Sometimes you need to add a bit of pizzazz to a handmade card and it’s easy to dress up a simple card using the Seashells Embossing Folder by Stampin’ Up!
This is such a gorgeous card and all because of that gorgeous Seashells 3D Embossing Folder used on the background. See other cards made with this folder. The Seashells Embossing folder adds a seashore vibe to any project and it’s a great way to give them some dimension and texture.
I wanted to stay with a more elegant theme for this card, so while I could have gone with brighter colors, I decided to go with one of my favorite oceanic color combinations:
I love how the Mossy Meadow green helps create a gender-neutral palette, avoiding too soft a color combination. What do you think? Here’s how easy this project was to put together:
Supplies Used on this Project
- Basic White Cardstock: 5-½” x 8-½” and 2” x 3” scrap for die-cutting
- Petal Pink Cardstock: 4” x 5-¼”
- Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 1-¼” x 2-⅝”
- Cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock to 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, score at 4-1/4” and fold at score line to create your base card.
- Cut a piece of 4” x 5-1/4” Petal Pink Cardstock. Using the Cut & Emboss Machine and the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder, emboss the cardstock and adhere to the base card.
- Using the Cut & Emboss Machine, Rectangle Stitched Dies and a scrap of Basic White Cardstock, cut a 1” x 2-3/8” Stitched Rectangle. Using the Mossing Meadow ink pad, stamp the sentiment onto the White rectangle. Using Sahara Sand ink, stamp the small shell images around the sentiment.
- Adhere the White cardstock to a 1-1/4” x 2-5/8” piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock. 5. Wrap the Crinkled Ribbon around the front of the card and tie into a bow. 6. Adhere the sentiment next to the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
