To start, I used a stitched-rectangle die to cut down a panel of Distress White Heavy cardstock by Ranger. I then did some ink smooshing using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Once this was dry I used the medium-sized die in the Porthole Lift the Flap dies to cut out the center of the panel. I used the circle die in the set to die-cut two circles of silver paper which I glued to the inside and outside of the flap.
For the sand, I ink blended Rusty Hing and Dried Marigold Distress Ink onto cardstock and die cut it with both the stitched rectangle die and the Slimline Hillside Scene Dies. I added some splatter of Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.
I created an A2 card base from white card stock, ink blended some sand using the same colours as the outside and added some ink splatter and white dots for interest.
I stamped and coloured the images with Copics and then die-cut them with their coordinating dies. For interest, I added highlights with a white gel pen and some Lawn Fawn Prismaglitter using a Quickie-glue pen to some of the elements on the card.
This card took quite some time to complete but I really enjoyed the process. I just love working with Jo's adorable designs and bringing them to life on a card.
