Hello Honey Bee friends! Today I’m sharing my card and I’ve moved the Market Cart Builder from the flower market to the beach! The temperature here in Texas has been 100º+ the last few days, and I’m ready for the beach!! Want to join me?

For my card’s background, I die cut some of the beautiful patterned paper from the Beach Vibes 6×6 paper pad with the largest Deckle Edge A2 Honey Cut. Then I used a strip of the sand paper I had left over, placed it at the bottom of the same Deckle Edge die and cut it with my die cutting machine. Then I used one of the hill dies in the Horizon Slimline Borders Honey Cuts to cut a wavy edge at the top. I used some Bee Creative glue to adhere it to the other patterned paper and then to an A2 top-folding card base.

Next I used some more of that gorgeous Beach Vibes paper to die cut the Market Cart. I just placed the die at the edge of the paper so that the awning part of the die did not cut. I die cut the plant shelf that’s in this set from the same wood grain paper that I used for the cart. Then I used a Background Blender brush to add a bit of Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink around the edges of both.

Then I die cut the wheel and tire from some Distress Woodgrain card stock and added Peacock Feathers and Weathered Wood Distress Oxide inks to them with a blending brush. I adhered them together with glue.

I die cut the bottom awning from the Market Cart set from white card stock. Next I chose some images from the awesome Hello Summer stamp set and inked them up with Bee Creative Intense Black ink (the umbrella, grass, and shells). Then I colored them all with my Copic markers. I die cut the Hello Summer images with the coordinating Honey Cuts.

To finish up the cart, I adhered all the pieces together with Bee Creative glue, added foam tape to the back and adhered it to the card. I also popped up the grass pieces with foam tape for more dimension.

Then I used the same BG Copic markers that I used on the umbrella and colored a scrap of white card stock in an ombré pattern. I used the hello from Bitty Buzzwords Honey Cuts and die cut the top layer of the sentiment. For some extra dimension I die cut the top layer twice more and the shadow layer once from white card stock. I adhered all of the layers together with Bee Creative glue. I stamped the rest of the sentiment in some coordinating teal ink, die cut it with a Sentiment Banners Honey Cut and added foam tape to the back of both sentiments.

Of course, I had to add a bit of sparkle!! Haha! I used a clear glitter pen to add that pretty sparkle and shine to the “hello” and also all of the seashells. I sure wish photos would capture how pretty it is!

Have you tried making a card with the Market Cart Builder? This won’t be my last time for sure! I can see it filled with pumpkins in the fall too–what ideas do you have? Thank you so much for stopping by! Stay crafty!!
