Designer Tip: Tis is a wonderful mix of papers and textures



  1. Card front: Place a blank card with the fold on your left. Cover with Seaside green fence paper. Glue a 4 7/8"x6 3/8" Seaside tan paper centered. Glue a 5"x3/4" Seaside star stripe paper, 1/4" from the bottom. Knot the center of a 7 1/2" rust twill ribbon. Zot the knot on the center of a 3"x6 1/2" Seaside dark blue shell paper. Wrap the ends around the top and bottom, and glue 1/2" from the fold on the card front.
  2. Mat a 3" square of Seaside light teal paper on a Seaside dark gray paper with 1/8" borders. Glue 1 1/2" from the fold, and 3/4" from the top.
  3. Use the small shell cutting die to cut a gold hammered die-cut. Back with Seaside dark gray paper, and cut close to the die-cut edge. Ink the edges. Glue on the left of the 3" square. Back two sea shell Dazzles, and cut close to the Dazzles edge. Glue one on the left of the die-cut, and foam tape the other on the right. Make a small puddle of glue between the Dazzles, and push small beads, sequins, and a pearl into the glue. Thread brown jute twine in two buttons, and blue on the shells. Place Star, she, and swirl Dazzles as shown.
  4. Glue a wood lighthouse next to the ribbon on the bottom. Glue a pearl at the top. Place small star Dazzles on the star border.
  5. Sand the Foiled Fancies words. Ink the edges. You can go back over the letters with a Blender pen or alcohol to remove any smudges of ink. Glue in place.
  6. Card inside: Glue a shell stripe paper on the top and bottom of a 4 1/2"x5 1/2" Seaside tan paper. Add Dazzles, wood, and sanded and inked Foiled Fancies.
