Ahhh… warm waters and sandy beaches… the perfect summer right? Island Blue is that beachy color, a rich perfect cyan! I love pairing this up with other bright colors that pop… and of course it goes great with black! I’ve found plenty of goodies to go with it, and have a walkthrough video for you below.

I’ve used the Simple Stories DIY Boutique papers along with a few circles of Island Blue card stock to lay down some color.

Of course I lifted up a few of the circles with some foam squares, I love dimension!

Pretty clean and simple… a great card to make on the go!
