#SU! Seas the Day Paper-Pieced Shaker Card

Have you ever purchased a stamp set or stamp bundle and not gotten around to using it? I'd love to say that never happens to me, but...

That is the case for this fun bundle, Seas the Day! As I've mentioned before this past spring had some unexpected bumps for our family in addition to big things that we did plan. So, needless to say I didn't spend as much time in my stamp room as I'd hoped to. 

With the January-June Mini catalog on it's way out, I pulled out this fun bundle and oh, my! What a fun bundle it is, and I'm so sad that it won't be sticking around.

While working on designing a card, it seemed to be almost asking to be a shaker card. And I just didn't like a single-color front. So, I added a paper-pieced front to incorporate more color.

Back on December 15th of 2020, I made a similar shaker card using the Snowman Season bundle.

I hope you'll watch my assembly video where I share tips and tricks learned from this process. 

As promised in the video, here are the measurements:

Basic White Thick cardstock: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored along the 8-1/2" side at 4-1/4"

Basic White cardstock: 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"; 1" x 1-1/2"; scraps large enough to stamp fish, crab/starfish

Coastal Cabana cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4", cut using the water-scene die

Granny Apple Green cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4", cut using the water-scene die just enough so all the sea-weed are cut; 1-1/8" x 1-5/8" (for layering under the greeting)

Calypso Coral cardstock: 4" x 2", cut using the water-scene die just enough so the coral gets cut
