Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway. My wrist is healing!!! My cast is off and I am in the middle of PT! I am getting my range of motion back and can now cut with scissors YAY!!! They told me that crafting will help :)
This week at SweetSassyDiva, our theme is Lazy Days of Summer.
This summer my son Tanner took swimming lessons with a friend (and daycare kid of mine). I really loved their instructor Drew. He worked with Jadon a lot and let Tanner do the tricks he wanted to do. He had endless patience with them which is rare from a high school boy!! I wanted to boys to give Drew a special card to say thanks.
I used the card feature from Life is a Beach and sized the cards to 4 inches and 5 inches. Because of the paper I used that looked like pool water, I set up the cards to cut out a little different than my normal "paper saver" mode.
The cards do not have layers for the swimmer, so I created my own. I copied and pasted the card after hiding the extra cuts I did not need.
Here is a screen shot of the "cut" page. I cut out the images in cream, red, yellow and blue cardstock scraps.
I used a micro pen to draw in the face, mask and details on the trunks and flippers. I used Glossy Accents for the mask and the bubbles. I had to get out my scissors to cut out the bubbles, leg and flipper that overlapped the frame of the card.
For this guy, there was a layer piece inside the cutout of the card.
Here are the two cards side by side. I had so much fun making these simple cards!!
