I used a base card of Gumball Green cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". The only layer I added is a piece of Whisper White measuring 4" x 5 1/4". I colored a sky and sand using my pastels. I do so love working with these. Once it was all colored, I attached it to the base card using runner adhesive.
The greeting I chose comes from the retired stamp set called Occasional Quotes. I stamped it using Pacific Point ink directly onto the card stock. I wanted to have a sun on my card because I think of the sunshine when I think of the beach. The beach in my mind is one I visit only at sunset but I went with the sun being up instead. I punched out the large flower from the boho blossom punch. I used Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight card stock. I edged the daffodil one using the tangerine ink and then layered it onto the tangerine one using liquid glue. I attached it to the card with a dimensional. I then added some yellow glitter glue to the sun. I did not realize until I finished adding it that it kind of looks like a starfish. I was impressed with my skill to incorporate this into the card. Just kidding!!
I first made this little car back in March for my anniversary card for my husband. I made 2 of them so there would be a boy and a girl car and used a larger card. Today, I wanted to make just one. Here is a list of the punches I used:
Roof/Lower Body - wide oval
Hood - wide oval trimmed and placed long ways on the body
Windshield - large oval
Fenders - large oval trimmed just a little on one end
Rear view Mirror - retired horizontal slot
Headlights - 1/2" circle layered onto a 3/4" circle
Side Bumpers - word window, cut in half
Front Bumper - decorative label
Tires - modern label, cut in half
License Plate - modern label end punched on edge of card stock
Flowers - small scallop flower from the itty bitty punch pack
The colors of card stock used for the car are: Gumball Green, Basic Black, Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Vellum Paper. All pieces were assembled using a liquid glue. I wrote "FUN" on the license plate with a black marker. I also added yellow, orange, pink and turquoise glitter glue to the flowers on the car.
To make my surfboards, I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and drew my own. I then cut them out using my scissors. I brushed the edges of these with Crumb Cake ink. For the stripes on them, I pulled out scraps of Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Pacific Point card stock and cut strips. I attached them to the surfboards using liquid glue and attached the finished boards to the car with the same liquid glue.
Once the boards and car were complete and dried, I attach it to the card using dimensionals.
I hope this little car gives you images of fun on the beach. I personally do not surf but I always enjoy watching others.
Thanks for stopping by today and I will see you back here tomorrow!! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
