Floating Seashells

April 2, 2021

Today’s card is another Floating Gate Fold card created after watching Dawn Griffith’s video. I shared this fold with you yesterday but you can see more of my creations on my Facebook Page. I cut and scored Thick Whisper White card to create the card base. I cut two strips of Sand & Sea 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and attached them to Sahara Sand card before attaching them to the front panels. I cut Sahara Sand card and Basic White card using two Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the large seashell from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set onto the Basic White rectangle using Sahara Sand ink.

I masked the stamped image and stamped the second seashell from the same stamp set using Flirty Flamingo ink. Keeping the mask in place, I stamped the last seashell using Seaside Spray ink. I removed the mask and stamped the greeting from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set using Sahara Sand ink.

I attached the Basic White rectangle to the Sahara Sand rectangle and then the card front, making sure to only add adhesive behind the left hand side. To decorate the inside centre panel of the card, I attached a piece of the same pattern Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper to Sahara Sand card. I didn’t add any decoration to the side panels since you can easily write your message onto the card base. The mechanisms are created from Basic White card as well. I stamped the image panels using the seashell from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set onto Basic White card using Flirty Flamingo ink. I masked the image and stamped the seaweed image from the same stamp set using Granny Apple Green ink. I also stamped the dotted image using Seaside Spray ink before removing the mask. I stamped the starfish image onto So Saffron card using Sahara Sand ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Seaside Seashells Die. The starfish are attached onto the image panels. The image panels are attached to Sahara Sand card and then the mechanisms.

These are truly fun cards to make and I hope that you are inspired to give them a try.

Bye for now,


NB: Seaside Spray ink is one of the retiring in-colours and has already sold out.
