What if? Wed. Designers Choice Challenge



It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It’s Cheri’s turn and she is challenging us to make a card with the theme “Head to the Beach.”  Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge. 

For my card, I stamped Repeat Impression’s fun sand castle on a tan paper and cut out. I attached it to a blue hand made paper and attached that to a darker blue card. The front sunny piece was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and raised above the card with pop dots. I attached the shell charm with bakers twine to complete the card.

I am entering this card in the Summer Fun challenge at Sweet Stampin’ Challenge.

Stamping smiles, Karen
