Another Day In Paradise-My Scrap Chick

This is one of my favorite cards from My Scrap Chick! Bright-Cheerful and flexible enough with 4 different sentiments that you can change it up and make it over and over again!

I made this card for a couple guys-so I limited the pink somewhat :)!If you look below-I will show you a little trick I have used for several years-makes it easy for placing small letters etc.  I believe the idea came from Jennifer McGuire.

Cut out your letters...I always add a box around letters-a habit I picked up from cutting vinyl.
Put a piece of Glad Wrap press and seal over your letters and burnish really well.

Pull up your letters...they will not stick like vinyl so I give each letter a little nudge with my paper piercer. They will stay stuck to the wrap but because they have a fair amount of suction to the mat -they need a little help. A little nudge to dislodge is all it takes.

 Here is what it looks like when pulled from the mat.
I lay it down and add some Zig 2 way squeeze and roll glue.
Here you go...all glued up and ready to go!
Gently place over your prepared piece, arrange as needed and then stick down.  You can still nudge the letters a little if needed. Wait just a minute for the glue to stick and then take off the wrap.  MUCH easier than placing each individual letter.  In the file, the letters are set perfectly for cutting and placing on the panel. 

Love the sun in the background...wishing I had my toes in the sand right now!

And of course they fold flat to easily fit in an envelope!

Wow, what a neat idea with the letters, and what a cool card! Love how you've used the patterned paper, especially on the wave. I could use some of that paradise. Looks like sun today, though -- yay!

Great card. I followed the link you put on FB Dreaming Tree's group. I believe it's Press and Seal that you're using, especially if you got the info from Jennifer McGuire, because her husband invented it.
