Hello Crafty Friends! Today, I am sharing a Beach card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #126- Beach vs. Mountains using the inspiration board below.
For my first card, I choose to create a beach themed card. After living near the beach for over 20 years, I will be moving closer to the mountains at the end of this month so I felt that it would be appropriate to create a beach card to keep my memories of the beach alive.
To start, I ink blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with the Cloudy Stencil on White Cardstock sized 4.25″ x 5.5.” I die cut two sand hills out of White Cardstock with Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders. I ink blended the hills with Antique Linen Distress Oxide and added some texture with Copic Markers.
I die cut one sand hill with the word “SAND” using Henry’s ABC’s and the other sand hill with the snow angel from Snow Much Fun. I inked the edges of the wording, snow angel, and top of the sand hills with Versamark Ink and sprinkled Golden Sand Embossing Powder. I heat set the powder and set the hills aside to dry. Once dried, I glued acetate onto the back of the “SAND” wording and snow angel. I added foam tape all around the edges and sprinkled some sand embossing powder inside the wording and snow angel. I covered the back of the “SAND” wording with yellow cardstock and the snow angel with cardstock ink blending with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. I removed the backing on the foam tape and attached the hills onto the cloudy background.
The palm trees were die cut from Palm Trees set and ink blended with Doe, Walnut, Celery Stalk, and Freshly Cut Grass Ink.
I added bears from Snow Much Fun, a sandcastle and bucket from Life is Good which were all coloured with Copics listed below.
I finished off the card by added a rectangle frame using paper from Really Rainbow Paper Pack and white heat embossed sentiments from Offset Sayings Birthday.
The Challenge is open until Sunday, June 19th at 11:59PM ET. All entries will have a chance to win a $50 Lawn Fawn gift certificate and you will also have a chance to be featured in the Lawn Fawnatics Blog!
