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.

I was doing really well up until I tried to create a ‘ground’ for this cutie to stand on.  I should have just let him float!  ?  Ah well, practice makes perfect, right?!

Christmas is a Piece of Home

Today I’m sharing one more holiday card with you featuring some of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This card design can easily be used for any occasion by changing up the sentiment and color combination.
12-22-16-1
My card design is pretty basic.  My card base is a 5-1/2″ square.  Then I built up layers topping it off with the Duetschland Square Doily.  The sentiment was stamped and then cut with the Pierced Stacker #2 die.  My flowers were created using the Small and Medium Tea Rose dies using two colors of cardstock.  The ivory cardstock was inked for more interest.

The card was finished off with a double loop bow created on the Bow-it-All V3.0 using Vintage Christmas Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
