Seahorse by the Sea Easel Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon July 2023 Blog Hop
Hello, Friends! This beachy blue Seahorse by the Sea Card is my inspiration project for the Really Reasonable Ribbon July 2023 Blog Hop. Welcome to the hop! You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.
This month’s hop is all about the beach. That’s one of my favorite places, and one of my favorite topics for crafting. So I pulled out some gorgeous Paradise Aqua Seam Binding and Brown Sugar Baker’s Twine to dress up this beachy blue easel card.
Because I was working with scraps of my patterned paper, I had to join two panels to create the cover on this 7″ x 5″ card. To cover up the seam, I adhered a strip of 3/8″ Turquoise Quatrefoil Satin Ribbon to a 1/4″ strip of Scor-Tape.
All these shades of aqua helped to create a wonderful beachy blue vibe for my card. I added a beautiful board Seahorse, starfish, flat back pearls, and Beautiful Beads from Reneabouquets to finish out the scene.
A Peek Inside
Here’s a peek at the inside of the card. I love the fact that the Brown Sugar Baker’s Twine can be seen inside the card, too. The pocket doubles as the stopper for the easel mechanism. You know me and my pockets! I’m going to find a way to fit at least one in!
In addition to the gift card wallet that’s tucked into the larger pocket, I made a small side pocket that fits a small journal card and tag combo.
