Gilded Seashells

 All this lovely summer weather has inspired me to play with the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set. This versatile set has a matching embossing folder as well as matching dies. The large die-cut seascape can be embossed for extra texture & detail. Stunning!



Here I die-cut the large die using the  Soft Succulent Shimmer Vellum. Then I added texture by embossing the die-cut with the matching 3D Embossing Folder. A few flakes of Gold Gilding add the golden touch. The flakes are easy to apply. I smudged some VersaMark ink over the embossed die-cut, then sprinkled the Heat & Stick powder over the ink, then melted the powder with a heat tool. The Gilding Flakes were then rubbed over these raised areas to create this golden effect.

By matting the die-cut onto Gold Foil cardstock, the highlights really pop! A simple gold embossed sentiment & a Soft Succulent card base finish things off. This card would be perfect for a beach wedding or golden wedding anniversary or any other special occasion.

And speaking of special occasions...
