Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) to 4-1/4″ x 11″, and scored in half at 5-1/2″, for card base
  • Island Indigo CS to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (DSP) to 4″ x 5-1/4″

Stamped with the Day at the Beach stamp set:

  • umbrella in Basic Black ink onto the Serene Scenery DSP
  • umbrella in Basic Black ink onto a scrap of Succulent Garden DSP

Stamped with the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set:

  • sentiment in Island Indigo ink onto the Serene Scenery DSP


  • the umbrella’s shadow with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker onto the Serene Scenery DSP

Fussy cut using my Paper Snips :

  • umbrella top

Assembled the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue:

  • umbrella top over the stamped umbrella on the Serene Scenery DSP
  • Serene Scenery DSP onto the Island Indigo CS
  • Island Indigo CS onto the Crumb Cake card base
