Seashell Friendship Slimline Card by Jean Okimoto

P1018529

Celebrate a special friendship with a seashell slimline.  The Grand Tulip Shell - ink-blended and spritzed with gold - is a great design for slimlines.  Add textured Wood Grain Planks, a quick greeting and Fairy Gemstones.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a beachy summer design.

I started with a stash scrap of ink-blended cardstock, then spritzed and splattered it with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Dry the ink, then diecut the cardstock with the Grand Tulip Shell background.  Cut the detailed white overlay from heavy white cardstock.  

Cut Wood Grain Planks from heavy white cardstock - roll it through the machine lengthwise twice for best results.  Attach 5 of them to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  

Cut the straight rope piece from the End of My Rope Set from heavy white cardstock.

Cut Hello Friend Posh Script from light and dark 6x6 sheet in the Ocean Blue Collection.  

Here's a tip - cut the detailed overlay and leave it in the die.  Remove the tiny offcuts.  Attach several strips of lined doublestick tape and roll it through the machine again to cut the tape.  Leave the diecut in the die and carefully remove the liner, then press the sticky diecut firmly onto the solid background.  Use a piercing tool to remove the greeting from the die.

Attach the pale lavender/blue Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized layer of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.
