Nautilus Shell Card

Hello Blogging Friends!!

  I hope you are all safe and healthy and enjoying the extra crafting time!  I have been busy making some happy mail! 

Here is a card I made with the Hero Arts Nautilus Fancy die:


Neenah Desert Storm paper
Patterned paper
Ombre paper
Shimmer paper
Brown ink
Copper embossing powder
Sentiment stamp
Foam tape

For this A2 card I started by making the card base with the Neenah Desert Storm paper.  I took a piece of Patterned paper and ripped the edges with my tearing ruler, inked the edges with brown ink and added that to the card base.  I took the Hero Arts Nautilus Fancy die and the Shimmer paper and I cut out the top part of the shell.  I took the Ombre paper and cut it out with the frame die and then I pieced the shell together, added some Foam tape to the back of the shell and added that to the card.  I took the Sentiment stamp and Versamark and stamped that onto the card and I heat embossed it with Copper embossing powder.  

Since we live on the Jersey Shore I love collecting sea shells at the beach and decorating my house with them.  I am entering this card in the Stay Crafty with Hero Arts Challenge #3 ~ Home Inspiration!  We just had our kitchen re-modeled last year with a Nautical theme so this was a fun challenge for me!

Here is a picture of my wall that inspired me to make this card:
