This is a very simple card and all the diecut shells as well as the light house were made last summer. Glad I saved them! They were made from a variety of papers from one of those 1 lb. paper scrap packs. I love them because you never know what you will get. The background is from ColorBok. Now, the sun is a paint chip! Again, hope my Home Depot people aren't reading this... They'd never let me back inside, would they? I used a punch for the circle, and for the rays I used a Martha Stewart corner punch, these are the throwaway pieces, 3 for each punch. They'd make great watermelon seeds also. I really do like the bright color and the different texture that the paint chips have.
Don't know whether you can see it or not, but I embossed Beach Bum just below the sun with my Sizzix Texture Botique and a Cuttlebug folder. Love them!
I am going to enter this card in summer challenges at Die Cutting Divas, The Crazy Challenge, Make It Monday, and Paper Playtime.
Wouldn't the beach be nice right now?
Have a great day.
