Hello all, how cold has it been this week!! So I thought a bit of seaside fun was in order.
First I used my template to make a pop up box card and cut out some black card then white card for the matting and layering for each panel.
I then stamped two of each of the Hobby Art Shells Stamp images, I stamped the beach huts from the Summer Holiday Stamp Set three times. I coloured them all in using watercolour pencils and then cut them all out.
Once they were all cut out I decided they needed lifting, so I got some Diamond Sparkle Medium and some Cut and Dry Foam and foiled all of the images, as follows:On a crafting mat I placed about half a teaspoon of the Sparkle Medium and dabbed it with the Cut and Dry until it was absorbed, then transferred that to the cut out image by dabbing once again.
I then stuck the above images onto the three top smaller panels using either Cosmic Shimmer or mounting foam.
I then cut two strips of card 2.5cm x 10cm and creased each end at 1.5mm and glued inside the box to create the struts to hold the embellishments. I cut some acetate 2 cm x 10 cm and stuck one of the larger imaged onto one end before placing on the struts. I created a little birthday sentiment using peels offs and to put a little bit of humour into it I crossed out the W from the Wishes and replaced it with an F, oh dear, did I really do that :o) I thought for a little added texture and if it wasn't going through the post some fine netting could be threaded through the struts to look like fishing net.
Here's a coupe of close ups and the card again from two angles.
Just a little bit of fun, hope you enjoyed it and thanks as always for looking at the blog. See you again next week, Love Jan -x-
