this is a crazy time of year for me, I am in the middle of trying to make 50 Christmas for family and friends, I’m hosting Novembers Crazy4Challenges and I work retail, so today’s card is a card form box of previous made card. I made it pre blog so I don’t have any photos of making it, but I will do my best to explain the details as best as I can.
Like I have said in the past, I find making sympathy cards difficult, sometimes I will make them and put them away for when they are needed. This is a pretty one I had put away that I recently and to give away.
This card would make a great retirement card or the sentiment can be changed to a birthday card for someone who loves the beach. You can almost see the waves crashing against the shore when you tilt the card and the little bit of dimension of the seashell.
OK so this card is quite the flashback. This card was created back before I had a BigShot, seems like forever ago and had to be created using punches. Anyway, my kids had been invited to a Luau themed birthday and wanted a Luau themed birthday card, hmmmmm what to do. I can’t take full credit for this card as it is a conglomeration of multiple cards that I found on Stampin Connection from other Stampin’ Up demos (I will give credit below) It was a fun card to assemble and it went over quite well. I still have to laugh because at the time when I found the sample of the Hula dancer I was going to use she didn’t have a bikini sting in the back and my daughter was quite put out that there was the implication that she may be topless. My hula dancer has a bikini top string 🙂
