Swimming Window Cards

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!!

So adorable- I love the square one only because I prefer square cards over rectangle ones. :)
