Flip Flops


Bring on Flip Flop weather... Today is release day at Doodle Pantry, and I have two cards to share which showcase the new set, Flip Flops. Talk about fun to work with!  This set comes with both colored and outline images, sentiments and digi papers.  AND the best part, this set is free with any purchase from April 5th through April 24th!  

For the card above, I used one of the digital papers that comes with the set for the background layer and also used the same paper to piece the insoles.  The straps and soles were colored with Copics and layered with clear gel.  The little flowers are "leftovers" from a punched border and topped with tiny pearls.  Finally, I added a ribbon belly band to hold the ornate tri-fold card base together.

For the next card, I resized the image and sentiment to fit my design.  I used dotted digi paper from Doodle Pantry's Watermelon Lunch set to die cut the borders and paper piece the insoles.  Instead of coloring, I glittered the straps and soles with MS glitter. The tiny flowers were die cut and the larger flowers were punched.  After adding the flowers, I finished up with lots of bling.



Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Many thanks for taking the time to stop by to see what I've been up to.
