Good morning all

thought I would share some sunshine with you all with the card I have and it for my daughter birth day next Thursday and when she was small she always wanted to be going to the beach even in the snow to play bless her sat Meany a time on a freezing day on a beach I live the beach image as the girl has a cocktail glass which in the picture is heard to see but I could of had one several times to keep me warm lol

open part of  small card on front of card

What I used to make this card

I used a  pre scored white card 1 layer of cream paper and a gold paper on top
then I used a strip of white card and put 2 strips of gold paper  I had punch out on top and added a small strip of cream paper and some small gems to make the boarder strip across the card
I used a spellbinders die that I thought looked like seaweed and cut them out of green paper the shape on top was from out of the middle of the small card front shape and I added a sentiment
To make the small gate fold card
 I used a marianne design lr0236 die and this die comes with layers I used the bottom layer for the shape of my card and cut the 2 fronts in half I folded the card in to three be for cutting and had the die coming of the edge so I could keep the card as a shaped card I used the bottom layer to cut the the inner of the card with the digi stamp on which I coloured with promarkers and trimmed the sides to fit
I used the second layer and cut it in half to make the front of my card I used white card for the small card and covered the 2 front half's in cream then the 2 half's of the 2 layer on top
I flipped the digi image of the girl on my computer be for printing it out 2 give me opposite possess
I coloured them in with promarkers and then cut them out and added some gems
