Pool Party Card Recreation

I saw this design on Instagram (dasmimz) and had to recreate it!

I made a few changes but I think it still captures the fun of summer. 😊

It took me awhile to completely figure out how to make that inner “wall” of the pool, so I thought I would include some process photos in case anyone else wants to see the visual!

First, cut the pool shape using the Stitched Pond die.
Next, take the inside “pond” piece that was created in the first step and lay the Stitched Pond Frame die on top of it. You want to line up the edges and then move it down so that it’s offset. I recommend moving it down a good amount.
Run that through your die cut machine and you’ll get the little edge piece you need.
Take that little edge piece and place it inside of your pool shape.
Finally, slide that little edge piece behind the pool shape until the stitching is no longer visible. This is why I recommend offsetting that piece a good amount when you die cut, so that you have a big piece to work with as you slide the piece out of sight. If the edges are visible, you can cover them up with critters or other things later on. And that’s it!
