Beach in a Box Tutorial by Karen Amidon

Wowzers! What a fun project from Karen Amidon!

Karen uses the following IO products:  A5364 Sunny Smiles, DIE109-C Single Brach Chair, DIE186-G Plane with Banner, DIE177-K Beach Chairs, Die176-E Mini Shells, DIE182-K Mini Beach Fun Set, DIE101-D Ocean Border, DIE068-A Cloud Die Cut Trio, DIE191-E Palm Trees

 
 
 There is so much going on inside this small pop-up box card! The Plane that's flying through the Cloud Trio actually comes with a banner that is trailing behind it. I thought about adding, "Eat at Joe's Crab Shack" but I wanted the card when fold to fit into an A2 envelope! 
 
 
This is the view of the front when the box is closing flat.
For the beach scene the Palm Trees were placed in the back along with some waves created with the Ocean Border Die
 
 
You can see the different layers here with the side view. The sand castles have a light cover of sand on them. I have used a waxed rope for the handle on the pail. These dies and the shovel all come in the Mini Beach Fun Set. I also tucked a few Mini Shells in the pail.
 
 
The Beach Chair that I used inside the box comes as a set of two. Soon I will be sharing a really fun card I made with those! The Single Beach Chair on the flap comes as shown with the pair of flip flops...loving these!
 
 
Here's the back of the box with its flaps down. This shows that darling Mini Shell Set. I used four out of the 7 shells that come in the full set. This sentiment seem to fit perfectly..."Sending Sunny Summer Smiles"!
 
 
Folding flat, ready to mail, and I'm dreaming of a beach trip!

Have a great day!

Sweet Autumn by Jenny Gropp

Jenny Gropp shares a gorgeous project today!

Jenny used Spooky Trees #H7759, Square Shaker Frame Die #DIE002-Z, Border Duo 1 #DIE017-V, Circle Cut Out Border #DIE171-K, All Seasons #C3534 for her project.

 
When I saw the new Spooky Trees image I knew I'd be airbrushing! Love doing silhouette scenes like this! I used the Border Duo 1 Die to cut the edges of the card base to make it a little more interesting than a plain square card.
 
I used a circle punch to make a mask for the moon.  An unusual color combo for sure!
 
I used a square nestie to cut out the scene and added the piercing around the inside edge of the die. I added the Square Shaker Frame die as an additional layer.
 
On the inside, I added a the Autumn Quote and the Circle Cut Out Border on the ivory liner.
 
 other supplies:

Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Natural White, Pink
Other: Seam Binding Ribbon, Spellbinder's Square Nesties, Bow Easy, Enamel Adhesive Embellsihments, Foam Tape, Sizzix Embossing Folder, Piercing Tool, Perfect Layer Rulers
