A little sand in the crack and Octopus on your head, the delights of beach life. This clear stamp set Hippo Beach Fun says it all. A little something for everyone, the lounger, the surfer and the water bug.
For this card I used some of my favorite dies too. Be sure and check them out below. So many uses for these cool dies.
Creating this Card
A lot of times we use the dies to create the die cut and pop that up, but what if we used the negative space on a card front just in the perfect spot to be used as part of the card design? This is how I used the sun from Up in the Clouds die set.
Once the sun was cut out of the dry embossed layer, I popped this layer up off the card base because it gave it more dimension. You can see I used the circle frame from the Shaker Maker Combo to create a ring, and then put a layer of the Lattice A2 directly under it too resemble a net. I get a lot of use out of the circle frame, sun and clouds as well as the waves if you haven’t noticed.
Because I wanted to add more dimension to the card I used the Kinetic Waves. With the sun being on the left I put the other elements on the right for balance.
