I decided to do a "side-step" card. This card folds flat to 4.25" high x 5.5" wide, with two extra "valleys" to decorate. There is no inside to this card, so the sentiment is printed on the outside of the card. You can use this style to highlight any layered message you'd like.
I used scraps of Close To My Heart's "Surf's Up" paper, focused on the pretty swirl/wave that was leftover after I cut a layout. I found other waves in scraps that I liked for the second focal point, and used the center of a sunshine-looking piece for the third focal point. The flip flops and surfer were cut using 3 scraps no bigger than 3x4", and the card base was also a leftover piece of CTMH Colonial White paper that was 5.5" x 8.5".
I hope you enjoyed seeing this card.
