Little Bits Tall Beach Card


White card
Distress oxide inks
Border dies
Waves stencil
Adhesive and foam tape/dots

How to:

Cut one piece of card measuring 8.25″ x 8.25″ (210mm x 210mm) and two pieces measuring 4″ x 8 1/8″ (100mm x 205mm)

Fold the 8.25″ x 8.25″ (210mm x 210mm) piece in half to make a tall card base. Crease well with a bone folder.

Taking one for the 4″ x 8 1/8″ (100mm x 205mm) pieces and some border dies, cut out panels to use as grass and sand. You need one for the grass and two to three pieces for the beach/sand.

Using distress oxides, blend mowed lawn and twisted citrus for the grass.

Antique linen and gathered twigs for the sand/beach.

Layer the inked pieces onto the other 4″ x 8 1/8″ (100mm x 205mm) piece to get an idea of how much inking to do for the sea. There is no need to ink the whole piece. Do not stick them down.

Apply Tumbled glass ink to the 4″ x 8 1/8″ (100mm x 205mm) piece, only as far down as necessary.

Position the stencil over it and apply Broken China. Remove the stencil and reapply Tumbled glass over it to blend in the ‘waves’ more.

Adhere all the pieces down. The easiest way to do this is to layer all the pieces without gluing them down. Using one hand to keep the layers in place, slide out each one starting at the top, apply wet glue, and slide it back into it’s place before removing the piece beneath it.

Adhere the card front onto the base

Stamp all the images onto white card and colour using your desired medium

Cut the image out using the coordinating CUT-IT-OUT dies or fussy cut them with a precision scissors.

Stamp the “Life’s a Beach” sentiment from the Summer Sentiment Set onto white card and cut in half

Adhere all the images and the sentiment to the front of the card, popping the images up on foam tape.
