Good Monday morning.  I have a fun die cut flip flops beach scene to share with you today using the Impression Obsession Better with Flip Flops as the focal point.  I paired it with Flip Flops, Beach Fence, Small Grass Border and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.

I hope you'll come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene.

The Sand, Ocean and Sky

I have to admit that the colors for the sentiment and ocean were chosen to match the flower designer paper that I used for the flip flops.  I used a stylus and foam tip to apply tan ink to the sand area of the scene.  I cut an additional strip of sand using my deckle scissors and and colored it to match the scene base.  I cut a piece of Eclipse masking tape, placed it across the middle of the scene layer and applied the navy ink with the stylus and foam tip.  The mask was removed and I used the stylus and foam tip along with a cloud stencil to create the clouds.  I dabbed the stylus foam tip on scratch paper several times before using it with the stylus since the ink was so dark.  I wanted the same shade of blue for the sky but only wanted light touches of it.

The Sea Foam

I heat dried the scene so the brown and blue ink would not seep out onto the white embossing paste.  Then I dabbed embossing paste on the water area of the scene to create the sea foam and sprinkled it with glitter before it dried to add sparkle.

Come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene card.

The Frame, Grass and Fence

I used double stick tape to attach the two largest frame sections together and then attached the sand layer to the back bottom of the frame.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and then attached it over the scene card base.  I colored the fence sections and bent them a little bit to make it appear old.  I tucked the fence and grass in behind the sand layer and attached using glossy accents.

Finishing the Die Cut Flip Flops Beach Scene

I cut the sentiment using dark blue paper to match the ocean and flowers in the flip flops.  Oooops…..it was a little to large to fit inside the sky area of the scene without overlapping the dark blue water and making it so you couldn’t read the last word.  I had no choice but to secure some of the sentiment to the top of the frame.  I rolled up a long strip of 1/4″ double stick tape and attached pieces of it to the back of several keys letters and attached it to the scene.

I cut the flip flops out of retired designer paper and attached the pieces together using glossy accents.  I finished by attaching the flip flops to the frame with pieces of mounting tape. 

I hope you'll come check out how I made this fun die cut flip flops beach scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut flip flops beach scene with the deep blue sea.  It is a bit unusual but I really like how it pops against the pure white frame and card base.
