I have a card to share that features the old Stampin’ Up! Sweet Seasons Stamp Set that was released in 2004! I’ve had this set for ten years and never used it until I was searching for a stamp to create a beach scene. I had forgotten about the Sweet Seasons Stamp Set, and glad I stumbled upon it!
The reason I was searching for a beach scene stamp was to participate in yesterday’s Splitcoaststampers Clean And Simple (CAS) Challenge to “Hit the Beach”, CAS385. This challenge is hosted by Kathleen Curry, who wanted to “see a beachy card from everyone” who chose to participate in the challenge.
I chose the little girl image from the Sweet Seasons Stamp Set because it reminds me of my very precious granddaughter who loves the beach. Needless to say who will receive this card!!
This photo provides a closeup of the image. Because I live on the west coast of Florida and the sand on the beaches are more white, my sand in the image is Brick White (Copic Sketch Marker E40).
I designed the card with four layers of card stock, of which three are frames. The white frame is smaller than the Rich Razzleberry (Stampin’ Up! card stock) frame, and the Wild Wasabi (Stampin’ Up! card stock) frame is larger than the Rich Razzleberry frame. To create the frames, I used Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Double Stitched Squares Dies.
I like the card, and I’m sure so will my granddaughter!

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.” John 15:5-6
