Hello Seashells

Hi! It’s Candy back to share a nautical card.

This card uses one of the brand new Peel-Offs from Elizabeth Craft Designs – Seashells! I love everything related to the sea, so I was particularly happy to play with these.

1. Cut card base 4 1/4″ x 11″. Score at center and fold.

2. Cut patterned paper 4″ x 5 1/4″. Adhere to card base.

3. Adhere Double-Sided Adhesive to white cardstock.

4. Peel off protective backing and turn it over on the table in front of you with the shiny side up. Peel off the two seashells and the crab sticker as shown in the picture above and place stickers sticky side UP on protective backing. Pick up adhesive covered cardstock and turn it over onto stickers. Turn over so the cardstock is on the bottom and peel off protective backing. Stickers will now be right side up on top of adhesive.

5. Cover adhesive with Silk Microfine Glitter. Shake off excess. Burnish with finger.

6. Repeat steps 3-5 until all stickers are coated. Use Fire Opal, Orange and Forest Green Silk Microfine Glitter for the other seashells.

7. Color Cool Diamond glittered seashells and crab with Copics or other alcohol-based markers as shown in the photo above, blending from lighter to darker tones for dimension.

8. Cut out all images.

9. Adhere knotted twine fishing net to card.

10. Use dimensional foam adhesive to adhere crab and seashells to card.

11. Die cut Hello from black and white cardstock. Layer and adhere with white on top, slightly offset to allow black to show as a shadow.

    I love this card. Did you make the netting, or did you purchase it? If you made it, how. If you purchased it, who makes it and where can I get it?

      Hi Jan! I purchased the fish net at Michael’s. It is located by the glass marbles, rocks and other things for filling glass jars. It is called Decorative Fish Net.

    Hi Candy-you have done a wonderful job on this card! I too have a love of the oceans and seas, I am a retired divemaster and these new peel off’s are such fun. There are so many different cards and scrapbooking pages these will work so well with. Thank you and ECD!
