OK, so I stepped away from my comfort zone and created a card using strange colors and hardly any stamps!
I know you all have been making your own embellishments for a while now, but I was too timid to try it...until now. I made these cute flip flops from some fabric, fun foam, and a few pieces of ribbon.
This card is for today's Tuesday Throwdown! The challenge is to create a project that celebrates summer. Let's be honest, I wear flip flops year 'round (inside anyway!), but they are generally thought of as summer footwear. *smile*
The sponsor this week is Paper Maniac, and boy do they have some good sales! This week everything Tim Holtz, Ranger Industries and Sizzix Alterations are on sale at 25% off! The prize this week is a $30 gift certificate and INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING! Wowzers!
So here's a silly tutorial showing you just how I made these funky flip flops. Mistakes are included for your viewing pleasure. *grin*
Here's the card again, so you don't have to scroll all the way back up! Whewww.
The sentiment was stamped with the flower stems from Barefoot Summer..cute huh? I used a tiny flower head for the dot in the "i" too. Background stamps are also from Barefoot Summer.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you play along with us for Tuesday Throwdown!
