Paper Playtime-Delicious Die Cuts-Vacation

Well, here it is, the first Monday in June and time for a new challenge at Paper Playtime. As is the norm for the first Monday of each month-it is the Delicious Die Cuts turn. Make sure you use a die cut on your card somewhere. Now, it doesn't have to be a Cricut cut. It can be from any die cut machine. I have the honor of sponsoring the challenge. I will be giving away 2-6x6 paper pads. They are the Lost & Found-Union Square and Madison Avenue. Great papers in these!!

The theme of our challenge is "Make a Vacation card". For my card I started with a cardbase that I cut using my Cuttlebug and a Grand Nestabilities Grand Labels Four die. I love the shape. My great friend Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps makes the most awesome shape cards. I am always in awe of her creations. Go check them out. Awesomeness for sure!!!! I used the next to the smallest size for my card shape (makes it just a little smaller than an A2 card) and then used the smallest size for my bg piece. I then got busy designing my card. I used the Life is a Beach cartridge. I cut the sailboat on page 57 at 3.75 inches. I also cut the sun that can be found on page 44. Using the hide contour on my Gypsy Girl, I hide the face features and cut it at 1.25 inches. I then used a Happy Lashes face from Peachy Keen Stamps in place of the face I hid. The sentiment is from the Fun in the Sun stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. Go check them out. You'll be glad you did. Especially if you purchase some and try them out. I finished off my card by doing some faux stitching and popping the sailboat and sun up. Now, we really are in high hopes that you decide to join our challenge. We so love to see what you create. You have until noon, EST, on Saturday June 16th to link your card. Please no back links. New creations only. Also, due to the cost of postage, I can only mail in the US or to Canada. I'm really sorry about that! Although you don't have to be a follower of my blog to win, you do need to be a follower of Paper Playtime. Hop over and check out the cards that my DT Sisters have created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Then hop into you crafty area and create a Vacation card!!! Sure hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
