Seaside Bay Card for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights

Seaside Bay is a new bundle in the just released January-April Mini Catalog, and I have used this bundle for my card. I am going to show you pictures of my card, after which will be a link for you to download a free tutorial.

The background is from the Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. This paper is beautiful. It also has 2 sheets of Cajun Craze in the pack.

The frame was constructed with paper from the By the Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper. The seashells are all from the Seaside Bay Bundle.


This card is what I call a back-easel card, as I constructed a mini-easel for the back of the card.
