“Friends are like seashells…you collect them along the way.” Isn’t that a great sentiment? It’s in the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, a favorite from the January-June Mini Catalog, that’s carrying over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Yay!
I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.
First, I cut the card base from Basic Gray Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and used the Seashells Embossing Folder to emboss the card front. Then, I use a Nature’s Thoughts Die to cut a rectangle from Night Of Navy cardstock, and glued it to the center of the card front.
Next, I stamped the large shell in Night of Navy Ink on Basic White Cardstock, added a touch of Smoky Slate with a Stampin’ Blend, and used my Paper Snips for cutting. Then, I stamped the sand dollar and starfish in Basic Gray Ink, and used their Seaside Shell Dies for cutting. The seaweed was cut from Basic Gray Cardstock, using the large die you see in the first photo, from which I snipped a bit of seaweed to place around the shells.
I glued the sand dollar and seaweed flat, and attached the large shell and starfish with Dimensionals.
“Friends are like seashells…you collect them along the way,” was stamped in Basic Gray Ink, and cut with two Stitched Rectangles Dies; one that fit the words vertically, and one to shorten the rectangle horizontally.
Lastly, I embellished the scene with Opal Rounds. These pretty dots of sparkle are retiring June 30, so order them while they’re available. Clicking on them in my Product List will take you to my store for purchasing.

Very pretty seashell card!
What I would like to know is how do you emboss the front of the base card without it going through to the back? Monika
The embossing shows on the backside, and I like the way it looks. If you don’t want it to show, you could cover it with cardstock. Or, emboss a layer to glue to the card front.
