Need a wow card in a jiffy? Well, today Pearlescent or Shimmery Paper with the Seashells embossing folder will do the trick. In just a few minutes you can make these cards.
If you choose not to have the pop-up seashell that is a card that is done in 10 minutes. The pop-up seashell would take a few more steps but this Seashells 3D embossing folder with the Pearlescent or Shimmery paper is so pretty you do not need to do much to have pizzazz onto this card.
Tip to add color to embossed Pearlescent and Shimmery paper
So simple first emboss your paper. Using a stamping sponge, sponge lightly colors randomly. I used Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake ink. Just note that the Pearlescent paper doesn’t absorb ink like the cardstock so it takes a little bit to dry but not that long. So in short after you, sponge don’t touch for a few minutes.
The one on the shimmery paper I did a Square-Reef knot. If you are not sure how di knot is done CLICK HERE to see one of my older videos that I share on how to make the knot.
I added the pop-up shell on this one to give more depth to the card. I stamped a few pieces of cardstock and die-cut then emboss and cut out the shells to use as embellishments. I keep them in my stamp case, this way I have them ready to do when I use this set.
- Card base 11 x 4¼ score at 5½ or 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ (Crumb Cake or Early Espresso)
- Top layer 5-3/8 x 4-1/8 Pearlescent or Shimmery White
If you wish to add a popup shell use an extra piece of the card stock and die cut. Not sure how to align the stamp and die CLICK HERE for the tip video.
This paper is very light so it is perfect for layers but not for a card base. The look is amazing with the pearl effect.
I just added the Early Espresso with the antique slider for easy embellishment. So quick but elegant.
