I used Spellbinders dies to make my card. I created the card base and central frame, on the Diamonds Effects largest frame, die cutting with A2 Matting Basics A. Then, I decided I wanted to make a double frame for the seashell with White Pearl Linen, to make it stand out from the background. To make the double frame I die cut eight corners from the A2 Filigree Delight. I layered the first four with the filigree ends towards the inside, trying to achieve a square shape. Then I layered the other four with the filigree ends towards the outside, on top of the first frame. This results in a very elegant, nicely layered base for a focal image or sentiment.
To put together my design I added a free seashell image I found on the internet, customized it to match the color of my cardstock and printed it three times on White Pearl Linen. Once cut I made a decoupage with them which worked out nice with the rest of the design. To finish, I added some pearls of various sizes combined with vynil stickers and heat embossed a sentiment (best wishes) on Vellum in silver.
