Cut It Up Challenge #204 - Create Your Own Background Paper

Hello crafters! I hope you are all staying safe. Sadly, the covid numbers in San Diego are increasing again so many restaurants and bars that had reopened were told they had to close again. I feel so bad for the owners and especially the small business owners. They are having a hard time staying open.

On to today's Cut It Up challenge -- Create Your Own Background Paper.  This is a really fun challenge and you can make any background that you like. A friend of mine is obsessed with anything with flip flops on it so I made this card for her birthday, which is in August.
Solid paper: Recollections
Sunray background paper: My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing"-Tangerine
Sunray Die: My Creative Time
Sentiment and Flip Flop Die: Simon Says Stamp

  1. This is such an amazing background! So many fun, summery patterns and colors with the flip flops! Great sentiment...I wear flip flops 3 out of 4 seasons. I even wear them in the barn, which is a real no-no!!

  2. Hi Leslie! This is such a wonderful summer themed card! I love your choices for the background papers - they are so pretty and the flop flop images are perfect! I'm so sorry to hear that your numbers are on the rise in your neck of the woods! Stay Safe!
