Good Vibes

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have a brand new release of Beach & Tropical dies in the online store. We have 14 new designs in this release and they are currently on sale for a limited time at 25% off

They are so perfect for creating beach themed birthday cards, thank you, thinking of you etc. Let your imagination soar! The Design Team has been showing some great samples to spark your creativity. If you haven't seen them, look back on the Blog for lots of eye candy.

For my card today, I am using the Surf Mobileand I created a birthday card for my daughter-in-law. She is a California girl and she surfs so this will be perfect for her. Let's get started on some details of how I created this card.

Design Steps: 

I started off this week with my card colors. The color challenge #806 this week on Splitcoaststampers was hosted by our own Jeanne. She chose the colors of poppy parade, so saffron and pool party for the color trio. 
so saffron, poppy parade, pool party

Using cardstock in the challenge colors, I cut the surf mobile. For the pool party I shaded with the same color of ink to get a deeper blue tone. 

Next, I chose my background designer paper.  I was going after a hippie vibe with this paper and I think I found it. 
Poppy Parade Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper Layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

White Image Panel: 3" x 4" (largest Rectangle die)
Poppy Parade Layering Panel: 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" (largest Stitched Rectangle die)
The Peace phrase is from an older Christmas die - love, peace, joy and my good vibes sentiment is computer generated. I cut it out and snipped the ends for a flag sentiment and attached the peace symbol as an embellishment. 

Now that all the elements are cut, I am ready to start my card assembly. I attached the panels with double sided tape and the surf mobile I used dimensional adhesive to lift it slightly off the background. The Peace phrase is attached with ranger multi matte adhesive. 

Well, that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you a fresh idea for the Surf Mobile die. See you next Saturday.
