Jumbo Squiggle Border

I have a two cards for you today, using all of the products in this month’s collection. You know I had to create a scene with both of them, right? Could. Not. Help. Myself.

My first card is using the sweet little PI – Surf Chick image and a sentiment from the exclusive Surf’s Up mini set. I stamped her on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut her out and popped her up on the little scene I created.


To create my scene, I’m using my Die-namics Jumbo Squiggle Border for the sand—love how it makes it look uneven. Then I added a Die-namics Catch a Wave ocean, some Die-namics Cloud Trio clouds, and of course, a Die-namics Sunshine sun. The sentiment was stamped on one of the Die-namics Sentiment Strips die cuts and also popped up on foam.

Here’s the inside, with another copy of the sweet PI – Surf Chick and another sentiment from the Surf’s Up mini set. Doesn’t this make an adorable get well card? Or even a “thinking of you” card?


My second card features PI – Surfer Dude and another sentiment from the Surf’s Up mini set. He was also stamped on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers before being cut out and popped up on his own scene.


His scene was created with some torn Fossil card stock sand, some Die-namics Flat-Bottom Clouds, and another Die-namics Sunshine sun. I’m also using Die-namics Jumbo Squiggle Border for the beach umbrella element, although it’s hard to see.

The inside shows the little PI - Surfer Dude again, and a sentiment from that set.


Here are the
Die-namics dies I used on these cards:



Flat Bottomed Cloud Die-namics
Catch a Wave Die-namics

Thanks SO much for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge!
