“Friends are like seashells, you collect them along the way!” And in my life I have been blessed to have collected many! Some have been life-long friends. Some are are recent friends that I know I will eventually be able to call life-long friends. Some were friends because of our common circumstance. And of course, there have been those who I thought were friends. It happens. Their loss!
Today I’m sharing several cards I’ve created using Friends are like Seashells stamp set. The first two pictured below use the Pearlescent paper Stampin’ Up! sells along with Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper. I included the items I used to create these two cards at the end of the item showcase at the bottom of this post. The video includes the process for creating your OWN pearlescent paper and a card using it. You may have already seen other videos on this technique. I like it because it is quick and simple, and you can create peralized paper in any color you want. By the way, I love this entire suite of products!
The easel card base requires two pieces of card stock. The first piece measures 4-1/4″ x 11″ and it is scored at 5-1/2″ and 8-1/4″. The second piece measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. To see how to assemble an easel card, Splitcoaststampers has a good tutorial.
And finally, my video! I hope you enjoy it! Happy Stamping!
