Here is a fun sport themed card in honor of the Summer Olympics.
The card is 4"x8" and made of kraft card stock. The background mat is 3 3/4"x7 3/4" and made of white card stock. I then used a stamp from the Spring Splatters stamp set by Jaded Blossom to create the background. I used three different Distress Inks for the effect: tumbled glass, salty ocean, faded jeans. The sentiment is from Mermaid Kisses by Jaded Blossom.
The swimmer is from the "All Sports" Cricut cartridge. I then cut two more pieces of the water to create the layered effect. The front waves are from the "Life is a Beach" cartridge. I used two layers of foam tape for the swimmer and one layer of foam tape on the front waves for some added dimension. I outlined the front waves with star dust Stickles and the background waves with glossy accents. I also used some waterfall Stickles on the water droplets by her arms.
The mat on the inside of the card is 3 3/4"x7 3/4." I used a stamp from the Fired Up stamp set by Jaded Blossom for the sentiment.
I made this for the following challenges:

Color Throwdown: color combo
Fantabulous Cricut: summer activities
My Sheri Crafts: sports theme
