how the SHELL are you?

Howdy, friends! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m delighted to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a super fun ‘just because’ note card featuring Shell Brads, Sea Shore Brads and Fish Brads which were just the ticket to pair with this adorable Brutus Monroe stamp set!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner. I stamped the image in the bottom right corner, colored it with alcohol markers, and added a stamped sentiment and a few more bubbles drawn with a micron pen. I brushed on a super light layer of Ranger tumbled glass distress ink for just a smidgeon of color, and added the Shell Brads, Sea Shore Brads and Fish Brads. I adhered the panel on a piece of blue craft foam and then to the card base. The finishing touch, after adhering the inside layers, was adding Nuvo Ivory Seashell Crystal Drops to the pearl in the shell.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and layered it on CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue cardstock. Since this is a note card, I left plenty of room to write a custom message.

And one more peek… really loving how this turned out! Super easy CAS design that would be so fun to mass produce to create a set to give as a gift! Might have to think about that for a minute! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
