Another Life is a Beach card

Just a quick post today - I am still in the middle of a bunch of medical appointments and just don't have enough hours in the day! While we are waiting on that Design Studio update to add the new cartridges, I made another quick and easy card - this time I used the flamingo cut. I adapted a frame from the Storybook cartridge to make a more finished card. I can't wait until I can use the elements on Life is a Beach to make frames and other designs.

The eye cut is tiny and didn't show very well so I added a tiny diamond to make it sparkle!

The square card was cut at five inches and I cut a piece of yellow cardstock at 4 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches to line the card. I attached it to the back of the card first and then applied adhesive to the back of the flamingo and around the frame and then folded the front of the card over the liner to be sure that the card would close easily. I will probably add a few cuts to decorate the inside - and a stamp or a Cricut cut for a sentiment.

This is a very simple file - just the frame to cut. The first page of the file shows the sizing template in George - you do not cut this page.

For those of you who have been asking - we have scheduled some more Design Studio "Getting Started" classes. You can check the teaching blog (Let me Show you How to Do that) for times and details. We will also have a card class next week - the exact date and time will be posted in the next few days.

Maybe tomorrow the package I am waiting for will arrive... I can't wait to tell you what is inside!
