I am too young (cough, cough) to have seen this movie when it was released in 1966, but I knew about the movie and did some research online because I wanted to create the same vintage feel when creating my summer surf party invite:
So let's start with the card base on this invite. The wood grain border stamp from Way out West makes for great drift wood when used with gray distress ink! As for the focal point, I decided to stamp and cut out the large image included in this set. When I cut it out I purposefully left out the bottom portion ("Legendary Summer 2012") so that I could stamp it again and use it on the card seperately. Love it!
For the inside, I created my invite details on my computer using a pair of great fonts I found online. If you are interested, you can find them here and here. I think they are the perfect finishing touches for this vintage surf party invite!
Now make sure you come back tomorrow for the full reveal of my little surf party, including some peeks at yet another new Waltzingmouse set! And make sure you stop in on the other design team members to see what they’ve created:

Have a great day!
