With Memorial Day coming up, today is the perfect day to start thinking about summer and the beach. I have a whole bunch of cards to show you today because I have an upcoming 10 in 10 Beach class. The class features ten quick and easy cards with a beach theme. I absolutely love beach cards, so it was an easy class to design. The class uses a lot of new Impression Obsession products, so I thought I would show you a few of the cards.
I posted the seagull card first because when I saw the new saying from Impression Obsession, I knew I had to have it! If you have ever seen a seagull with a french fry, you recognize the high level of happiness that I am sure we all want. :)

Sea Gull D16109
For the second card, I used a great chair die. The die comes with flip flop dies, which would have have made a great embellishment for this card. However, if you are making quick and easy cards, you can't go overboard with embellishing!

How about a quick collage? I used a brand new conch shell from Impression Obsession and paired it with older IO images.

Beach cards wouldn't be complete without the shell cover a card background!
