We shell be together soon - Hero Arts Seashells InAPinch - Monochrome

Was inspired by Sally Traidman of Hero Arts to make this Monochrome card. You can click here to see her card.

First attempt I was not liking the noticeable impressions that the dies were leaving in the cardstock from tiny metal pieces not cut off after clipping the dies. Hubby gave me his wire cutters and that remedied the problem.

Used Hero Arts Pebble cardstock to cut the dies out and heat emboss the sentiment using Sand embossing powder. Base cardstock is Hero Arts Sand cardstock.
