Life's a Beach


Hi everyone.  I had so much fun making this card today!!!!  I used my new Surf's Up! Shapeabilities again to make the flip-flops and beach ball ... and rolled up a piece of bright blue felt for the "towel".  I made my own beach bag using the Square Lattice embossing folder, shaping and gluing the embossed yellow cardstock into the shape of a bag and adding orange suede strips for the handles.  I added a small flag with the only stamping on this card "beach" ... which qualifies this card for entry into the latest CAS-ual Fridays challenge (CFC104 - banners and flags).

Hope you like this card ... it's a hint of what's to come for my next card candy! :)






Stamps:  Beach Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo (SU!)
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise (SU!)

So very adorable. I thought that was the SU EF, and how effectively you used it to make your mat and now this bag. Really great idea on this one. TFS
