Friends Are Like Seashells

April 18, 2021

I was so excited to make my first official card making video for Youtube today. Watch Me Today! There are a few moments where my mind went blank, but hey that's me in real life so welcome to reality with Bec.

I had a lot of fun with these cards as they look complicated but really the 'Friends Are Like Seashells' Suite just makes it so easy. A little blending and gold leaf and you can make anything pop off the page! 

I used the shimmer white paper with our new blending brushes and it just makes life so much easier. The smooth texture of the paper makes the ink just slide right over and bland beautifully with the surrounding colours. Even thought he pictures do not show it this paper has an amazing shimmer that comes through and gives it a unique look. 

I used the die cut from the 'In Bloom' Set to frame the beautiful Seashell sentiment and give it a real shape over such a simple card. The gold on black I felt gave a sophisticated look so i followed that with the embossing of the sentiment on a thin black strip to allow the background to shine. 

This card just shows that you can start with a simple base but make each card so different with pops of colour and sentiments. I used the Pearlescent Specialty Paper in this card below. Add a little extra bling or ribbon and really make it your own.
