With school starting and summer coming to an end, I thought I would do one last summer card before I immerse myself in fall projects.
I started with a sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches:
And here is my card:
The pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye, Everyday Flair 6 x 6 paper pad. I used both sides of one sheet to cut down on scraps. I distressed the edges of all the pieces. The middle blue piece I ran through the Cuddlebug with the Spots and Dots folder and I wrapped some orange/white bakers twine around it.
The sentiment is from the CTMH set called Happy Thoughts. The beach scene is from Formal Occasion cricut cartridge. I didn't even know these little scenes were on this cart. I love finding new stuff on old cartridges!! I sized it at 2.75" and used all the layers. The water border was added from Best of 2010 cartridge. I sized it at 1" and then in CCR stretched it until I liked how it looked. I popped the scene up with foam tape for dimension.
I left the inside blank because I'm not sure what this card will be used for yet and added the one little scrap piece left over from the 6x6 paper I used on the front.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!!!
