Here is the project I completed.
I used white and kraft cardstock for the card base and card top.. In addition, I included a piece of patterned paper, it is from the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Collection. I cut and scored the white cardstock to result in an invitation sized card, 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". I took my EK Success corner rounder and rounded the edges on the right side.
Next, I applied the patterned paper with the same corners rounded. I began stamping the flip flops stamp onto the kraft cardstock, using Versamark Embossing Ink . In addition to stamping on the kraft paper, I also stamped the flip flops stamp onto a white cardstock scrap. I embossed the flip flops on the kraft paper using Snow Detail Embossing Powder from Recollections. Then, I embossed the flip flops on the white paper using Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.
I then placed Zig Wink of Stella in Clear atop the white embossed flipflops. I hand cut the flip flops on the white paper, colored them with Zig Clean Color Markers (002, 031, 036, FL Orange, Cobalt Blue, Light Blue), and once dry I added the same Wink of Stella to the colored flip flops. I added the colored flip flops to the card using dimensional adhesive.
On a scrap piece of kraft paper, I stamped the sentiment using the Versamark, then embossed it using the same Snow powder. I punched a hole in the upper left corner, added a tied bow (twine by American Crafts) and a gem (Lt Blue by Mark Richards, Glitter Dome). I placed this small kraft panel onto the card using dimensional adhesive. I placed this large completed card front onto the card using adhesive, tying two rounds of string around the front as I went. As a final touch, I dug deep into my old stash of chipboard and found this cute blue arrow. After inking the edges with the darker blue Zig marker, I added it to the card. Then, I came back to the card and added some subtle chalk in coordinating colors. (Pebbles, Inc.)
