Hi everyone – it’s Wednesday and I have some great news!
I submitted an application to join the Design Team at Crafty Creations Challenges and it was accepted! Yippee.
This is my first card as part of the team and the theme this week is a Summer Theme.
What do you think when you here this theme? A beach theme? Summer Sport? The list is endless.
I have gone with a warm Summer day theme. Here in Australia when we get those hot humid Summer days you just long for that cool Summer breeze to kick in so you can sit back and enjoy watching the sun go down.
The layout for my card has been inspired by the sketch layout from 4 Crafty Chicks.
The colours I have used are Cajun Craze, More Mustard and So Saffron with some Very Vanilla card stock.
The stamp is from the Just Believe set and I have inked the image with More Mustard ink and then taken a Cajun Craze marker and added some colour randomly before I stamped.
The sun was created using So Saffron, More Mustard an a touch of Cajun Craze ink which I sponged on the card. The sun was created with a post it note that I had punched out with the 1” (2.5 cm) Circle Punch.
I printed the words on the computer and punched out the Very Vanilla cardstock using the Modern Label punch. The Cajun Craze cardstock was also punched out with the Modern Label punch and I cut it in half to create the border.
The butterflies have been created using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die and of course there is ‘bling’!
Here is my card…
