Sea Shells and Sequins


I have been wanting to try out the Double Z Fold card that I first saw on Meena's blog, and this is the result.

I started with the orange base card, stamped some seaweed on the trimmed patterned paper from the Kaiser Craft pad, Botanica.

I then stamped the images using just one large stamp from Kiwistamping, and cutting it up and using the images I wanted, after colouring them with chalks.

The sentiment was silver embossed, die cut and mounted on a silver die cut doily, then attached to the end of the small panel across the base.

Some sequins from a mix of gold, copper and bronze finished the card.

  1. Hi dear Maxine,

    This card is FAB with such nice sea shells and stuff on it. I like the layout and the background looks like such nice designer paper. The main sentiment is perfectly done and the doily behind matches so well.

    Thank you for your visit, love them,


  2. Such a cleverly composed card. I love the way you've used a variety of techniques to create it.
    Glad you dropped it onto the front porch at 613 Avenue Create.
