Don't you love this Flip Flop Doormat from Bed Bath & Beyond? I knew it would be fun to recreate it on a card and hold summer here just a little bit longer.
I started by running 4 colors of cardstock thru the Cuttlebug for lines of texture. Then I used darker inkpads of the same color direct-to-paper to color just the raised parts of the stripes. I cut the shape of the flip-flop from each piece. Contrasting colors were used to cut out straps and a darker version of these were used to stripe the strap and stamp a flower for the toe.
The back of the straps were glued directly to the base but the toe portion was raised with a pop-dot. Then the flower was mounted with a second pop-dot and a glittery acrylic flower applied on top.
All the flip-flops were glued to a sage green base card using the alternating alignment from the inspiration piece. The text block "Sunny Days" is a puffy acrylic sticker.
