I chose the title as the footwear featured on the card are known as Flip Flops in the USA, Thongs in Australia and Jandels here in New Zealand - so you can take you pick 😉
I made this card for a young man who lives quite casually, and who loves the beach and sea.
The technique used, that of a 'floating' element, I learnt from Natasha Foote, here.
I used kraft cardstock for the base, and then a layer of red/brown corrugated card.
The greeting was embossed in gold on the kraft card, and mounted it over a layer of gold paper.
The floating element was made using strips of gold paper, and two lots of coloured card that were scraps/snippets left over from hand made backgrounds.
In my mind they represent the sun, sky and sand.
The 'jandels' were cut out of the element, and also out of dark brown card, and the brown ones re-inserted. The whole floating element was mounted slightly to the side of the main panel and trimmed.
The inside was finished with some glitter tape.
Sorry about the poor focus, blame the sparkle off the glitter.
