By the Bay

Here’s a masculine card that comes together quickly with the ‘By the Bay’ set (earned free during Sale a Bration.)

No coloring required…just stamp and simple layering to add richness and depth. The white frame was actually a scrap from some pieces cut with the ‘Stitched Rectangle Dies’ and layered next to the gray piece.  The stitching on the die added more detail and a finished look.

You can’t see it very well in the photo so here’s a close up of an embossing folder used to add texture to the scene. It’s called ‘Subtle Impressions’ and turns ordinary paper into a linen textured piece.

Would love to hear what you think. And as always, if you have questions about joining Stampin’Up! or how to earn free items during Sale a Bration I am happy to answer them.

Go get your craft on and make some paper confections of your own. (then come back and share them, K?
