A Cute Beach Picnic Card!

I know that for so many people a beach picnic is one of the true markers of summer. And this year, it’s not as easy to just pack up and pop out for one of those summery hallmarks. We can still share the fun, the memories and the promise of MORE beach picnics to come with this cute picnic card. And it’s pretty easy to make with all the dies from Rubbernecker.

For this card I used the Nested Scallop with Half Holes, Picnic Table, Palm Trees, Cooler, Deckle Hills, Small Birds and Sun Moon.

Vertical Slimline Beach Card

Today I’m sharing a vertical slimline beach card. At first I was a bit intimidated on how to create a scene vertically on such a tall palette but I love how it all came together.  I imagined I was playing out in the water with the ball and looking back towards the beach.  Once I formed that picture in my mind it helped me figure how to create the layers of water and sand.  For this card I used the newly released Rubbernecker Slimline Solid Bubble Scallop paired with the Lifeguard Tower, Palm Trees, Sand Toys, Deckle Hills, Waves and the sun created using the Mixable Flower Stack 5107D.

Slimline cards are very popular in paper crafting right now and I had lots of fun creating all the layers for this vertical slimline beach card.

The Scene Base, Water and Sand

  • Use white cardstock to cut the slimline layer.
  • Use white cardstock to cut an 8.50″ x 7.00″ card base and score lengthwise at 3.50″.
  • Cut a white layer of cardstock 7.50″ x 2.50″ to use as the scene base.
  • Use a blender brush and Beachside ink to apply the cloudy blue sky background to the scene base.
  • Use Kraft cardstock and aqua cardstock to cut four sand and wave layers 2.50″ wide by 1.25″ high.  Note:  I wasn’t quite sure how many layers I would use for the scene so I cut several to have on hand to work with.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the waves and then sprinkle on clear glitter before the paste dries.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layers by swiping the ink pad directly over the pieces.

Attach the Scene Base, Water and Sand Layers

  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the scene base and attach it to the slimline scallop layer.
  • Use strips of mounting tape to attach the scallop and scene layers to the card base.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back lower portion of the waves and sand layers.
  • Begin attaching waves at the bottom of the card and work your way up the card, tucking each layer in behind the one before it. 
  • Repeat the steps by continuing up the card base with the sand layers.
  • I tucked a small piece of mounting tape in behind the center of each wave and sand layer to create a bit of distance so they wouldn’t look so flat. 

It was so much fun creating this vertical slimline beach card with all the different layers and images.

The Beach Images

  • Cut the lifeguard tower and pieces using red, white and Kraft cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the steps and railing pieces.
  • Attach the sections together using glossy accents and mounting tape.
  • Cut the palm trees using Kraft and green cardstock.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the trunks using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the tree and palm fronds together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the toys using red, white and yellow cardstock and attach the sections together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the sun using yellow cardstock.

Complete the Scene

  • Tuck the palm trees in behind the top sand layer and attach using thin strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach the lifeguard tower in behind the third sand layer using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the ball in behind a wave layer and attach using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach the shovel to the back of the bucket using glossy accents.
  • Use a piece of mounting tape to attach the bucket to the sand layer.
  • Attach the rake to the sand using glossy accents.
  • Finish the card by attaching the sun to the card base using a piece of mounting tape.

Creating this vertical slimline beach card with all the different layers and images was so much fun.

Making this vertical slimline beach card was such a fun challenge for me.   Over the past year or so I have turned to making cards with lots of different layouts.  Check out my Scooter Z Fold Beach Card and Double Shutter Scooter Beach Card to see very similar scenes using lots of the same images.  There really is no end to the possibilities.  Check out this Instagram link for more slimline card inspiration.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a great week.

Bright Colorful Images on a White Base

Bright colorful images like these fun beach accessories and toys really pop on a white card base.  I’m not sure this color combination would be my first choice for most of my projects but they are perfect for this set of images.  For this card I used Rubbernecker’s newly released Beach Bag and Sand Toys along with Flower Buds and Tiny Flower Buds framed with the Window with Double Stitch.  This would be the perfect card to send to a beach lover or as a beach party invitation.

Bright colorful images really pop on an a white background.  These fun beach accessories and toys were made with Rubbernecker dies.

The Card Base and Frame

  • Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card.
  • Cut the window frame once using white cardstock.
  • Cut a 5.25″ x 4.00″ piece of pink cardstock.
  • Place the pink cardstock on the cutting platform, line up the window frame evenly on the cardstock and cut.
  • Turn the outer pink frame face down on your work table and insert the white frame face inside the outer pink frame.
  • Attach the two frames together using double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape around the outer border of the frame and on the cross strips of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Bright colorful images look great on an all white card background.

The Bright Colorful Images

  • Cut the Beach Bag and Sand Toys images out using three bright colors of cardstock and use black cardstock to cut the base of the sunglasses..
  • Mix and match the colored pieces you want to use for the images and set the others aside to use for future projects.
  • Cut the flower buds and tiny flower buds and form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the images pieces together using glossy accents. 
  • Use rolled up double stick tape to attach the hat and hat rim sections together.
  • Attach the beach ball, flip flops, hat and sunglasses to the card base using glossy accents.

Shadow Box Frame Beach Scene and Video Tutorial

Today I’m sharing a shadow box frame beach scene with palm trees, sparkling ocean waves and lots of colorful beach accessories.  I love how the shadow box frame allowed me the depth to create a diorama with the layers of sand, waves and the blue cloudy sky in the background that draws the eye in. For this project I used the A2 Shadow Box Frame, Beach Bag, Sand Toys, Waves, Deckle Hills, Palm Trees, Sun Moon, Grass, Birds, Flower Buds, Tiny Flower Buds and Cloud Stencil.  As promised in my post yesterday I am sharing a short video on how to create the Shadow Box Frame.

This shadow box frame beach scene is so fun and inviting with it'scolorful beach accessories and sparkly ocean waves.

The Shadow Box Frame Beach Scene Background

  • Cut the shadow box frame using white cardstock.
  • Cut the 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ scene base using white cardstock.
  • Apply the cloudy sky background using Beachside ink, cloud stencil and a blender brush.
  • Use the Scor-Pal to add deeper score lines on the frame.
  • Fold the frame sides in and use the bone folder to crisp up the crease on each fold.
  • Apply 1/4″ double stick tape on the inside of the wide frame fold layers.
  • Turn the frame face down, and insert the scene base face down in the frame.
  • Remove the tape on both frame flaps, fold and secure the frame flaps closed.
  • Turn the frame face up and push down on the scene layer and secure it in place to the taped frame flaps.
  • Apply 1/4″ double stick to the back of the frame and attach it to the aqua A2 sized card base.
  • Be sure and check out my video below showing how to fold and secure the shadow box frame. 

The Sand and Waves

  • Cut two 5″ wide sand layers using the Deckle Hills die and Kraft cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layers by swiping the ink pad directly over the cardstock.
  • Cut three 4 7/8″ wide wave layers using aqua cardstock and the Waves dies..
  • Apply white embossing paste to the waves by dabbing it on with your finger or a palette knife.
  • Sprinkle clear glitter over the embossing paste while it is still wet and allow it to dry.
  • Apply a double thickness of mounting tape to the back of the back wave section and attach it to the scene base.
  • Continue by applying a double thickness of mounting tape to the second and third wave layers and attach them in the scene.
  • Apply double stick tape to the front of one of the sand layers and attach it inside to the bottom frame opening.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the second sand layer and attach it to the front of the frame.

This shadow box frame beach scene is so inviting with the colorful beach accessoires and sparkling ocean waves.

The Beach Scenery

  • Cut the palm trees using green and Kraft cardstock.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the tree trunks using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the palm fronds to the trunks using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the palm tress in behind the sand layer and attach them in place using small strips of mounting tape.
  • Cut the sun using bright yellow cardstock and attach it to the frame using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the grass sprigs.
  • Tuck the grass springs around the base of the palm trees and attach using glossy accents.
  • Cut the bird using white cardstock and apply Chill ink using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the bird to the scene background using a small piece of mounting tape.

The Beach Accessories

  • Cut the Beach Bag accessories, Sand Toys and flowers using bright green, teal and bright yellow cardstock. Note:  The sunglasses base was cut using black cardstock.
  • Emboss the beach bag to create a waffled appearance.  Note:  I used a retired embossing folder and don’t know the name of it.
  • Assemble the beach bag and sand toy pieces and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the beach ball in behind the back sand layer to appear floating on the water and attach using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the bucket in behind the front sand layer and attach using mounting tape.
  • Attach the beach bag to the front sand layer using mounting tape.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the hat and flip flops to the sand layer.

It was so fun to create this diorama shadow box frame beaach scene with the colorful beach accessoires and sparkling ocean waves.

I hope you find the Shadow Box Frame tutorial helpful. It shows just how easy it is cut, score and fold the frame. 

Making this shadow box frame beach scene was so much fun and I love the depth of the scene.  The bird flying in the background really appears to be off in the distance.  Check out this Nautical Card to see another fun shadow box card.  I am so excited about the new frames and can’t wait to share more projects with you.  Have you had a chance to check out the new Rubbernecker die release?  You won’t want to miss it.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
