Going to the Beach

Good morning, DiesRUs Friends!
I'm Vickie Y and I'm very excited to share my first blog post with you as a DiesRUs Inspiration design team member.

Today, we are going to the Beach with Memory Box and Impression Obsession dies!

First, I'll share with you the process of putting my card together, then I'll put links to the DiesRUs online store of each die set I used.

The card base is 4 1/4 inches square.  I cut a piece of blue cardstock at 4 1/8 inches to layer onto the card base.

For the next layer I used the Memory Box Pinpoint Square Layers dies by cutting the 4x4 inch die in white, then cutting the 3.6x3.6 inch die cut in blue for the image panel.  I die cut each die I plan to use and lay them out on my craft mat as seen below.

I used alcohol markers to color the Memory Box Beachfront Seagulls die cuts.

Then I begin the process of adhering the die cuts to my card!  First, I adhere the fence, then the grass, then the birds in the sky, and finally the beachfront seagulls.  

Completed card:
I hope you enjoy "our day at the beach!"
