Beach Scene Card

Hello! I am so glad I was able to take a night off from work to finish this card. I am still on call but not going to work at the set time allowed me to finish this card.

I created this card to participate in the latest LawnFawnatics challenge. I don't have a beach or summer themed Lawn Fawn stamp set, so I challenged myself to come up with a beach scene using my supplies. Also, I just purchased Lawn Fawn Stamp sets from a re-seller. I am also challenging myself to use my newly bought supplies first before buying more...unless, I really need it.

I created a mask using Taylored Expression Rolling Clouds die. I applied a blue chalk ink using a Picket Fence Life Changing Brush.

For the ocean, I fussy cut an Echo Park patterned paper which has a wave border design. I adhered the borders underneath the inked sky, making sure the border somehow overlaps each other.

For the beach, I die cut two different tones of kraft cardstock using Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders die. I heat embossed one of the layers with Hero Arts Sand embossing powder. I adhered this to the bottom of the wave borders.

For the focal point of the card, I stamped the image on different colored cardstocks, making sure it follows a rainbow pattern. The stamp is from LF Monster Mash stamp set. I masked off the face on the original stamp so I can use the smiley faces from the LF Love Letters stamp set instead. I fussy cut the monsters. I lined the edges with Memento Tuxedo Black marker to hide off any imperfections from fussy cutting.

I die cut a phone on black cardstock three times using the die from LF Selfie Frames die set. I adhered these die cuts on top of the other to create a dimensional look. It also gives stability to the frame.

For the sentiment, I needed a longer speech bubble that will fit the sentiment from the LF Monster Mash. I partially die cut the speech bubble from the LF Selfie Frames. I moved this die, lining the cut area with the cutting part of the die, then ran this through the Sizzix Big Shot. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onxy Black ink, and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I positioned the monsters on how I like them to look inside the frame. I added Gina K. Connect glue to the back of the monsters. I also applied the same glue to the back of the phone frame. I adhered the sentiment using foam adhesive.

I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter pen to add shimmer to the waves. I applied small dots of pink Nuvo Jewel Drops for cheeks on the monster.

I trimmed off an 8th of an inch along the sides. I adhered this to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Jade cardstrock from Paper Source. I then adhered this to a top folding white note card.

I am sending this card to my eldest son, Rudy, who is in Basic Training right now. It is his 18th birthday next Sunday. The number of monsters coincides with the same number of his family members.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day.
