Imagine Summer


It's Anja here. I made one last Summer card for this season, before I move to Autumn and Christmas cards.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Surfboard 1, Flipflops, Happy Fish 2, Circle Set, Clouds & Sun, Imagine Phrase),
- Distress Inks and Oxides,
- craft card base (10,5x15 cm),
- white and craft card stock for die cuts and background (9,5x14 cm),
- black pen,
- brush,
- scalpel,
- pencil,
- double sided wide tape,
- scissors,
- sand,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the flip flops- I cut two pairs of bottom for more dimension.This time I used Distress Oxides for coloring.

Next I cut the sun.

And then the fish. I used black pen for the eye.

I did the circles and the sentiment next. i used craft card stock for the sentiment. And I used blue ink for the edges of the circles.

Then I cut a surfboard and used it as a stencil to cut another from the white card stock. I used this one as the bottom of the surfboard. I then cut one more with the die.

I had three surfboards cut and I colored It with Distress Oxides. I only used smaller pieces of the red surfboard to insert it in the yellow one.

Next I did the sandy beach. I taped double sided paper on the card stock and then put sand (I brought it from my vacation and stored in a jar) on the other side. I cut a piece out for the card using scissors.

Then I used a scalpel and cut a piece to insert the surfboard.

Last I did the background. I used a brush to make some waves with water.

And when all that was done I glued all the pieces together and my card was done.

I wish you all a nice Sunday. See you again next week.
