Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells

This card is made with the fabulous Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog (and to be carried over to the upcoming 2021-22 Annual Catalog.) This 3-step combo makes such beautiful, detailed, textured projects…flattened pictures do not do it justice! Wish you could see it in person. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base).
  • Seaside Spray Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel) and 2 1/4″ x 3/4″ (sentiment)
  • Shimmer White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (for die cutting) and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)

The Creating

  • I began by placing the larger Shimmer White panel onto the Stamparatus (don’t use your magnets yet). I then placed the stamps from Friends Are Like Seashells “into”/over the matching space on the large die in Seaside Seashells Dies. I laid the die over the panel and picked up the stamps with the Stamparatus door and removed the die (you can now place the magnets). I stamped the shells with Gray Granite Ink and added the greeting to the Seaside Spray strip.
  • Place the die back over the stamped images and pass through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. Then place the die cut into the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder, lining up the images, and pass it through.
  • I ran the Seaside Spray panel through the Subtles Embossing Folder for some extra texture.
  • On the inside panel I stamped the sentiment in Seaside Spray Ink and the shells in Gray Granite Ink. I also added some Seaside Spray shells on the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.
  • To assemble I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the inside panel and the Seashells embossed die cut to the Seaside Spray embossed panel. I add the sentiment strip and Linen Thread double bow with Mini Glue Dots. The front panel is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The final embellishment is Wink of Stella on the embossed seashells and a few Elegant Faceted Gems.
