Stampin’ Up Seashells embossing folder

Hello Everyone – if you like beach themed cards you will love my Stampin’ Up Seashells embossing folder idea today.

I love playing with anything beach related. We have a couple of stamp sets, an embossing folder, and some great pattern paper you can use to make beautiful beach cards.

The Facebook Group CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge had an embossing challenge this week. You could CASE any project that had embossing on it. I began by looking through the catalog and found the exact card I wanted to do on page 22.

Check out this beautiful card that was inspired by a card in the annual catalog.  Come see all the details for the Stampin' Up Seashells embossing folder idea.

The star of this card is the Seashells 3D embossing folder. It was used for the background as well as the shells on the front.

I played with the gilded leafing for the shells like the sample in the catalog had. I love the look it gave to the shells.

I used one of the stamps and a gold Wink of Stella for the inside of the card and the envelope. I don’t think the Wink of Stella was a good choice so will need to play with the idea more.

I try to mimic the look of the card front on the inside of the card and envelope by using one of the images.  Check out the card front that was inspired by a card in the annual catalog.  Come see all the details for the Stampin' Up Seashells embossing folder idea.

The embossing folder has a lot of detail and makes it very versatile in your papercrafting. This idea uses the folder as a background for a small center panel. The shells are the focal image on this card.
