CASE the catalog - So Many Shells
I copied this card, as best as I could, from page 39 of the Annual catalog. Easy enough, but so much more to it than I first picked this card to copy!
Wood Textures designer series paper and Vellum card stock are both cut 3" x 4 1/4". The vellum is embossed, and then attached cock-eyed with glue dots. The glue dots are conveniently located underneath sequins and some of the shells.
Linen Thread is wrapped around those layered pieces, and tied in a bow. I wrapped it 3 times before I tied it off. Attached to the front of my Whisper White Thick card base with Fast Fuse for a sturdy hold.
Shells are stamped and hand-cut. I attached most of them with liquid glue. Only the Peekaboo Peach shell is popped up with a dimensional.
The greeting piece does not have the fancy corners like the catalog sample, because I could not figure out what they used to get the corners like that. The Ticket Corner punch retired years ago, and I couldn't find any Framelits that worked...so I left them.
It also took me a while to find a current stamp set in my collection that had something for the "sprinkles" on the card base. I finally found something appropriate in the Swirly Bird stamp set. I used Crumb Cake ink, but stamped off one time to make it lighter.
Added Iridescent Sequins at the very end with liquid glue.
