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!


Karen, I am in awe of this precious Beach in a Box. How wonderfully creative and clever. It draws the eye right in from front to back and right up to the plaine and clouds. You are a very talented girl!!!

A beautiful card! Such attention to details. Thanks for sharing your talents, I'm enjoying this over and over again!!

OMGoodness..what a superb project...so fun and summery!!

WOW! what an idea, an so well done. I would love a more detailed tutorial on this one. I can't figure out how the chair would fold when close,nor the closing of the tree an sky. Hummm! sure is cute though.
