Flip Flop Card

Here are my flip flop version of the calendar cards (see previous post).  The sentiment is from the same Paper Smooches clear stamp set.  Now, you would think I intend to give this to my hubby, but I actually made it for my son who always seems to be up to something dangerous that makes my mother's cautious heart do flip flops.
I love the summer saying I used on my other calendar/cards so I decided to use it again because it seems so appropriate for calendars. On these flip flops I added the flowers that can be made with the Paper Smooches flip flop die set.
Click on the images if you want to see a close up of the flowers.  The hibiscus stamen is a great detail. To the other flowers I added small sparkle adhesive crystals that I purchased in a gigantic pack from HM Ben Franklin Crafts (bargain priced!).
I wish I had photographed the Paper Smooches die set before I cut apart the pieces, but at least you can see that I place the pieces in a resealable snack bag before putting them back in the PS packaging....wouldn't want to loose any of the pieces!
There are lots of really great images and sayings in this PS stamp set.  I know I'll use it over and over for my Hawaii themed paper projects.  Once I get my 2016 Vippies calendars, I will start production on my cards.  Hope you've enjoyed this post and will return to this site often to see what else I've created. I'd love to get some feedback comments too...if you have time to spare.
