My card uses the colours and a beach theme for our Australian Summer.



  • Cut a layer of soft peppermint green card.
  • Cut a second layer of DP in the same peppermint green shade.
  • Using my Silhouette Cameo and an Alpha from my Computer I cut the word 'happy' from the same peppermint card stock and using a glue pen adhered it to a Kaisercraft Sandy Toes Collectables shaped card. 
  • Adhered a starfish shape from the same pack to another banner and add  a HOLIDAY banner label to make the up the third.
  • Add one of the palm trees from the Collection to the right side of the DP.
  • Add two more shapes to the top left of the dp and Using a small brad, attach the three banners over the dp securing at the back.
  • Add some white twine finished in a bow at the side of the banners.
  • Using double sided tape adhere the dp over the Peppermint green card stock.
  • Trim, score and fold smooth white card to make a 4.25 x 5.5 inch top fold card.
  • Adhere the completed card front to the white card using double sided tape.

Thanks for calling past, hope you'll join in with the challenges this year :)
