A Summer Card Creation to Keep You Cool

We are always looking for fun summer card inspiration and this “Beach Cats” stamp set is bringing all the cool-cat vibes!

Today’s summer card creation is from our awesome Associate Designer, Julie. Julie says, “This cool cat has the perfect spot! Float around for a while, then lay out on a beach towel. Perfect way to spend a summer day and who wouldn’t trade places with him? He’d got it made in the shade, unless he’s walking on sunshine.”

We agree. This summer card creation will keep you cool! Everything is fine when there is sunshine; follow along as Julie creates today’s sunny project.

How to make this card:

  • After coloring the cool kitties, I die cut them & a plain white panel for the center of the filmstrip.
  • The filmstrip itself was cut out of black. There are 4 opening in the die cut as is, but I cut it apart & spliced it back together with only 3.  tip: This is easier to do on dark card stock because it doesn’t show on the black. 
  • The kitties were added behind the filmstrip & trimmed so they didn’t go out into the edges.
  • Then I backed the center section w/ another piece of white.
  • The paper behind the white panel was also spliced since it’s shorter than the mini slimline layer. Again, it was easy to do down at the very dark blue end.
  • When I tilted the filmstrip it looked a little bare in the upper left corner so I added a die cut sun before attaching the filmstrip. Sorta reinforces the “sunshine” theme as well.
