IO BEACH FUN-ALL IN A BOX!


Happy Friday!
 I have been having so much fun playing with the NEW IO Dies that I just had to share! These dies are all available now online! There is a lot of exciting new things from IO coming up...so get ready! In the meantime, how about a trip to the beach in a box!


 There is so much going on inside this small pop-up box card! The Plane that's flying through the Cloud Trio actually comes with a banner that is trailing behind it. I thought about adding, "Eat at Joe's Crab Shack" but I wanted the card when fold to fit into an A2 envelope! 


This is the view of the front when the box is closing flat.
For the beach scene the Palm Trees were placed in the back along with some waves created with the Ocean Border Die


You can see the different layers here with the side view. The sand castles have a light cover of sand on them. I have used a waxed rope for the handle on the pail. These dies and the shovel all come in the Mini Beach Fun Set. I also tucked a few Mini Shells in the pail.


The Beach Chair that I used inside the box comes as a set of two. Soon I will be sharing a really fun card I made with those! The Single Beach Chair on the flap comes as shown with the pair of flip flops...loving these!


Here's the back of the box with its flaps down. This shows that darling Mini Shell Set. I used four out of the 7 shells that come in the full set. This sentiment seem to fit perfectly..."Sending Sunny Summer Smiles"!


Folding flat, ready to mail, and I'm dreaming of a beach trip!
All these new dies plus more can be seen and ordered  here!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
