Posted in Adirondack Chair, Character Card, Tag Book Pop Up

Back to the Beach

So apparently I enjoy making beach cards, this is a card that I made my brother a while back, we spent many hours on beaches when we were growing up. If you are wondering why I have a bear instead of a frog or a crab or something else that one would possibly see on a beach, that’s because on our beaches we were more likely to come across a bear.


 ……… So it might be hard to believe but this card mechanism was made with the Adirondack chair die (the same chair from the “Hello Again” post from August 9th.) To recreate this yourself here is Karen Burniston’s YouTube video in which she calls it a Cascading Tag Card , since then she has created a new die called the Tag book Pop up which will make making this card a little bit easier.

“Honey the Bear” is one of Karen’s character dies, the pail, shovel (Palm tree &Pail die set) and beach sand (Beachy edges set) are all also from Karen Burnistons collection.

All the cardstock, stamps, diamond-like gems and ribbon are from Stampin’UP. As well as the large tag to make the pages. The tag was not big enough so I ran it through my ScanNcut to make it bigger (at the time I did not have the recommended tag from the video). The Greeting from the front was originally a Stampin’ Up stamp that I scanned, resized smaller and cut with my ScanNcut machine. A Wink Of Stella (fine glitter pen) was also used to cover all the sand and to make it look like there is sand on the shovel, it was also purchased from Stampin’Up.

The clouds, sun, and the sand castle were all cut using my ScanNCut machine.

The sequins were just from my stache, I believe I found them at my local Fields store.



Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
