Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme. This month the theme is Summer Fun! I had an idea pop into my head almost immediately!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Lemon Lolly cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded!
- The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Azure Afternoon was stamped with the wave Waves of Inspiration stamp set using Azure Afternoon Ink and added to the front.
- The monkey was punched from Pecan Pie cardstock and his face from Crumb Cake cardstock using the Little Monkey Punch. The ears were colored with Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blends.
- The leaf from Little Monkey was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock and colored with Berry Bliss and Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends. It was hand-cut and added to the wave with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The monkey was added on top of the “surfboard” with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greeting was stamped on Basic White cardstock with Berry Bliss Ink. The label and clouds were cut with the Waves Dies and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some blue Sheer Ribbon Combo was tied in a bow on the label and the other side cut off.
- A trio of white Sparkle Gems were added to the waves.
Isn’t that CUTE? Going to the beach is ALWAYS my idea of summer fun! Make sure to check out Mary’s Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary!
