Hello and happy Friday! I have a fun pop-up card to share with you today featuring the new Coastal Cuties Stamp Set from Sunny Studio Stamps. I combined this set with the Beach Babies Stamp Set, which coordinate perfectly with each other.
I decided to make a floating floor design for this set to create what I hoped would look like a fun 3D summer day at the beach. It’s been a while since I’ve made a card like this but they are a ton of fun (albeit a bit tedious) to create and I love this style of card so much! I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. I then used both the coordinating Coastal Cuties and Beach Babies Die Sets to cut them out.
I also added some fun little palm trees from the Sending Sunshine Stamps and Dies and a cute little crab from the Best Fishes Stamps and Dies. (For details on how to create a similar card, you can check out THIS prior post of mine.)
To add to my beach scene, I used the beautiful Summer Splash Paper Pad for the sky, the water, and the wave. In order to cut the wave, I used one of the Catch A Wave Dies. I also added some sand dunes cut from Kraft Card Stock in the back of the card using the Sunny Studio Wavy Border Dies and the Stitched Hillside Pop-up from Lawn Fawn. I then used liquid adhesive to add all of my images.
For the outside of my card, I went with a simple design and used a 2″ x 12″ belly band to hold my card together. I used one of the cute little girls from the Coastal Cuties Stamp Set and added a bird from the Sending Sunshine Stamp Set. I then added a beautiful scalloped frame using the Fancy Frames Circle Dies and heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto some black card stock.
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, don’t forget to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!
