CD Sunday - Summer Vacation

I love beach huts so when I heard that Meg had chosen 'Summer Vacation' as the theme at CD Sunday  I just had to include them on my card.

I decided to make a side stepper card so that I could use the image of the long line of beach huts. The scene was created in Serif Craft Artist and then printed onto 3 separate sheets of card before cutting out and sticking to the base card. 

I used 10 different digikits in Craft Artist which I've listed below in case anyone is interested in buying them. The line of ice creams and shells were created by grouping 5 together and then using the 'stamp' button to make a line of them.It took my quite sometime to get everything the right size and in the right place.
The challenge will run for the next 2 weeks and ends on 23rd July at 13:00. Don't forget you must use something from a CD on your card to in with a chance of winning a price. Good Luck!

Digikits I've used:
CS Summer Seaside - beach sign/star fish/some of the shells.
Beside the seaside - single beach hut/deck chair/wind break/spade/some shells/donkey(isn't he cute?).
On The Beach - sun umbrella/bag/2 sand buckets/some ice lollies/tri coloured cornet/sand castle
50s fever -pink cornet.
Summer At The Seaside- dog/girl/boy.
TGL By The Sea - line of beach huts.
Zoo Friends - clouds.
Cs Country Garden - sun.
Playground - blue sky.
Pirates - sand background.

  5. Pamela your card is amazing.....what a lot of work has gone into creating it. Thanks for the tip too about using the stamp button. Wynn xx

  6. A super card Pamela, such a fabulous design - your row of beach huts looks brilliant and I love all of the little details.

  7. This is a fantastic card, so colourful and I love the line of ice creams and beach creatures along the bottom.
    I have to admit that the stitching on my beach hut card is not my own - it is already there in the Halycon days cdrom and is a feature of the cd as the images are all meant to look handsewn.

    1. Well I still love the look of the stitches Linby LOL! Thanks for your kind words about my card.

  8. This is a lovely card Pamela and the shape works perfectly with the design.
