CCM Saturday Hop - Seaside

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Seaside, so cards with a beach, boat, water or seaside image. Beachy things are really trendy now, have you noticed? While I did have a couple sets from the 2022 -23 annual catalog that would work, I wanted to give a new preorder set from the 2023-24 annual catalog a spin. It's called Circle Sayings and it can be bundled with the new 2-3/8" Circle Punch!

This is a simple fun fold card. Score a 5-1/2" x 11" piece of Basic White at 3" and 7-1/4". Emboss the larger flap with the Basics 3D folder (run it sideways through the SCEM). Cut a piece of Bright & Beautiful DSP to 3" x 5-1/2" and adhere to smaller flap. Stamp images and greetings and punch with 2-1/4" Circle Punch (retired, can use circle die instead) and mount on 2-3/8" gold circle.

Add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with a Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blend. Yes, you read that right....Pretty Peacock is coming back! The sun and waves scene was colored with Sponge Daubers using Pretty Peacock, Lemon Lolly, and Azure Afternoon - two new colors!

That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
