“Anniversary by the Beach”

This card was fun to make but a little on the tricky side (both chairs have to line up perfectly or the card won’t close). But I was determined to make his and her chairs with his and hers drinks. In the end, it came out like I planned and my sister and her hubby got a real kick out of their card.

I pulled this card out of my archives, as I did make a few years ago, my style has changed a little since then.

The Adirondack chairs used to make this card is a die set from Karen Burniston, her instruction video is below. To create the double chair you have to make sure that when you line up the chairs they are perfectly straight on the fold line as the card will not shut properly if they are off by even a little. The big palm trees are from her original Palm trees and pails set, and the small tree, the sand dunes, and waves are from her original Beach edges die set. The little sea shells are also a Karen die that came with her Rocky the Crab set.

All the cardstock and the vellum on the front are from Stampin’ UP. The little drinks are from a retired Stampin up set. The clouds are a Stampin’ Up cupcake punch. On the front of the card the die used to make the label and the “Happy” diecut are also all from Stampin’ Up. I used a retire embossing plate to emboss the Pool coloured border on the bottom.

At the time I did not own a stamp or a die that said Anniversary, so on this card I hand wrote it.

It’s hard to see in the photos but the drinks actually pop up as well, I did this by making a little rectangle box and glued it to the back of the drink, the arm of the chair, and the back of the chair. When the card is closed the box goes flat when the card is opened the box opens as well and the drinks pop up.



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.
