Hello My Crafty Friends!
Today I am happy to be sharing a post that I am also making for the Our Kreative Karma blog. For the month of April, our theme at Our Kreative Karma is Sunshine, Smiles, Summer or things that make us smile.
My project today covers a little bit of all of that!
Now, for the very first time EVER, I am sharing with you a card that is <GASP> NOT COMPLETELY FINISHED! Oh my, Oh my! Why would I ever do that, you ask? My card is for a very special birthday of a very special person and just in case she happens to check this blog post I did not want to have the final sentiment and details on the card!
Now, that taken care of, let me show a photo of the almost completed project!
When this project is completed, I will have the sentiment on the left hand side of the card that is now blank!
Can you see why this card screams SUMMER, SUNSHINE AND SMILES to me?
I sure hope the recipient likes it, but it is everything that makes me smile and think of summer!
This card is called a Side Step Card. I like that it gave me more surfaces to create on so when you view the card you see the various levels which almost created a "scene" type view to me.
You can see that the top "step" has a sunshine - which I cut several of and curved the edges.
The second step is a palm tree and some sand! I love the beach and I don't get the chance to visit any beaches very often!
and then the front step is a margarita! I cut the top layer of this in velum so it looks like the glass
is slightly frosty from the frozen yummy beverage inside!
I also covered the backs of each of these cuts so it looked more finished.
I used bright, cheerful colors which just say "Summer, Fun, Happy,Smiles" to me!
I sure hope that the recipient likes this card! She is having a "Big" birthday and we will be celebrating at the Beach!
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting! I love to read your comments!
