I used the Stampin’ Up! Wave of Inspiration Bundle that is just available on March 1st. This Stamp Set and Dies will also be in the new annual catalog May 2nd. The Waves of The Ocean Designer Series Paper, Blue Foils and Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels are only available while supplies last. I love the paper but the Blue Foils and Rhinestone Jewels are some blue and perfect. This complete suite was a must have for me with as much as I love the ocean. Since the items do not come online till March 1st I’m posting a couple pictures for you the items.

Let’s Get Started:

There is a video of this card on YouTube showing how to assemble the card. Scroll down to VIDEO BUTTON.

  1. Fold the card base of the score lines as shown in picture 1 below.
  2. Adhere the two Ombre Specialty paper panels to the middle and right (section 2 & 3) side of card base (inside card).Stamp the inside greeting on the piece of 3-1/4” x 4-1/4” Basic White card stock and cut out with the Stitched Rectangle Die that best fits the paper. Adhere to large piece of Ombre Specialty paper on the right side of card base.
  3. Stamp the pelican on the logs in Night of Navy ink onto Basic White card stock and cut out with matching die. With the same die cut one out of Night of Navy card stock and adhere this underneath and offset of the stamped imagine.
  4. Adhere a 2-1/2” x 5-1/4” piece of double-sided adhesive to backside of a piece of Coastal Cabana Foil. Using the ocean wave die (doesn’t matter which one) cut one out of the Coastal Cabana Foil on the Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine. Cut some birds out of the left-over foil.
  5. Adhere the Waves of the Ocean DSP to Coastal Cabana panel.
  6. Adhere the Ocean Wave Foil from step 5 onto the bottom left side corner (this had the double-sided adhesive on it).
  7. Adhere the pelican to card front with Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere the foil birds to card front (these also have the double-sided adhesive on them).
  9. Adhere the Coast Cabana to the card base. This is done by putting double sided tape on the left side (section 1) panel (see picture below). Fold the card base so it’s close then adhere the Coastal Cabana to it so that it covers the complete base.
  10. Stamp the Pelican on the envelope front and/or add DSP to envelope flap.


And now you have a beautiful and fun card to brighten someone’s day.

Happy Stamping!
