End of Summer Blog Hop!

End of Summer Blog Hop

September 1st and 2nd, 2013

Cuttin' and Stampin' is celebrating 

We have five new Design Team Members to introduce to you.  
We also have our Weekly Special starting this weekend.  From this point forward, you will be able to purchase the items the design team is using for the weekly challenge at a discounted rate.   

So you can start the hop at Cuttin' and Stampin' and work you way through our 13 wonderful Design Team members.  Each of us has used the Bazzill Basic Paper collection called Lucy's Crab Shack.

I hate to see Summer coming to an end, especially since here in my area, we had a cooler than normal summer, especially early in the season.  I guess I feel cheated!
I decided to create this cute little card as a birthday card for my sister in law. 
We got to enjoy a beach vacation together earlier this summer so as we say "goodbye" to summer,  I hoped this card would remind her of the fun times we had at the beach!


I used a file from the Silhouette store to cut the flip flops. I decided to use a brad and a little flower instead of the button shape that is included in the cut file.  

I inked the edges of the flip flops to make them "pop" a bit more.

I embossed the straps of the flip flops with the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder.
How cute is that orange polka dot paper?  It is from the Lucy's Crab Shack collection that is on special in the Cuttin' and Stampin' store!

To create the "sand" I just tore the kraft card stock and then inked the rough edges. I tucked the flip flops in the sand dunes!


I found that I had the perfect sentiment stamp that says "Sole Sisters" and added that to the front of the card.  It is by Pink By Design's "Shop-A-Holic" set. 
I'm very close to my sister in law, and she's dealt with an ankle surgery and I've dealt with foot surgery and both of us have had some complications following.  So I thought "Sole Sister's" was a perfect sentiment for us! 
For the interior of my card, I added another patterned paper from the Lucy's Crab Shack collection.  I then typed and printed my sentiment and added that to the card as well.

I hope you enjoyed my little project and have fun with the rest of the Hop!
