By the Seashore Birthday Card

I'm ready to ditch this winter, skip spring, and jump right into summer! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for beach weather. The truth is, I'm always ready for beach weather! With the beach on my brain, I turned up the heat to my craft room and settled in with my By the Seashore stamp set.

(Side note: I will be having a card class this month, called From the Sea. Visit my event calendar for details.)

 I love the idea of the Triple Mat technique, but sometimes it can look a little too busy for my taste. I scaled mine back to two layers, and I really like the outcome. I cut two piece of Whisper White card stock and layered them before stamping the By the Seashore seashells (say that ten times fast!) with Baja Breeze and Sahara Sand ink. I then separated them and added the Sahara Sand layers, tied on the Linen Thread, and added Stampin Dimensionals between the top layer and the card base.

The Make A Wish sentiment is from Sweet Essentials, and goes perfect with the cut out, Baja Breeze, sea star, that I added last with a Stampin Dimensional.
