Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Retirement Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. Are you ready for another week? I can’t believe that we’re in the last week of January already. This month really flew by.

For today’s card I used my favorite set from the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle. Here’s my card for today.

This time I used my Uplines colors and sketch for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Shimmery White paper using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of Petal Pink cardstock to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sand dollar image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Shimmery White paper. I cut the image out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the sand dollar to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a thin strip of Shimmery White paper. I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Mint Macaron cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front. I tied a small bow using the1/4″ Coastal Cabana Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the sand dollar using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the largest shell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamped off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set I stamped the largest shell in Petal Pink Ink, the sand dollar in Sahara Sand Ink and the seaweed in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
