Dies R Us Summer Vacation

The new challenge at Dies R Us is all about summer vacations. So many of my friends and relatives love the beach so I have quite a few images and dies that focus on this theme. I decided to try a double display fancy fold cut for this card. When folded it makes a gate fold card. 

 I started by making the card base and then layering it with black and then some wood  grained panels. I used my score board and smoked hickory distress ink to get this weathered wood look. I then began to fill my panels with beach related objects. I stamped the beach scene from Our Daily Bread in black and white and also in colors. I used the black and white on the outside of the card and the colored for the inside.  Then I cut several IO dies and Cheery Lynn Fun in the Sun dies to add to the card. A list of dies I used are at the bottom of the card. This is a time consuming project, but I have a friend in mind who will love it and appreciate the time it took to make.
