Welcome to the Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team. Today we have a color challenge which I fulfilled using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set.
When I saw these colors, my mind went to the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (DSP) that coordinates perfectly with the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set. One of the sheets in this package is used to make the card’s background. On another 12″ x 12″ sheet, it was fun to find the shells I wanted to use and fussy cut them with my Paper Snips. Actually, the only stamping on this card front is the sentiment in Seaside Spray.
- Flirty Flamingo Cardstock (CS) – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored and cut at 4 1/4″
- Seaside Spray CS – 4″ x 5 1/4″
- DSP (background) – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
- DSP (shells) – as much as needed to cut out the shells you want.
- Basic White – 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
There is very little to tell you here. Layer all the panels together after first securing a 5″ length of Braided Linen Trim around the DSP. Stamp the sentiment in Seaside Spray. Finally, use dimensionals to attach the two largest shells. Trim the So Saffron shell to make a straight border and add it with liquid glue under the trim and along the left edge of the DSP. The smaller shells are attached with mini glue dots that give a slight dimensioned look and liquid glue.
I hope you enjoy going HERE to see what the other Challenge Team members have to share with you today. Have a great rest of your day! Let me know if I can be of any help with your card crafting. Feel free to order any or all of the supplies to complete this card below. The Friends Are Like Seashells bundle is carrying over into the new annual catalog but, the DSP is not! Get yours now to avoid disappointment later.
