Enjoy the Ride

amuse-bouche - Day 3

Dude! I'm totally stoked to show you my card!! ha ha ha How's that for surf talk :) Well...I am pretty stoked about ALL the new A Muse Summer Fun images!

Doesn't the new Alligator look like he's havin' a blast on the new Surfboard! "Enjoy the ride" is one of the new sentiments - and the Open Palm Tree is a new stamp too.



The Surfboard & Alligator are cut out and popped up on a dimensional. I stamped the Open Palm Tree on the white layer - plus cut out another one and paper pieced it on top. The leaves are not stuck down...so they pop up a little to give dimension.

To make the waves layer I drew freehand on white cardstock & cut it out -- then added glitter along the top edge. Cuttlebug embossing folders for added texture on the orange background layer - lightly sanded off to expose white cardstock.


Are you enjoying all the amuse-bouche treats so far? I'll have more tomorrow! And don't forget to check out the A Muse News Blog & the other Muse's blogs for more.
