Sweet Summertime

Beach Babes: AI Challenge - Sweet Summertime

These awesome ladies are enjoying my favorite way to spend a lazy summer day....beach and a cocktail!

This is a simple one layerish card.  I Copic colored the image and loosely fussy cut it out.  (The first thing I do when I get a new stamp set is color all the images and keep it in a clear storage case for future use.)  The ladies are embellished with clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.  I searched the Cricut library in Design Space and found this island with palm trees and beach umbrella.  I cut the top of the umbrella from some fun pattern paper and stamped it with beach babes from the stamp set. The background is water paper from one of my paper pads.  Everything is adhered down flat, but I did bring some the palm frowns and the corner of the umbrella over the top of the ladies.  This gives the card dimension without adding the bulk of foam tape.  lastly I adhered it to the 7" x 5" card base and rounded all four corners.

This card will surely bring a smile to anyone's face!
