Stampin’ Up! Birthday with By the Bay Specialty DSP

Hello – ’tis Sat and our families are here to celebrate Thanksgiving. We share with in-laws :O)and they come here after. It works. Today’s card is a shaker card for a special birthday young man. I’ve used a couple of new items: two new to me & one new in the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog: the Let’s Celebrate Embossing Folder and the Fabulous Frames Dies are both new items for me. The By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP is also new to Jan-April 2023 Mini Catalog and is gorgeous!

Stampin' Up! By the Bay 6x6 Sp DSP Shaker card

This DSP looks so ‘beachy’ to me so I’ve used Sahara Sand card stock to create the frame using the Fabulous Frames Dies. And the Let’s Celebrate Embossing Folder was used for just this sentiment. I cut it way down just for this. I should have taken more pictures 😖… Anyhoo… the By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP was adhered to a Sahara Sand card base so it encompassed the full front of the card. To secure the window sheet to the inside of the frame, I used Tear n’ Tape all around the frame, then put the window sheet in place, then the Foam Adhesive strips were adhered to that. I attached the ‘frame’ to the card front just at the bottom, then sprinkled in a few Effervescent Elements and secured the rest of the frame in place. The sentiment was adhered just to the frame. Very masculine, don’t you think?

I kept the inside really simple ‘cuz I have some special things I want to write. 😏 I adhered a strip of the very same By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP along the left side to a Basic White panel – and called it done. I kept the envelope simple as well – another strip of the same By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP, just wider, to the left edge of the envelope. I really do like the masculinity of this card.
