Flip Flops Birthday Card

Hey guys! I have a fun card to share with you today.
 Here in the Great Northwest, we are wishing Spring would arrive... we've had one of the wettest and coldest spring weather on record. :(
The summer words background paper is from DCWVs summer stack.

Here is the Scrappy Mom's Stamp I used for the front of the card.  I love the little pink buttons too. Of course I used my white Gelly Roll gel pen to add all the doodling around the flip flops and the case base.

The flip flops are a free svg file I found awhile back. I thought they looked so cute cut in the pink flower paper.  I added some Glossy accents and Star Dust Stickles to the straps. It really gives them excellent dimension. I attached the flip flops to the card base with pop-dots.

Can you see how much they stand out?

The inside of the card got one more Scrappy Mom's Stamp and a white mat. I chose to cut the card base out of craft card stock.  It really reminded me of the sandy Oregon Beaches around here.

The card base and all the layers were cut from Tie the Knot.

Great! I pulled out some flip flops for a summer project that I want to make. :) What size is the card base? Does it have an envelope to match?
