Dirty Dozen Gallery Item

Happy Friday! I didn't end up staying up late last night to make anything new *sob sob*, but I am determined to do it tonight! I miss my crafty time!

Here's a card I made for the Dirty Dozen July gallery, where the theme was Poolside Paradise... Anyone who knows me knows I am a flip-flop freak, so this was something I knew I wanted to make when we picked the theme. I wear flip-flops year round, even when it's snowing (see, I'm a freak!)... LOL, well, as long as it's not up to my ankles or anything! :)

I traced a vague flip-flop shape onto a piece of white copy paper, then cut it out and used it as a template for my kraft base. I cut out three kraft shapes, then stamped one with the images from Guide Lines. Next, I stamped the smaller flower image from Friends 'Til the End in Memento Black ink and colored it in with Copics. Once that was done, I cut out the bloom, then added a huge aqua brad to the flower center. To finish up, I added the straps for the flip-flops and then sandwiched them between the card front and the extra kraft base I cut out, then attached the card backing. Easy peasy, but super fun results. :)

Have a great weekend!!
