Hello Summer


I am back with another card using this new Spellbinders Small Die of the Month called- Day at the Beach and this time I am playing along with the gals over at Fusion. I still had all the scraps from yesterday’s card on my desk so I stuck with the same color scheme. I have been eyeing the Fusion Challenge for the past week and knew that if I got my Spellbinders set in the mail in time it would work out perfectly for this challenge.

I chose to play with just the photo and not the sketch for this card. I used two elements from the photo in my design, the first one is obviously the hat with the hello on it, but the second one is the long rectangles both on the door and at the top of the doorway in various widths.

Supplies Used: Some with Affiliate Links

Small Die of the Month

Platinum 6

Pink and Main-Sunshine Die

Oxide Inks: Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers

Card Details: Cut strips of paper in various widths to complete my background. I used Oxide inks to sponged my sentiment and flip flops. The tiny stars on top of the flip-flops were made with an old Verve border die. The sunshine die is sponged and double mounted for some depth. I used a few gold sequins to finish it off.

I certainly am appreciative of your visits and I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’
