Hello Honey Bee friends!! Today I’m sharing another way to create a different scene with my favorite Summer Cabins! It’s super hot here now, I wish I had a beach trip planned, and so I’ll just pretend with this fun beach scene card!

I began by die cutting teal and white cardstock with the two dies in the A2 Scene Builder Card Base set. Next I die cut two strips of white cardstock with two of the waves dies in the Makin’ Waves Borders Honey Cuts. I used blender brushes to add Mermaid Lagoon to one strip and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide ink to the other. I trimmed these strips to 5″ wide and one to about 1″ tall and the other 1-½” tall. I scored the ends at ¼”.

Before I adhered them to the teal frame, I splattered on diluted white paint and some Bee Shimmery liquid shimmer watercolor for some fun sparkle. I added 1/8″ double sided tape to the scored tabs to secure the layers to the scene. I created the layer of sand by stamping beige cardstock with the Sandy Shores Background stamp and Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide inks. I hand-trimmed the piece and used my trimmer to cut it to 4-½” and then glued it directly to the back of the frame.

Before I glued on the back of the Card Base I created the other elements for the scene. (I find it easier to glue them in place without the Card Base back adhered.) I chose this cute little cabin from the Summer Cabins Honey Cuts for my scene. I die cut the layers from yellow and teal cardstock and use Bee Creative glue to adhere the pieces. Using your reverse tweezers to place the pieces makes it super easy!

See the little “bushes” in front of the cabin? Well, actually I die cut them using the tiny cloud die in the Shoreline Scene Builder Honey Cuts! This set also is where the palm tree, sailboat and birds are from. I die cut the pieces from white cardstock and used a few Copic markers to color them.

Next I added color to the back of the Card Base by inking on Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade Oxide inks for the sun. I inked on Tumbled Glass Oxide for the sky.

I used glue to adhere the cabin, palm tree, and saiboat to the card layers as shown. Then I folded the back of the Card Base at the score lines and used glue to adhere it to the sides of the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Seas The Day stamp set in black ink and cut it out with the coordinating die. Then I glued it and the birds to the back.

I just love that I thought of another scene for the Summer Cabins! I sure hope you’ve found inspiration too, and thank you so much for stopping by today!
