Today I’m sharing a sandcastle beach card with colorful beach toys and a sparkly ocean background.  For this project I used the newly released Sandcastle and Sand Toys paired with the Deckle Hills, Mixable Flower Stack, Birds, Inside Scallop Nested Set and Nested Rectangle Set

Make a sandcastle beach card with colorful beach toys and a sparkly ocean background using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Card Base and Ocean Sky Background

  • Cut the white and teal layers using the two largest dies from the Inside Scallop set.
  • Use the Nested Rectangle set to cut a slim frame for the scene.
  • Mask off the outer edges of the white layer.
  • Cut a straight mask across the middle of the white layer and then use a blender brush to apply Beachside Ink.
  • Remove the mask and then use a cloud stencil and blender brush to create the sky area using Beachside ink.
  • Remove the mask and dab a light layer of white embossing paste to the water using your finger.
  • Sprinkle the embossing paste with clean glitter and then set it aside to dry.
  • Attach the scene layer to the teal layer using ATG adhesive and then attach the two layers to the A2 sized card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Apply 1/8″double stick tape to the back of the teal frame and attach it to the scene base.

The Sandcastle and Sand Layer

  • Use Kraft cardstock to cut the sand layer and the Sandcastle.
  • Cut the flag and flagpole using white and red cardstock.
  • Use the Inside Scallop die to the cut the bottom and sides of the sand layer so it will match the scene layer.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layer and sandcastle sections by swiping the ink pad directly over each piece.
  • Attach the sand layer to the scene layer using a strip of mounting tape.
  • Assemble the sandcastle pieces and attach them together using strips of rolled up double stick tape.
  • Attach the red flag to the flagpole using glossy accents and then attach it to the tower of the sandcastle using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the sandcastle in behind the sand layer and attach in place using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Note:  The Sandcastle set comes in several pieces that can be used to create different  sized sandcastles.

Complete the Scene

  • Cut the Sand Toys using bright pink, teal and bright yellow cardstock.
  • Use bright yellow cardstock to cut the sun. Note:  The flower die creates such a fun sun with the thin petals looking like sun rays.
  • Attach the sun to the frame using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Assemble the toy sections and attach using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the ball in behind the sand layer and attach using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach the buck using a piece of mounting tape and the shovel and rake using glossy accents.
  • Finish by coloring the bird using Chill ink and a mini applicator and attach it to the sky area using a piece of mounting tape.
