Diecut the Grand Tulip Shell from Recycled Paper by Jean Okimoto


Do you ever save paper because it's just too pretty to toss...like the cover of  the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad? Here's a way to use the glossy soft pastel-striped cover sheet - diecut the Grand Tulip Shell background, then top it with a delicate gold Polished Foil diecut.  

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with bit of up-cycling on a slimline friendship card.  My class kits are filled with Memory Box papers and cardstock.  I buy a lot of extras in addition to my Design Team supplies - and accumulate a lot of covers from the paper and cardstock packs.  Many are too pretty to throw into the recycle bin.  


I cut the soft rainbow pastels cover of the Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad - the colors were perfect for the Grand Tulip Shell background.  Pressure-embossing with the detailed Grand Tulip Shell die added dimension - and made it easier to attach the detailed gold layer.  

Cut the medium-sized Stylish Rectangle from the creamy yellow sheet in the 6x6 Sunny Orange Collection.  Spritz the large center offcut with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Airdry it for a few minutes, then heat-set it.  

Color Clear Fairy Jewels with a dark yellow Sharpie or Copic Marker and set them aside to dry.

Stamp the greeting - from the Joyful Moments Clear Stamp Set - on a medium yellow sheet from the Sunny Orange Collection with Melon Impress Fresh Ink.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.

Attach the diecuts and jewels to a pink slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").

You can also create a striped background of the Delicate Pastels with 1" wide strips of the actual 6x6 sheets and diecut it for a sparkly shell.  It would be a pretty card for a summer birthday celebration.

Thanks for visiting - keep cool and safe this weekend!





soft and pretty is the name of the game for this card. Very nice design.
