ODBD ~ Wishing You Were Here ~
A beach would be fabulous right now. I can almost feel the sand between my toes! Or maybe that is the dry, cracked winter skin I have right now.... :-(
So in the meantime, I can take solace in creating cards with a summer feel. Here's one using a few of Our Daily Bread Designs' January release items...
I started with a white card stock base and a sunny yellow mat. I used ODBD's Sunburst Background Die to cut, emboss and color my background. Two complimentary shades of yellow, lightly sponged on the die before removing, created the lovely sun and rays. I used ODBD's Leafy Edged Borders Die and a turquoise card stock to create overlapping waves. I used a couple of sand colored CS scraps, tearing each, and overlapped them for my beach. I stamped the sentiment from ODBD's Wishing Well directly on the sand and then die cut a couple of flip flops using the Flip Flops Die. I added a bit of baker's twine to create the thong straps.
So here are the items you see used on today's card...
Ink - Memento Dandelion, Canteloupe, Tuxedo Black
Card Stock - SU - Sahara Sand, Tempting Turquoise; Georgia Pacific - White
