I do adore summer themed cards and this is no exception. Don’t these fresh and clean white daisies with the gray and yellow color palette just scream summer?
My card came together rather quickly and that is also a plus for summer crafting when time is short. My card base is a 5-1/2″ square and I added some layers of yellow, white and gray to frame my sentiment. I cut my sentiment twice, once in dark gray and once in a lighter gray polka dot design paper and layered them to create a shadow effect. After layering the two pieces, I adhered the sentiment to the center of my card. My flowers are simply three layers of the smallest daisy with the petals curved slightly up and layered together. The center is a yellow 1omm resin flatback bead. I created a bed of greenery under my sentiment and added the flowers on top of that.

I finished off my card with a pretty plaid bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Yellow and Gray Plaid Ribbon. Plaid is a perfect ribbon for summer themed projects.

Absolutely beautiful summer card Bonnie!! Love the colors and your flowers too!
This is such a wonderful Summery card – I can almost smell the newly mown grass(avoiding the daisies of course!) Chrisx
Saw your card at a challenge blog and had to take a closer look. So beautifully done!!
Thanks so much Lola. I’m so glad you liked my card and so happy to have you stop by!
I love the daisies as they are my favorite flower. And you are correct when you say that ” the gray and yellow color palette just screams summer.” Great colors, I would not have thought to put the gray with yellow.
Beautiful summery colours. I love yellow and yet very rarely use it on my cards, but you have inspired me to use it on my next project.
Glad you stopped by at 613 Avenue create.
