  • 1. For the beachy card embellishment, use the teal paint to stamp the clamsheel onto ivory cardstock. Cut out the design, leaving a 1/8" border. Add sand without making a mess by cutting a 1-1/2" circle from the sandpaper. Use foam tape to adhere the design to the sandpaper circle.
  • 2. Punch a 2" circle from the teal card stock. Punch a hole in the top of the circle. Use double-sided tape to adhere the sandpaper circle to the teal circle.
  • 3. For the background, use the teal paint to stamp the swirl pattern onto a 3-1/2"x5" ivory cardstock rectangle. Cut a 1-1/2"x3-1/2" strip from orange card stock and use double-sided tape to adhere it to the swirl background.
  • 4. To attach the beachy card embellishment to the background, wrap the yellow ribbon around the orange strip and run the end through the teal circle hole; knot ends. Use double-sided tape to adhere the swirl background to the card.
  • 5. To add a little glitz, use the cement to adhere the rhinestones to the seashell.
  • 6. Print the party details on the inside of the card.
