Seashell CASE

August 2, 2021

I was inspired to create this card after seeing this one on Pinterest by Janet Ribet. Janet’s card was created a while ago and used different images and embossing folders. I began by cutting a circle from a piece of Very Vanilla card using the Layering Circle Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and used dimensionals to attach it to the front of scored and folded Thick Very Vanilla card. I stamped the large seashell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using So Saffron ink. I stamped the smaller seashell from the same stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Flirty Flamingo ink. I also stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Sahara Sand ink.

I cut out each of the seashells using the co-ordinating Seaside Seashells Dies. I also cut a piece of Mossy Meadow card using the large background die and trimmed off a small section. I attached the sand dollar image to the card front inside the circle cut out. I attached the die cut seaweed to the back of the large seashell and attached it to the embossed panel on the card front. I attached the smaller seashell across the bottom of the larger seashell. I used dimensionals on the back of the seashells where necessary. I stamped “happy” from the A Wish For Everything stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Mossy Meadow ink and cut it out.

I stamped “birthday” from the same stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Mossy Meadow ink and also cut it out. I attached the “happy” inside the circle. I attached the “birthday” onto the card front using a mini dimensional under the left hand edge.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the large seashell from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set onto the lower left hand corner using So Saffron ink. I masked the image and stamped the smaller seashell from the same stamp set over the bottom of the large seashell using Flirty Flamingo ink. I masked the smaller seashell and stamped the two seaweed images from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink.

I really love how this card turned out, thank you Janet for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
