I have a really sweet idea for you today using the Seaside Shore Suite of products. I designed this card as an extra card when playing with my class to go this month.
First, to make the seashell, take a 2" Scallop Circle, cut from the NEW 141705 Layering Circles Framelits. Cut it down so that you have about 40% of the circle, then grab a pair of paper snips and make a cut every second scallop. Cut a small rectangle from the scrap paper and you're ready to go!
I used a bone folder to shape my seashell so that it would look more realistic, and of course I added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to the stamped images and to the top of my "framelit art" seashell. Supplies & the full set of measurements are below.

- Using Mint Macaron Ink, stamp the seashell pattern randomly on the Mint Macaron Card Stock (layer 3).
- Use a Stampin Sponge, to sponge the outside edges of this layer with Mint Macaron Ink.
- Use Snail Adhesive to attach layers 1-5, then set the card aside for a moment.
- Using paper snips, cut the scalloped circle down to about 40%. First, cut it in half, then trim 4 scallops off each side as shown in the photo
- Cut into every second scallop with paper snips to make the shell look separated.
- Using paper snips, freehand cut a small rectangle to go underneath the tip of the seashell. Use a glue dot to attach it to the seashell
- Use a bone folder to shape the seashell, so it looks more realistic.
- Use your clear Wink of Stella brush to add a touch of sheen to the sea shell, and to the sea shells that you stamped on the card.
- Attach the seashell to your card with Dimensionals.
- Add the knot to the middle of the sea shell with a glue dot and you are done. :)
