Seashells Thank You


First, I used Thick Basic White Cardstock for the card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded t 4 1/4″. Second, I cut a piece of pink, Sand & Sea Designer Paper, the same size as the card front, 4 1/4 X 5 1/2″. Third, I cut a piece of the shell patterned paper, 4 1/4″ X 2 1/4″, and glued it across the middle of the pink paper. Then, I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting.


Next, I used the third largest, Stitched Rectangles Die, 2 1/2″ X 4″, to cut the center panel, and layered it for thickness. After gluing the “frame” to the card base, I attached the center panel with strips of Foam Adhesive Sheets.

You wouldn’t have to use the Stitched Rectangles Dies, but I like the added detail. 


Now, for decorating the panel. I stamped the sand dollar, starfish, and “thank you,” from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, in Crumb Cake Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I fussy cut the shells and used the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die for the sentiment. Don’t you love the small size and shape of this die cut?

I attached all three with Dimensionals on top of a piece of Braided Linen Trim. I had fun pulling it apart and “unbraiding” the ends. It’s held in place with two Mini Glue Dots.

Last, I added three of those beautiful Opal Rounds.
