Today I want to share a beachy box card with you. I used the super cute Chickie Agenda and Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp sets by Mama Elephant.
First, I die cut the box elements from white cardstock. I cut a window into the front of the box and a window into the front flap. I initially intended to use acetate in it, but in the end you could not really see the underwater part, so I just trimmed it off. I die cut the stitched panels from bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended them using Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I stamped my sentiment on the panel for the background from the Wishful Taggins stamp set with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and clear heat embossed it. I also cut some sandy hills from kraft cardstock and added a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink for more dimension.
I cut a panel out of bristol and I used the Stitched Wave Border to add some waves to the top. I ink blended it with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress ink. I added the background panel for my underwater scene to the box, and then added the sandy hills behind it. I also added the sandy hills to the backgrounds I ink blended before. I closed up the box and started adhered the backgrounds to the back and side flaps.
Then I stamped and watercolored my images using Kuretake Zig Markers. Then all that was left to do was all of the images to my scene. I really hope you like this one!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
