Beach Huts

Hi Janja here with you. Welcome to the blog today.
In the beginning, I intended to prepare a greeting card on the topic of gardening.
However, since summer is almost here, I changed my mind and turned the garden shed into a beach hut.


- CottageCutz dies: Potting Shed, Puppy in Garden Cart (parasol), Fairytale Castle (flags), Camping Trailer (flags garland), Seagull (sand dunes)
- blank card: 5 7/8" x 5 7/8" (15 x 15 cm)
- white cardstock: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" (14 x 14 cm)
- patterned papers
- different colors of brush markers
- different colors of ink pads
- glue, double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive foam pads

Cut the beach huts out of striped papers. Also cut out three parasols.



Use white cardstock for the background. Shade it with different colors of ink pads. For a sandy beach, use a stamp or simply add dots with a marker.


Now attach all the elements to the prepared background with glue and self-adhesive foam pads as shown. Attach the parasols to small sand dunes.



Thank you for stopping by.
Janja

What an excellent idea! This is such a great reminder to think outside of the box and see what else can be made from the dies in our stash. I have really been enjoying this release, and am already looking forward to the next one.
