Pearlescent Seashells


When I saw the Global Design Project colors, I knew they would be perfect for my first card using this suite.

I’m also sharing with the Paper Players.


This suite is very unique, because of its die-cutting and embossing capabilities. My entire card front was cut with one Seaside Seashell Die (#156095) from Pearlescent Specialty Paper (#154291) 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. 


Then, I embossed the entire piece with the Seashells Embossing Folder (#154309). You can line it up on the inside of the folder, then roll it through your Stampin’ Cut & Embossing Machine. Amazing!


Next, I used Light Petal Pink and Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends to color the embossed areas of the shells and seaweed. 

After coloring, I glued it to a Thick Very Vanilla card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 

For a touch of Night Of Navy, I stamped the sentiment “thank you” from the stamp set, Friends Are Like Seashells (#154368), and used a Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting.

Finally, I added three of the fabulous Opal Rounds (#154291).

The entire Sand & Sea Suite Collection is #155980, which includes the numbered items above, plus Sand & Sea Designer Paper (#154288) and Seaside Shells stickers (#154290).
