There's been another run of little boys' birthdays recently. I immediately thought of Stampin' Up! ® Sea Street rubber stamp set (available in wood or clear) and shaker cards.
The outside of the card is made using the Maritime Designer Series Paper. I usually have an aversion to cutting up DSP, but I'm trying to get over it! I've had this paper since the demonstrator pre-order back in June and not used it until now!
I loved making these cards and was really pleased with them. My 5 year old son, however, was totally unimpressed, said they were boring and demanded I make cards with race cars on them instead! Luckily the recipient liked them (or at least the Mum did lol!).
I put gold glitter in one of them, but it kept falling out every time I shook the card so I decided not to for these two. I cut out all the little crabs, lobster, star fish and anchor by hand.
I hope you've enjoyed today's projects. Don't forget I will be moving my blog soon to http://bedlamandbutterflies.co.uk. I will try to move all my email followers over, but please do pop by the new blog and follow me there to make sure you still get my posts - and a big thank you for your support!
And finally don't forget about the Weekly Deals!
