Fun in the Sun

Wow, our high yesterday was 85, the first time we have been over 80 degrees since last September. So to celebrate the unofficial one day start of summer I created this card, Fun in the Sun. The card is 5 1/2" X 8 1/2". I ran the base through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with the swirls embossing folder. I thought it would make it look like wind and waves. I cut the sand from the Everyday Paper Dolls cricut cartridge. I used my Gypsy and the real dial size feature to resize the cut. I cut it once at 2" and again at 3" with a width of 5 1/2". I layered these cuts to make a wider "beach" for my card.

The rest of the cuts for this card are from the Life is a Beach cricut cartridge. The umbrella and its layer were cut at 4". The sun and flip flops base cut and the layer cut at 2". I used my Gypsy to weld the phrase, Fun in the Sun using the font available on the cartridge. This too was cut at 2". I also used my Gypsy to create a shadow for the phrase. To add some bling I outlined the yellow part of the suns outer rays with some yellow stickles. It doesn't show up very well in the photo. The sea shells are from some Jolee Boutique Beach Stickers.

Update: Okay, Okay, my daughter just pointed out that the words are not quite correct. I originally welded them to be a block but once I laid out my card I changed my mind. I never, ever, ever noticed that the words now said Fun the and In Sun. I apologize for the goof.
