There is a contest going on over at BBTB2 and with summer fast approaching this one really appealed to me. The contest is to use one of the free images provided by Peggy Loves Vintage and you must use one Cricut cut.
First here is the image I chose - Glen and Dorothy. They just look like they're having such a fun time on the pier - on vacation maybe?
Next is my finished card...
I cut around the image and then around Glen's feet and Dorothy's hand so I could make it look like they were playing in the water. The striped paper is from DCWV Cafe Mediterranean and I had the postcard image cut from a piece of K&Company paper. For my Cricut part I used my Life's a Beach cart and cut the title, pier post, and pelican (all enhanced with Prismas and OMS). I used my Fiskar's wave border punch to cut two shades of blue for the water. Now I'm really ready for the beach!
