Summer Week: Beach Cards

Here's the code for my cards on August 19th. I didn't know if I needed to cc to Heather, but I did so anyways! :-)      Hey there friends! This month the GCD blog is focusing on all things summer. From waves and splashes to palm trees and souvenirs, were going to show you how to incorporate two of  fun lines in your paper-crafted projects! Today I am going to show you two cards that celebrate one of the most-traveled to summer locations; the beach!
 I try not to go for the most obvious ideas, so I stayed away from sun, surf, beach balls and beach castles. I had this adorable little bathing suit cut file, so I die cut the suits using paper from the Oh Happy Day collection and strung them on some baker's twine! 
I love dimension and popped some of the suits up with foam tape! This card would be perfect to give to a girlfriend ready to sport her new suit at the beach! The next card
 is a little bit more my girlfriends and I! 
Okay, I don't have kids and I hate getting sandy, so my idea of beach fun is sipping a tropical drink while soaking in the sun! I die cut some umbrella drinks using patterned paper from the Flower Child collection. I love love love this collection, especially it's bright colors and geometric prints!
Too add a little dimension, I added some funky ribbon and popped the umbrellas up with some foam tape!
Well, that's it for me today! Check the blog for more amazing ideas and projects all month long!
