Hello Sunshine Card

Here is one of the Cards that I decided to make from one of the journal cuts from the Echo Park  Paradise Beach line.


I cut these cute little Flip Flops with the Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge and used a little flower punch to create the added flower!  I also used a White Gel pen to create the stitched lines on the outside of the card.



Card – Hello Sunshine 
Items Used: Echo Park – Paradise (Green/Teal, Surf & Sun, Cabana stripe), Cricut, Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge (Flip flops), Small flower Punch, PTI Sentiment, Ink: Dark Chocolate, American Crafts Twine (Brown, Notch punch, Recollections resin flower, Fiskars notch punch, Glossy Accents and glitter. 

  1. Cut a piece of the green Green patterned paper to fit the front of an A2 Card. 
  2. Cut out the Flower Journal block from the Surf & Sun Patterned paper. 
  3. Using the Fiskars Edge-Notch punch to punch the top of the journal block
