Surf's Up ~ SOUS Die Cut Challenge June 1

Wow!  Happy June 1, everyone, and TGIF!  This year is just flying by!  I can't believe it's almost half-way gone!  Well, it's time for another Stuck on U Sketches Die Cut Challenge, and this challenge's theme is "I Love Summer".  Well, when I think of summer, I think of the beach, so I decided to make a card with a beachy-type theme.  Here it is:

This card was really simple to make with my Silhouette Studio and my Cameo.  I got the entire front of the card (sentiment, surf boards, and all) from this Echo Park Surf's Up Dude file from the Silhouette Online Store (SOS).  I filled the background of the file with this Skyline Park Printable Pattern by American Crafts  from the SOS and used the print and cut feature in Silhouette Studio to cut it out.  Then, I created an offset layer (shadow layer) of this background shape ,  mirrored it, and welded the two together to form the card base. Then, I just added some ink and stippled a little brown ink on the background kraft layer (to make it look more like sand), and my card was all finished.  I hope you like it!

Now, it's your turn!  Head on over to Stuck on U Sketches to see what the other Design Team members created.  Then, create your own "I Love Summer" themed project (using a die cut), and link it up at SOUS. I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  My oldest daughter's birthday party is this weekend, so I'll be sharing some decorations I made for her with you soon!  Have a wonderful weekend!
