Dies R Us Summer Fun

A new challenge starts today at Dies R Us called Summertime Fun. What reminds you of a fun summer day?

When I think of summer time, two pictures immediately pop into my head. One is the beach and playing in the sand and another is time spent on our pontoon boat at Whiskytown Lake. For today's card, I decided on the beach. It has been a while since I have done a fancy fold card so I picked one of my favorites, the double display fold, and started my card. Lots of real estate and fussy cutting on this card.

I started by cutting a piece of white card for the center scene and sponging it to create my sky sea and beach. I added the elements from  Sue Wilson Island Paradise

Some IO beach and shells dies were added to the small inside panels and a rope die was used on the taller side panels.

The Cheery Lynn Summer Fun die was cut several times from sandpaper, different colors of glitter paper, and white for a base.  I fussy cut the elements and glued them to the white base. I put that on top of another sponged sea scene which was backed with an old Spellbinder's die.  It is nice to give some older dies some love again.

Summer is Fun with so many activities.  The DRU Team has some fabulous inspiration for you and if you link up, you will have a chance  to win a a gift certificate to the DRU STORE .
