Shimmer Sheetz Seashell Pocket Cards
By Judi Kauffman
I’m back with cards that use a couple of the extra Shimmer Sheetz seashells I made for my blog post on July 17, 2016*.
This time, each shell is positioned atop a pocket, and combined with assorted pre-printed tags and layers of designer paper and glittery cardstock. Polka dot Washi tape in soft colors echoes the beachy blue tones. Bright primary color brads echo the strong primary colors in the pockets and tags and tie things together. There is a larger brad on the tag, three small ones at the other corners, forming a visual frame.
The card bases are Soft Finish Cardstock (color on the outside, white on the inside!), 5” x 7”, folded at the left side. The sparkly 4” x 6” layer is purchased glittery cardstock in a sandy tan color, or you could make your own with Warm Diamond Silk Microfiine Glitter on top of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and sandy tan cardstock.
Option: If you want to use these cards for a birthday or other special occasion, tuck something into the pocket: a gift card, tickets to a movie, a coupon redeemable for chores or babysitting. And write a personal note on the back of the printed tag.
The cards are simple so no step by step instructions this time. Use the photos to help you duplicate them as shown or to inspire your own version!
