At The Beach

Challenges

Cute Card Thursday (73) - At The Beach

Colour Create (25) - Blue/Sand/Silver/Black

The Pink Elephant (28) - Summer

With this card I started by covering the base card with a picture of the sea that I found on the internet (makes a great background paper). I then placed the sandy footprint border along the bottom adding seashell stickers. Next I used a template to cut the swimsuits out of different paper offcuts and decorated them with gems, peel-offs and stickers before attaching with foam pads. Finally I added a recycled silver sentiment. Hope you like it.

Card Recipe

Template - Glitzy Babe No: 3 from Cranberry Cards Co

Sentiment - Recycled from old card

Papers/Border - Scrapbox

Gems/Peel-Offs/Stickers - Stash

Thanks for looking.
