more Practicing Creativity July release sneak peek!

Hi all! Here is another sneak peek for Practicing Creativity's July release - My Beach Cottage.

I used the flag stamps in the new My Beach Cottage set to make this little birthday card. I think the flag image is perfect for a little birthday banner. After stamping it using various inks, I cut them out and curled the ends up a bit. I glued the twine on the cardstock first, then attached the flags on the twine using some Glossy Accents and rolled up glue dots.

For the cake, I trimmed off the pointy tips of the flag, then cut the remainder of it into two pieces. I then glued them on the cardstock using some rolled up glue dots. The cake stand and candles were then added using my Copic Multiliner. The tiny sentiments also came with the kit.

That's the peek I have for you today. Don't for get to check out Courtney, Dana and Paulina's blogs, I know they have some super fun sneak peeks for you, too!
