Sea Shell Card

I decided to join in on the very first challenge over at Stampy Land, a lovely new blog I was referred to by one of the ladies at Card Camp. This week's challenge was to create a card with the theme "A Day At The Beach"... nice and easy and definitely do-able.




I used an old Stampin' Up stamp for the image and coloured it with distress inks, deepening the shadows and recesses of the shell with black ink. I layered up two of the images with foam tape to give extra dimension, then embossed and cut the rectangle with a Nestability. The white cardstock was embossed with a cuttlebug folder and I also added some machine stitching around the edge of the second mat. The sentiment is computer generated, printed on the card before stamping and colouring.

I thought the card was beautiful at first glance but then I read the sentiment, and then it took my breath away.
