It's All Good Beach Card

This is a summer beach scene card with stamping, stencil and die cut elements.  I love the beach chair and umbrella combination.  The inspiration for the design is the fabulous Florida pastime that I like to enjoy, especially the last week together before the kids go back to school.  The texture is nice and the clouds have a fluffy feel using crinkle paper.  It has some sheer accents in the layers.  The colors were inspired by the Unity Stamp Company August {be inspired} color challenge.  It is in their Friends With Flair projects.  This is included with Paper Issues Endless Summer link up.


Front sentiment:  It's All GOOD
Inside sentiment:  delight in the day

This one is perfect for I'm Sorry, Friendship or Birthday occasions.  The wonderful beach chair, umbrella and the fun sentiments inside and out are stamped and colored with distress markers. The sand and was cut from a stencil. The sun and fluffy clouds were die cuts. I had the perfect paper stash for the waves.  I used cobalt blue, sand, lime green and coral shades with the addition of lighter blues. I trimmed some sea grass to accent.

Tools used include:
From Unity Stamp Co.: It's All Good 100 days of summer Itty Bitty set, You & Me.
Also, My Creative Time stitched circle die & stitched cartoon clouds dies, stencil.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful summer. :)
