Just Beachy!

A CAS card using Faith's new beginning of the month Designed 2 Delight Digital image Flip Flops. Hurry over and you can participate in this month's progressive challenge and pick up free digis all month!


I printed the digi image and sentiment at the same time then cut my CS in half and had an instant card! Even though it is a one-layer CAS card, I took the liberty to layer up the inside and make it a gift card holder.

Ha! You can't stop with one layer either! Goodness, I have the hardest time doing that!!! Absolutely adore this card, Sally! The card front is so delightfully CAS, and the inside is so delightfully layered - and you are so clever!!! Too much fun!

Olga said...

I'll agree with Patti, one layer cards are the hardest for me, but look at you, this is fantastic!!!!

so sorry I didn't get to comment sooner, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! Of course beachy themes are my favorie and you framed this one perfectly!! The one layer (on the front) is gorgeous and embellishing the inside is wonderful! hum...wonder who that gift card is for...could it be for a special someone that has a birthday coming up?!? Say someone like a grandpuppy?!?! She would love to hit PetCo and buy a special dress for her birthday party, ya know! :) hehe, JK! ;0)

Aloha, KL
