In the chill, it’s nice to think of the beach!

It’s been a little chilly over here in MD and we saw our first snow on Sunday which makes me wish for the beach! Here’s a fun card using paper layering and simple Cricut cut-outs!

I grabbed some Sapphire and Desert Sand papers to create the front of the card.  I was hoping to have it look like the waves coming in on a beach.  The images are cut out of the Cricut Artistry Cartridge *Love*!  The images work with this stamp set:

I use this method for helping me be more accurate on how I center my stamping on Cricut images:

Here you can see how I lined up the ball:

I actually used the ball to hold the front of the card shut by having the sentiment stamp slip under the ball:

On the inside of the card, I put this absolutely adorable crab (I love in Maryland and crabs are a big thing here) inside the card with the sentiment and a starfish:

See how cute this crab is:

I also used the awesome Regatta paper pack:

Everything to create this is a must have for beach cards and layouts!!
