Making this Woody and surfboard beach card with the new dies by Rubbernecker was so much fun. I used the new Woody, Palm Trees and surfboards from the Lifeguard Tower set paired with the Waves, Deckle Hills, Sun Moon, Grass #2 and Small Birds. Those high waves look perfect for surfing.
The Card Base, Waves and Sand
- Sponge on a light layer of clouds on the card base using an ink blending tool, cloud template and Tumbled Glass ink.
- Cut three sections of waves and two sand layers.
- Apply white embossing paste to the waves by dabbing it on with your finger or flat stylus.
- Sprinkle clear glitter on the embossing paste while it is still wet.
- Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layers using the ink pad direct to paper.
- Attach the three wave layers to the card base using double stick tape.
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape along the back of each wave to pop it up slightly from the card base.
- Attach the back sand layer to the card base using double stick tape and the front sand layer using strips of mounting tape.
- Use blue, gray, white, black and woodgrain cardstock to cut the woody.
- Attach the woodgrain sections back in the frame using double stick tape.
- Line up the woodgrain frame and attach it to the car base using glossy accents.
- Lightly apply Antique Linen ink to the woodgrain panel using a mini applicator.
- Assemble the wheels, attaching the pieces together using glossy accents and attach them to the car base using glossy accents.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the fenders and attach them to the car base.
- Use glossy accents to attach the bumpers and trim pieces. Hint: I use my reverse tweezers from my Garden Tool Kit when working with small pieces.
- Cut the surfboard using bright yellow cardstock, color both ends with an orange marker and attach to the top of the car.
- Attach the Woody to the sand layer using pieces of mounting tape.
The Palm Trees and Sun
- Use green and Kraft cardstock to cut the palm tree sections.
- Apply Vintage Photo ink to the coconuts and tree trunks.
- Attach the palm fronds and coconuts to the trunk using glossy accents.
- Tuck the trees in behind the sand layers and attach to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
- Cut the sun using bright yellow cardstock , apply sparkle using a shimmer pen and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
Finish the Woody and Surfboard Beach Card
- Use green cardstock to cut the grass sprigs and tuck them in behind the sand layers and attach using glossy accents.
- Use bright yellow and orange cardstock to cut two surfboards. Color the top of the yellow board using an orange marker.
- Tuck the surfboards in behind the sand layers and attach using mounting tape.
- Cut the birds using white cardstock, color the wings using a gray marker and attach them to the card base for the finishing touch using tiny pieces of mounting tape.
There will be more Woody and surfboard beach cards in the future as I love making them. It’s been in the mid to high 90s here in Florida the last couple of weeks and perfect weather for the beach. I hope you have been inspired to get out your beach dies and make a summer scene card of your own. Here is a link to Woody beach cards on Pinterest if you would like more inspiration.
