for today is a card and gift packaged together in one of our acetate card boxes.
I used Seaside Spray cardstock for the gift box which contains a pair of sparkly earrings - a birthday gift for a friend who loves beachy jewellery. I created an insert with Whisper White cardstock to clip the earrings to.
The card is a fancy fold and opens out to reveal four squares. I thought
this would be perfect to showcase the different features of this suite. I also used the fun, new Stitched With Whimsy dies to create a border on the lower right hand sentiment square.
Stampin' Up! has introduced something new with this Suite - the ability to die cut, then stamp, then dry emboss the stamped die-cuts to achieve a fabulous textured finish to the images. The large yellow shell below is an example of this.
I die cut and embossed the little oyster shell out of the new Pearlescent Specialty Paper. Unfortunately on the photo it's difficult to see the beautiful sheen which looks just like the inside of a shell.
All products used are available to purchase from the 5th January in my Online Shop here.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project and have lots of fun creating your own!
