I guess I’m in a real summer mood right now. Every time I make a card I want to use bright summer colors. Fall and the holidays are right around the corner and I want to squeeze out every last minute of the summer! In the papercrafting world we are usually working a bit ahead. Beginning August 4th our new August – December Mini Catalog goes live, and we will be headlong into fall and the holidays. So there is just a short time to get in a few summer cards 🙂
Today’s card begins with a Whisper White card base. A 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock was then stamped in So Saffron ink with the Buffalo Check stamp set, and adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Glue. A Square Vellum Doily was glued to the center of the Buffalo Check Piece using Multipurpose Glue. A piece of Whisper White card stock was cut with one of the Stitched Rectangles in the Stitched So Sweetly Die Set. This piece was stamped with the large flower and leaves in the Gorgeous Posies stamp set. The centers of the flowers were stamped with Soft Suede ink and this piece was adhered over the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Two bows were cut from Bermuda Bay card stock using the bow die from the Wreath Builder Dies. They were adhered to the top right corner of the rectangle with Multipurpose Glue. A gem from the Elegant Faceted Gems was adhered to the center of the bows. Two birds from the Birds & Branches stamp set were stamped on a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Bermuda Bay ink and cut out with the coordinating dies. Their tummies were colored with So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment is from the Lovely You stamp set and is stamped on a 1/2″ piece of Whisper White card stock in Bermuda Bay ink and flagged on the right end using Paper Snips.
