As I mentioned in my previous blog, it was my youngest daughter’s birthday at the weekend, and my oldest daughter wanted me to make a card for her to give to her sister. Both of my girls absolutely LOVE going to the beach, so this Seaside Girls set that I just received from Hello Bluebird, was absolutely perfect!
I stamped out the images in Gina K Onyx Black Amalgam ink, and coloured them using Copic markers. I coloured up the two adorable little girls to look like my daughters 🙂
Next, I used the Big Shadow Box Die set from Heffy Doodle to create the display box for my scene. It was super easy to do – Heffy Doodle have some videos on their YouTube channel / website if you want a walk-through demonstration. I used Sea Glass cardstock from Concord and 9th for the box, and Wheat (also C9) for the sand dunes. I then used a pale blue for the sea (not sure what brand, sorry!). I used double-sided tape to attach the sand dunes and sea to the sides of the box, at different depths, then used liquid glue along the bottom of the wave to ensure it was secured right at the front of my scene.
I then used liquid glue to adhere each of my elements to the scene, with the little girl at the front adhered behind the wave, as if she’s dipping her feet into the sea!
I die cut a cloud using a die from the same set and glued it to the background. I then used the two frame dies from the set taped together to make a white frame for the front of the card. Finally, I used the larger frame die cut out of white card to adhere to the back of the card, so there is space to write a message.
I flipped my card over and stamped my sentiment (which is from the same Seaside Girls set) and added one of the seagulls from the set also. For a finishing touch, I used Concord & 9th Glossy Details along the top of the wave to create the “foam”.
I hope you love this card as much as I do!! I can’t get enough of interactive and display cards! Thanks for joining me again, and see you soon!
