Summer Barefootin'

Happy Summer everyone! Take off those flip-flops and enjoy some fun in the sun and make your feet happy! The "Optional Twist" for this week's Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz was "feet" and I went with 3 pairs of them.

The first thing I did was cut out 3 pairs of feet in different colored card stock using dies from Marianne Creatables (LR0305). Next, I composed my sentiment on my computer and printed it out on ivory card stock. Under the sentiment I stamped a flock of flying birds in black ink with a Stampscapes stamp. This was then cut and embossed with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and sponged around the edges with Memento Cantaloupe ink. At this point I positioned the die cut feet on this panel and popped them on with dimensionals.

As a final step, I prepared my base card and then popped on my focal layer and my project was done, a very clean and simple summery card.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out this post. I hope you liked it and will come back again. And don't forget to join in the fun at The Outlawz challenge this week.
