June - Friend Birthdays

There are a couple of friends that have birthdays this month, which gives me a great chance to try some new cards! For a "new" card friend...

Since we are connected by the beach ... this was a perfect card to make. Making  another it covered two birthdays. The originial was made during OCC in February using one stamp set (PTI Flipping Out) three ways. Changing it up a bit, I used some patterned paper that looks like water. It is very thin so it fit well on the white card base. 

Partially die cutting the flip-flops on another piece of white card stock,  I sponged  stripes with brown Distress ink using an edge of a scrap to look like beach sand. I tore the edge to resemble the foam of the water with just a touch of sponged blue at the edge. Then I die cut the red stamped flip-flops to layer on the partial die cut, adding the detail pieces at the end. 

That whole section was attached with a foam base to raise above the water. It looks so cool in real life! The sentiment is divided to make it more what I wanted it to sound like :) Versamark stamped and embossed. 

The beach would be a nice birthday present for anyone, right?
