Flip Flop Card

Yesterday was one of those days.  You know, the kind where it seems like everything that could go wrong does.  By the end of the day all I wanted to do was make something.  Crafting is my de-stressor and that is exactly what I did!

I used the beautiful flip flop SVG files from ScrappyDew's Vault.  If you are not a vault member of theirs, you are seriously missing out!  Once you purchase the membership, not only do you get access to a ton of designs they already have in there, they periodically add more designs and you get those for free.  PLUS there is a coupon code for vault members that lets your purchase their regular store designs for super cheap.  Can you tell I am a happy vault member?? LOL!  Here is a link that you can see some of the designs they have in their vault.  They have added more since!

Anyway, here is the card I created from the flip flops.  They cut like a charm on my Cricut!
I used water paper from a DCWV Photo Real stack for the top part of the background.  The flowers on the flip flops are some of the built in shapes in SCAL2.  Then I used the Round 14 Epiphany Crafts shape tool to add a little extra visual interest to the center of the flowers.
I created the sand using Core'dinations Vintage Collection cardstock.  I tore two layers, embossed it then sanded it to reveal the core kraft color.  The sentiment I printed off from my computer, layered it with a scalloped punch and popped it up on foam adhesive.

Some beach...Somewhere...  Actually just being able to play with my paper helped me a lot more than getting sunburned on some hot, sandy beach would have LOL!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

When I saw this picture I immediately thought of my flip flop card!  The bright colors, the paisley print and the subtle florals incorporated within the print...
