Lookin’ Good Buddy!

A little sand in the crack and Octopus on your head, the delights of beach life.  This clear stamp set Hippo Beach Fun says it all.  A little something for everyone, the lounger, the surfer and the water bug.

For this card I used some of my favorite dies too.  Be sure and check them out below.  So many uses for these cool dies.

Creating this Card

A lot of times we use the dies to create the die cut and pop that up, but what if we used the negative space on a card front just in the perfect spot to be used as part of the card design?  This is how I used the sun from Up in the Clouds die set.

Once the sun was cut out of the dry embossed layer,  I popped this layer up off the card base because it gave it more dimension.  You can see I used the circle frame from the Shaker Maker Combo to create a ring, and then put a layer of the Lattice A2 directly under it too resemble a net.  I get a lot of use out of the circle frame, sun and clouds as well as the waves if you haven’t noticed.

Because I wanted to add more dimension to the card I used the Kinetic Waves.  With the sun being on the left I put the other elements on the right for balance.
