Seaside Sea Street Treat Cup Card

There's been lots of glitter, lots of sparkle and lots of Christmas projects on the go, but this weekend saw little one attend a birthday party for a school friend so of course a little card was needed.

After spending some time lost in the world of Pinterest I of course had narrowed my crafting time to produce said card down to an hour or so. Whilst browsing I came across some examples of the Sea Street stamp set and I realised I could use this. I just moved away from the usual nautical red and blue combinations, added a little pink here and there and this is what I came up with.

My little fishes are stamped in Melon Mambo and also some Strawberry slush.  To get the lighter tone I stamped off first. My other colour combination is Bermuda Bay.  I wanted the card to be a bit special so I added a Treat Cup and then put in some of the little 'friends' from the set, the little crab and the little lobster along with some of the starfish cut out.  

It's a must to have some sparkle right?  I add some beads I had from my stash and there are also some punched out Glimmer stars from the Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper. You can also just see in the photo that my Perfect Print Numbers dies have come in handy too to add the number '5' to the octopus. Here is a closer view.

I stuck my treat cup to the outside of the card to keep the image behind it and then I used my Circle Framelits to create a border.

The birthday celebration needed a little banner so I used the Banner Punch with the Designer Paper Stack in the In Colours 2013-2015 and the Thick Baker's Twine to create my banner. I glued the twine of the banner with glue dots and then stuck the banner pieces down with the two-way glue just overlapping the twine.

To finish it off with some birthday greetings, a little 'Happy Birthday' from the Something to Say stamp set and the 'Birthday Wishes' inside is from the Four You stamp set.

I hope the birthday girl liked it!
