Another card for ' The Town Scrapper'

Hi everyone! Wasn't it a beautiful sunny day today? Sure hope it stays this way for the weekend for all those longing for summer.

I have made another card for Phebe and her store 'The Town Scrapper'

This one is different than I have done before and I have learned a lot by making it!!!

Here is the front of the card:

Here it is half open:

And here is the inside of the card:

A close up of: CC Designs Polka dot Emma:

Would you believe this simple card took me half a day to make? Everything I did went wrong! Don't you hate it when you have a day like that??
I used Bassil white and red Bassil Card Stock
DP was Imaginisce : A shore thing and Penguin Paradise
The whole of the white card stock was cut 11 x 4 1/4 then using the Scor-Pal I scored it at 2" and 6 1/2 "
Once the card is folded you can just measure the pieces you need to cover the top and bottom flap, the inside pocket and the tag. As well as your front tab. Cut them out of the DP of your choice; round all the appropriate corners, and decorate as you wish. I had found these flip flops years ago who knows where and I thought one was just perfect for this card! I am so happy I tend to keep everything cute that I find!!!
Please check out Phebe's Blog : Humble Pie as well as her store site. She sells all kinds of brands of papers and stamps and you never know if there may be a special on her store site. Please just click on the left side of my blog on either of the sites you wish to look at. I know you will be glad that you did............
Have a wonderful Friday everyone! Don't forget how much I love to hear your comments on my cards :o)
Love Candy

Wow, your card is so awesome!! I bet once you made this one that it will be much easier to make a bunch. Great work, that stamp is so cute!

This is such a cute card, Candy. It certainly turned out well considering the things that went wrong! Now you can probably sit down and make it with your eyes closed...

Hi Candy,
I think the time and love you put into this card really shows. It is such a cute summery card!! I love all the layers and to finally open it up to find the cute bikini girl!! What a great idea!!
