Lighthouse, Flip Flops, Beach Ball & Pail Summer - In Summer The Song - Thinking Of You - Easel card

Yogi here today using a bunch of summery files from Suzanne that were meant to be frames... But heck when do I do what's supposed to be done....

I'm using a couple rubber quote/sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design ("In Summer the Song..."); ("Thinking Of You small")

And I'm using 3 Silhouette files from Suzanne. Click on images to purchase 

Cut, scored and folded my white cardstock to create the easel structure. Cut another piece same size and adhered to card front. Cut a piece of Dark Blue Ruche heavy paper and adhered to card front. Cut a piece of white cardstock and adhered to card front.

Opened SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) and the 3 beach scenes. Ungrouped and separated them putting the lighthouse, rope frame and beach ball on a 2nd page. Color printed it out on white cardstock then fussy cut around the images. Yes I know you can print and cut, but since it was eons since I last did that I couldn't remember how to do it. and since I'm probably not going to use it for another eon... I was too lazy to figure it out...
Cut all the elements on page 1 below and while on my mat colored the various pieces. Inked the clouds with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek "Soft Fallen Snow". Adhered my lighthouse, clouds and seagull to my card front.

Stamped the quote using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist".

On the floor: Adhered a piece of beige Ruche heavy paper. It has a texture like wavy beach sand.

Adhered the beach ball and pail, scoring them to create my stopper. Scored a little section of the flip flops and adhered them as well.

Stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock using Versafine Clair "Twilight" and clear embossed. Cut it in an oval shape and sponged some Distress "Faded Jeans" around the edge.



  1. Great Summer Card, Yogi! I like the combination of all the elements on one card!

  2. Great idea to combine all the elements Yogi! That's one summery card!
