Instructions: To view a larger image of this project, click here. Cut a card base from white card stock 8" x 8". Cut another piece 8" x 8 1/2". Score at 1/2" mark and fold. Apply adhesive and adhere the first piece to make 8" x 8" card base. This is a top fold card. Cut a pattern paper from Young At Heart collection a litte smaller than the card base and adhere to the card front. Tear a wavy scrap piece from paper pad and adhere at the base to appear as sand.

Fold and score the shadow box A2 size and adhere to the right side of the card base. Cover the outside with border strips, and the inside with a A2 panel from the patterned paper.

Die cut the Window Box elements lattice die, and the border die twice on white cardstock and adhere to the window. I layered the borders along the bottom of the window.

Stamp the coconut tree, and the truck image in black ink on white cardstock and die cut with coordinating dies. Colour the coconut tree with Archival inks, Library Green and Leaf Green and the car with Zig markers.

Stamp the daisy flower with Tea Rose and Forget Me Not ink on white cardstock and shade them with daubers using the same colour inks. Die cut with coordinating die and shape the flowers on the flower making tool kit. I also added yellow stamens to the centers of the flowers.

Stamp the leaves from the Sunflower Accents stamp collection in Library Green ink on white cardstock and die cut. Colour using Leaf Green ink and shape with the flower shaping kit. Gather all the flowers and leaves.

First adhere the coconut trees on the extreme left corner with dries clear glue, then adhere the car with 3D foam tape. Arrange the flowers and leaves on the car and the window.

Stamp a sentiment on a piece of white card stock with black ink. Ink the edges with Leaf Green ink and Forget Me Not ink before adding the sentiment on the card with foam tape. I also fussy cut a Happy Birthday sentiment from the paper pad and adhered it on the top left.
