PTI MAKE IT MONDAY #175: Creative Card Borders Using Non-Border Dies

Monday, August 4, 2014

Hi! Today I got inspired by PTI's Make it Monday #175: Creative Card Borders Using Non-Border Dies.

Summer is going to be over soon so I thought I would pull out my PTI Flipping Out stamp set and dies. First, I die cut the flip flops out of the side of a piece of white card stock. Then I cut the white card stock down to fit the size of my card. Next, I stamped the flips flops, flowers for the flips flops, and the happy summer sentiment. I chose lighter blue and yellow card stock to place on the left side of the card front and I also used those colors to die cut the flip flop straps. 

For the inside of my card I stamped the relax and enjoy your day sentiment and adhered pieces of the lighter blue and yellow card stock to the right of the sentiment. 

My Supplies:
                                                             Stamps: PTI Flipping Out
                                                             Dies: PTI Flipping Out
                                                             Paper: Michael's Recollection 110 lb white card stock
