Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ May Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this hop, I decided to do a beach themed wedding card-in-a-box. I’ve done card-in-a-box cards often. You can find the video tutorial on this prior post. This card in a box starts with a Seaside Spray (a 2019-2021 in-color) card base, followed by sparkle Glimmer Paper and then Whisper White CS. I stamped onto the Whisper White CS.
I cut waves out of some scrap Seaside Spray CS and used some 2-way glue and dazzling diamond glitter on the tips of the waves and attached them to the cross members first. Next I stamped the palm trees from the Beach Happy stamp set in Garden Green and Soft Suede inks. I used my Brother Scan-n-Cut to cut them out. I attached them to the waves using strips of acetate for stability.
The bride and groom hearts are cut out of Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS and Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the hearts from the Be Mine Dies. Using paper snips I cut the two sides off of the Whisper White heart and glued it onto the Basic Black heart to create the dress shirt. I used the Cookie Cuter Builder Punch to cut the bow tie from Basic Black CS and used a sponge dauber to put a little Whisper White ink to the edges of the bow tie to make it pop. I used my Take Your Pick tool to add pearl accents to the Sparkle Glimmer paper heart. These are attached to each other and to the front of the card box with mini glue dots.
Using the Big Shot and the Bouquet Bunch dies I cut the bouquets out of Whisper White and Garden Green CS. They are attached to the cross members with mini glue dots. The sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and are stamped in Pacific Point ink. I used the palm tree from the Beach Happy set to put palm leaves on the edges of these layers.
For around the bottom of the card-in-a-box I used the High Tide stamp set to create a beach scene. I used Sahara Sand ink for the sand, Seaside Spray ink for the water (stamped the lines and used sponge dauber over them), a stamping sponge wedge was used to sponge Seaside Spray ink for the sky. The sun is stamped in Mango Melody ink, the birds in Smokey Slate ink and the grass in the sand in Old Olive ink.
This card used alot of different supplies but wasn’t actually that difficult to make and I’m super happy with how it came out. I appreciate you visiting my blog and hope you leave me a comment below, so I know you were here.
