I know that not everyone has easy access to the beach, but I am just an hour away from the Oregon or Washington Coast line. So when I think of summer, it usually involves at least one trip to the beach!
Here is my take on a summer themed birthday card. I have many birthdays coming up this summer so you'll some more coming soon!
Yep, another shaped card. I always get the best reactions from kids when they open a fun shaped card! This sandcastle is from Create a Critter. I welded two shadow layers together to form this portrait A2 card. All layers are cut at roughly 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
The sentiment is a mix of two My Pink Stamper Stamps from her Punny-licious stamps. I combined the "Have a" from one stamp and the "Crab-u-lous" from another stamp. The "B-day!" is a Studio G Stamp. I punched the sentiment out with an EK Success Photo Label punch and matted it in some scraps from the rest of the card. I love these little rhinestones too, I added a few around the card.
Here is my cutie crab. He is also from Create a Critter, I added a Peachy Keen stamp face (and added gel pen doodles). He was cut at 2" and attached with pop dots. His hat was cut at 3/4" from the Celebrations cart.
All the paper is from DCWV mixed stack 7. I added lots of white gel pen accents. In this picture you can see how I welded the card base at the top. I think the card would be stronger if I'd have welded it at the side of the castle (live and learn, huh).
