A nice summery beach card for this blazing hot day!

The card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4" and made with white card stock.  I cut a piece of white card stock at 4 1/4"x6."  I then used the Tim Holtz Rays stencil to create my sunny background.  I used four Distress Inks on it: squeezed lemonade, wild honey, spiced marmalade, and picked raspberry.

The waves are from the "Word Builders: An Ocean of Words" Cricut cartridge.  The sand is from SVG Cutting Files, it is one of the files from the May Cut Club. 

The palm tree is from the "Crocs Rule" cartridge.  I just cut it off the beach to use alone.  I then used some stamps from Scrappy Moms Stamps to create my sentiment.

I made this for the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenges: tic tac toe (dies, image, birthday)
Seize the Birthday: sunshine
Cut It Up: sun & surf


  1. Very pretty! Love your sunset background you created with the distress inks.

  2. Fantastic job on the gradient sunset. Looks like a beautiful day starting on a private island.

    Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up for our Sun & Surf challenge!


  3. So beautiful! Wish I were there right now watching that sun! Thanks for sharing with us over at Cut It Up!

  4. Awesome colored sun rays - Thanks for joining in at STB.

  5. Paula, this is Evelyn from Cut it Up Challenge Blog. I made a mistake typing in the winner for challenge 98, Sun and Surf. I typed the correct number, Entry 5, but used the name from Entry 4.

    Your project was #5. You are actually the winner!
