Life is Good

Welcome to another fabulous day of Papertrey's countdown! Today I have a fun card to show you from Candice Aguilar's new set called Day at the Beach. It will be released on the 15th along with all the other new products this month at Papertrey.

This new set is jam packed full of summer time images and sentiments. It's sure to be a great set to add to your summer collection.
For my little 4.25" square card, I paper pieced two of the umbrellas in Raspberry Fizz and Summer Sunrise Inks. I adhered each umbrella topper with pop dots for some layered dimension. The flip flops are stamped with three separate stamps...the polka dots, the outline and the straps to create a fun layered look. I cut them out with Spellbinder's Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. The fun background paper features giant polka dots from the Raspberry Fizz Mix patterned paper collection.
Next up are the sentiments. There are oodles to choose from, I used two separate sentiments on my card. I finished off my sentiment strip with a snippet of Summer Sunrise Twill Ribbon and some tied Vintage Buttons. Notice how adding the Aqua Mist button adds a new color to my card with very little effort.
The finishing touch to my card is GLITTER! I used The Essential Glue Pad to generously ink the edges of my finished card. I applied the glue directly to the card edges using the ink pad itself. I then poured on the Prisma Glitter and tapped it off. You can scroll back through my photos and zoom in to see the highly glitterfied card. The shiny glitter reminds me of the sparkling pool and sand in your toes. Fun stuff!!

Summer will be here before we know it. I can't wait to make more cards, party invitations and scrapbook pages using Day at the Beach. And let me just say.....there are stamps in this set to create the perfect margarita.....what's not to love?!!
