My customer thank you card is a fun fold card that features the beautiful Retiring By the Bay Designer Series Paper and stamped images and die cuts from the Seaside Bay Bundle. The Seaside Bay Stamp Set and Dies are carrying over to the new Annual Catalog, but the gorgeous specialty designer series paper is retiring. The gold and pearl foil accents in this paper are beautiful. You will want to pick some up for your stash!
You can see highlights of the beautiful foil on the seashells. Here's a pic of the card standing:
The oval on the front was die cut using one of the Framed Florets dies. I then stamped the seashell image at the bottom in Sahara Sand (which is retiring). I added a bit of Pool Party with a blending brush and then stamped "Thank you" at the top in Night of Navy. The Thank You stamp actually has "for everything" at the bottom but I covered that with tape when I inked the stamp up as I didn't want that on the card. (If you do this make sure you take the tape off before stamping ha ha or you will have a mess). The clam is stamped in Night of Navy and then die cut with the Seaside Bay Dies. The grass is die cut from Mint Macaron Cardstock. I just love the colors in the designer series paper. The Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls add a beautiful finish!
Below is a pic of the card open.

Thick Basic White Cardstock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4" on the long side.
