My Creative Time Guest Designer project!
Today starts a new Designer's Challenge over at My Creative Time~ this one being hosted by the super talented Amy!
a Summer Theme!!
This can be anything that you associate with summertime~ bbq, beach, vacations, a certain color palette, picnic~ really just ANYTHING Summery!
So here is the card I made....my inspiration for this comes from wishing I was Just Chillin! on the beach in South Carolina...unfortunately we wont be doing that this summer... no time to get away :( Such a bummer, but since I can't make it to the beach I can dream about it...LOL!
For my card I started out with a white card base and that fun beach wave paper from Echo Park~ A Perfect Summer. Before attaching my mat to the card base, I added some machine stitching around the border, because, well I really have a hard time not using my sewing machine....LOL! The sun, umbrella and beach chair and both star fish are all from the Day at the Beach cutting file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon also cut using the matching papers from the Echo Park paper pack. Before adding my embossing on the sand, I stamped my sentiment~ a perfect one for my beach scene from My Creative Time~ Things I Love.... new release stamp set.
I did end up using pop dots for the umbrella and sun to give my card some more dimension. I also added some glossy accents to the starfish (kinda hard to see in the picture).
So there is my challenge inspiration. I hope you have enjoyed my card. Make sure to stop on over at My Creative Time for more awesome DT inspiration!!
