I just read my blog posts for the past few weeks and realized I have been posting lots of gift bags, wreaths, and pinwheels, but not nearly enough cards. So today I'll post a few of them.
This is one of my favorite cards that I created back in June. I made it to celebrate summer.
The layering paper was some K & Company that I had for years. I remember loving that collection and wish I had more of it. The pitcher of lemonade is a Lawn Fawn stamp that I fussy cut after I embossed and colored it. I added some Wink of Stellar to it to make it sparkle. I backed the image with foam tape to make it really stand out. Notice the shadow effect I created for the "happy" sentiment.
I've been using this technique a lot lately. I use different Spellbinder label dies to create frames on my cards. When I study this picture I wish I had run the white frame through an embossing folder to add texture to it. Next time. But I do still love the card.
I love this card. I used a Sizzix die to create the popsicle. The popsicle is backed with a piece of fun foam. The white paper behind the popsicle was run through an embossing folder.
I used cans of frozen juice to make popsicles with my preschool students. They were always so excited to make them and eat them. There are a couple of cans of juice in my freezer. I realized last night that I should use them up to make some popsicles for us. They'd be perfect in this humidity. Hmm, if I make some right now they'll be frozen by the time Robbie gets home from work...
Have a great day!
