Beach Step Card

Hi! It is Shirley posting today.  I saw an accordion fun fold card on Pinterest the other day, that looked interesting and not to difficult to make. There was a video/tutorial and it was easy to follow. That is a good thing, because if it gets too involved or things take a bad turn, I usually am done with making something new. I bet you know what I mean.  If you want to watch the tutorial, click on the link above.

Graphic 45~Beach Fun 

I used a turquoise card base and layered it with a yellow card stock. The designer paper that I used is the Graphic 45 By The Sea 8 X 8 paper pad.

The "By The Sea" title was cut from the By The Sea paper pad. This pad makes it easy to make cards. I love the pictures they provide so you can make a really quick card if you like. The beach sign  post was made with a die from my collection and the "To The Beach" was cut from the paper pad, also. 

I used the Impression Obsession Mini Nautical Die Set to cut the anchors, the lighthouse and the ring buoy. The sailboats were cut with the  Impression Obsession Sailboats die set. The waves were made with a border die from my collection. *There is a really cool Waves die by Joy Craft in the CCNS online store that is available. It is in the supply list below.*

The truck was created by using the Impression Obsession Classic Truck die. I made the mounds of sand using a border die. The grass was cut using the Impression Obsession Grass die.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Come back and see us again soon.

Terrific job - between this awesome paper from Graphic 45 and the dies you used on the accordion folds, this card takes me back to the good old days when we were younger and hanging out at the beach!! Fabulous card, Shirley!
