Hi! How are you? Yesterday I posted my Top 10 must haves from the retiring Annual Catalog and already the Stamparatus and Forever Fern stamp set are sold out! Over 50 products sold out yesterday – WOW! If you haven’t checked out what is retiring – do it now!
Today, I have a card featuring the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder- part of my number 1 in the Top 10 yesterday.
This folder is simply stunning. I took a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor paper, spritzed it with water and then applied ink with a Water Pen before running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine to emboss it with the Seashells 3D folder. The colors used are Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and Sahara Sand (the last 3 are retiring this month). The die cuts are from the Seaside Bay die set in the January-April Mini. The sentiment is from Happy Labels also in the Mini. The ribbon is from the Old Olive and Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack.
The base of the card is Sahara Sand measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded. A layer of Mint Macaron (also retiring) measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ is matted behind the Watercolor Paper – which measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.
I love how much the By the Bay suite in the Mini coordinates with the soon-to-be retired Friends are Like Seashells products.
Thanks for stopping by!
