Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in cream cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

Now, for the other cuts:

  • Blue Cardstock – 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Cream Cardstock – 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″

Using the deckle scissors, cut about 1/6 off of each side of the cream cardstock panel.

Mount and ink up the sentiment in black ink at the bottom right corner of the deckle-cut panel. 

Stamp the Mini Fancy Shell in Danube blue, the Tiny Scallop Shell in Bahama blue, the Tiny Bonnet Shell in elderberry, the Mini Auger Shell in sweet plum, the Tiny Land Snail Shell in summer sky, and finally the Mini Seagrass in pear tart.

Using the Stardust pen trace on some glitter on the Mini Land Snail and Tiny Scallop Shell. 

Glue the embossed blue panel to the card base. Glue the stamped border to the center of the card. 

For the envelope, stamp a border of shells across the bottom front of the envelope in the same colors you used for the card.
