Summer Cards

>> Tuesday, June 8, 2021

Hi Everyone,

I know it's not officially summer yet, but it's 90F degrees here, so I feel like it's in full swing! Here are a couple of cards to kick off the season.

This card I made a while ago, but I'm happy to share the beachy themed card today.  The beach just screams summer, and vacation, and relaxation, and happiness, and...! It's all goodness in my book.

I sponged some ink onto the background and the beach themed greeting too.  I made the beachy background by adding die cut wavy ric rack for water and some Splatter Background stamped sand.  A punched sun, die cut flip flops and some stamped and fussy cut starfish completed the card.  

A friend's son graduated from military school, so I chose to make him a patriotic graduation card. Red. white and blue says American summertime to me as well, so it's reflects the time of year for this milestone too.

I dry embossed the background and added a stamped panel made using Grad Hat Hooray.  The Graduation is the Beginning sentiment was die cut and I embossed and fussy cut the Brush Mortarboard, adding it with some pop dots.


Since this card was being sent to a guy, I resisted the urge to add gemstones and just added a gift!

Here hoping the summer season is off to a happy start for you!

These are two super cards, Karin! The grad card is perfect for a guy - I love the mixed background and classic layout. The beach card definitely has me thinking it's time to get some sand between my toes!!

I really love that summer card. Great layout, textures and bright and cheery.

Oh that graduation card is just perfect. I feel I have been cranking out graduation cards and that sentiment is one of my all time favorites. It is so fitting for graduates.
