When summer rolls around, handmade beach cards are the perfect DIY crafts to make and give. There are a variety of oceans, sands, sunsets, and sunrises to create. I’ve got 4 ideas for beach cards to inspire you.
Watch the video below or on Youtube for a more a more detailed explanation.
Minimal Supplies Card
I used this masking paper to create my own wave stencil. Then I used these inks to create a turquoise ocean scene reminiscent of Hawaii on really smooth cardstock. Then I stamped my sentiment using my stamp positioner.
Ink Blending and Stamps
I used painter’s tape to mask off my horizon and my sand line. Then I used these inks to begin build my scene. This stamp set in this black ink helped to frame the scene.

For this card, I wanted a dark ocean and sand, so I used the June My Monthly Kit from Hero Arts. It’s currently out of stock but you can get their add-ons in the meantime. (I hope they bring it back). I used this add-on stamp set for the sentiment.

Die Cutting Only
For this beach scene using only die cuts, I used this die set and some scrap cardstock. I placed all of my pieces together and adhered them with this adhesive. I then die cut this sentiment twice, once out of white cardstock, and once out of blue cardstock to create a shadow.
