Seashell Card & Journal Set

I created this card using real sand and seashells.

How I made it....First I used 2 different color blue cardstock. The light color is the main card and the dark blue is just a strip of paper to resemble water. I used my cuttlebug to emboss both the card and the dark blue strip of paper then I adhered them together. To make the sand I mixed my sand with Mod Podge in a small container then I smeared the mixure (mixture should by thick) on my card. I then put a small amount of glue on my seashells and tucked them in the sand just like you would sea them at a real beach. I used a heat gun to dry the sand quickly or it will warp the card due to the amount of moisture in the mixture. ENJOY!!!


This is the matching Journal.
