Hi!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards here with you today!

Summer is nearing an end, but there's still time for a visit to the beach before it's back to the books.  Fortunately, there's no shortage of brads and washi tape with a beach theme at Eyelet Outlet.  For my card today, I used:

And here's my card with a view as one would see through a pair of sunglasses...check out those swanky diamonds on either side.  I made the card using a cut file from the Silhouette store.   It wasn't a card when it started; but with a bit of work, it ended up that way.

Before I added my elements, I randomly stippled the white background with soft sky ink.  Then I added my card stock pieces, covering them with the black frames.  Saving the best for last, I added the brads.  It was fun designing my scenes.  Here's a closer look at each side:

Inside, I used another file from the Silhouette store.  I printed it inside an outline of the glasses.  Seems like good advice for a great day at the beach.

Have you checked Eyelet Outlet's Flickr gallery yet?  It's like one stop shopping for inspiration from the amazing design team.  Of course, the blog shares a lot of additional details about the cards and projects, so don't stop visiting here.  And don't forget to check out our new Freebies page which is growing every week.
