This is my BBTB2 DT card for this week… we were to use Leaf 1 from Life is a Beach… to be honest I was at a loss at what to do with this cut.. Then my daughter called and Katie a co worker of hers wanted me to make a Mother’s Day card for her mom… and her mom loves bright colors and flip flops… and a few other things…well this card came to me when I started working with the leaf and the flip flops… and then this idea came to me…I was excited and nervous at the same time…then when I finished the card I was just too excited at how everything turned out…. I hope that Katie and her mom loves it and I hope the visitors at BBTB2 like it too!!!…. Be sure and visit BBTB2 and see all the DT projects… thank you so much for looking!… and I hope that you enjoy the video!… Hugs, Jeannie

Life’s a Beach
Wave Borders cut @ w 4.75 x h 1.10 ….. On the Cricut I would cut these at 1 ¼ inch.
Squares welded to the waves the taller one is cut @ w 4.75 c h 2.46 .. Shorter square cut @ w 4.75 x h 2.03... Using the Cricut I would cut these with a paper trimmer…both 4 ¾ inches wide and the taller one 2 ½ inches tall the shorter one 2 inches tall…. Then I would adhere these to the waves.
Squares(3) cut @ w 1.49 x h 1.39 inches…using the Cricut I would use a paper trimmer to cut these squares all @ 1 ½ inches tall and wide.
Doodle Charms
Sun cut @ 3.61 x h 1.93 inches…you will have to unlink the width and height to get this size… on the Cricut I would cut this @ 2 inches… but it will not be as wide.
Life is a Beach
Leaf 1 and its layer cut @ h 1.20.. Set the height and the width will be right… on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 ½ inches.
Flip Flops and their layers cut @ h 1.20 set the height and the width will be right …on the Cricut I would cut these at 1 ¼ inches
Paper Doll (Everyday)
Fish cut @w 1.08 x h 1.26...on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 1/4 inches.

I love this card Jeannie! Your video turned out great too. I made
my Mom's mother's day card today.
I had to put it in the mail so I
didn't get a picture of it.
