I was thinking that since it’s now officially summer 2023, that I would make a beach-themed card. And Seaside Bay is the perfect stamp set, which includes plovers which are all over the beaches here in Massachusetts, especially on Cape Cod.

I used Lost Lagoon cardstock because it matched one of the sheets of designer series paper from the Earthen Elegance DSP pack. The sheet I used says it’s actually Pretty Peacock, but it has ombre coloring and the lighter it gets, the more it looks like Lost Lagoon. But I think Pretty Peacock cardstock would also look great for this card.


  • Card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ – score at 4 1/4″
  • Very Vanilla – cut 2 @ 5 1/4″ x 4″ (one for front and one for inside
  • Earthen Elegance designer series paper 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Very Vanilla sentiment strip for front” 5″ x 3/4″
