For this card I used only dies to create a scene. I used the new Palm Trees die set from Lawn Fawn to create this beach scene. I also entered this card into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge .
I started by die cutting all the elements. Besides the Palm Trees set, I also used the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables, Stitched Hillside Borders, Sun and Moon dies and the Slide On Over dies.
I used Distress Inks to color all the elements. Here are the colors I used:
Sky: Thumbled Glass
Waves: Mermaid Lagoon
Beach: Brushed Corduroy
Sun: Mustard Seed + Wild Honey
Crab: Fired Brick
Palm trees: Vintage Photo + Crished Olive + Mowed Lawn
Coconuts: Walnut Stain
I wanted to create a slider card, where the sun appears behind the waves. I die cut a slider track with the Slide On Over dies and started assembling the card. I doubled up the foam tape, so the sun has plenty of room to slide. I stamped the sentiment, from mermaid For You, onto the sun in Doe Ink. I added the panel onto a Sunflower cardsbase.
This card was a lot of work, but it was worth it. I love the look of this scene. PLease make sure you check out the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge for more inspiration.
