Friends Are Like Seashells--- Paper Players Challenge PP552

August 1, 2021

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The amazing Joanne is our hostess this week and she has such a fun theme challenge for all of us!  "Beside the Seaside" is one of my favorite places to be.  We can't wait to see all your creations! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a Night of Navy background on my card front.  I used copper foil and embossed it with the Stampin' Up! Seashells folder.  The starfish and sanddollar were stamped on vellum using the SU Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set.  I heat embossed the vellum with Versa Fine ink and copper embossing powder.  I fussy cut the items and added them on top of the foil  I used the stamp stamp set for the sentiment.  Opal Rounds and twine were used to complete my card.
