Make Summer Cards With the Colorful Seasons Bundle
It’s so much fun to make summer cards with the Colorful Seasons Bundle, (page 147 of the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog) but as I showed you a few days ago this collection is also great for Christmas Card Designs, too.
I can’t stress enough how much I LOVE those adirondack chairs! Aren’t they just the cutest? And there’s so much you can do with that die, too. I just cut off the “back” of a chair to create the little table shown here.
The gradient blue background that I used for the card sentiment is from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, part of the same Color Theory Suite. I stamped the saying in white craft ink and then embossed in white embossing powder so it would really stand out. Of course, the oval was cut out with my Big Shot using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
The glass of lemonade is also a stamp included in the Colorful Seasons stamp set and a framelit included in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies (both included in the Colorful Seasons Bundle), but you might have noticed they’re each facing different directions.
How did she do that?
To create a glass with the straw facing the opposite direction, I first stamped it onto a piece of plastic (being careful not to let it slip) and then stamped that onto the card stock. I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in where needed.) Then I cut it out using my awesome Paper Snips.
Cool, huh? You might have to practice a bit, but it’s fun when you know how! You can use wax paper for this technique, too.
Lounging outside on a warm summer day sipping lemonade… sounds perfect! Your friends probably think so, too. Use the Colorful Seasons Bundle to make summer cards your friends are going to love!
