Summer Flip Flops

I'm posting today for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  I love the days I post on the Dies R Us Blog.  I usually color all my projects, so it's a great break to create with dies.  

Summer is fast losing it's heat here in the Northland where I live, so I am clinging to every day that remains!  That is what made me create this summertime card -- summer flip flops!

The Dies R Us Store has many cute flip flops that would work on this card.  Just put in flip flops in the search engine and see what comes up.  I liked these from Cheapo Dies.  I think they would be great for a patriotic themed project, so I know I'll be using them again. 

Here's a picture of the supplies I used on this card:

I had the idea in my head, but it took a lot of playing to get the shades of paper that were either bright enough of dark enough to show up the way I wanted them.  I backed everything with Stick It Adhesive Sheets. If you haven't tried Stick It, I highly recommend it.  It works great on small things, like words, and intricate things, like the Flip Flops. Just peel off the sticky layer, place it on the back of your paper, die cut your project, then peel off a second time to reveal the glue.  It's very easy to use and you can cut it to the exact size you need!

The sentiment was created with the Impression Obsession die, Hello Summer.  This has been my go-to die for summertime projects.  The words are a great size!  I love this die! 

I used 2 dies from the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles to mat and back the Flip Flops

Here are photos and links of the products used in the Dies R Us Store:

The flip flop paper and textured paper on this card are both digital.  They were made by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, and are part of her Taste of Summer kit.
