OHC!). But I found a few super cute stamps in my stash, and I just had to get busy celebrating summer!
Today's card features Beach Babe Twila, a Roberto's Rascals stamp from C.C. Designs. I really like Roberto's line, both for its style and for clever designs. There are several stamps that are just perfectly funny, amusing and fitting my family.
I started by stamping Twila out in brown hybrid ink and coloring her in with Copics. I went for standard summer colors, adding some white polka-dots to her swimsuit. After she was colored in, I carefully cut her out with a pair of scissors, leaving a small white border.
I grabbed a kraft top-folding A2 card base (4¼x5½") and layered a couple of summer papers from my stash. I went with a neutral dark wood-grain and a rainbow stripe. I think those two work together really well and just remind me of a beach hut or summer cabin.
I stamped a sentiment onto a strip of white cardstock and adhered it to the card with foam squares. I added a teal doily underneath, and adhered Twila on top (also with foam squares). Since the card was already perfectly bright, I chose not to add any other embellishments.
Thanks for reading and happy summer!
