Celebrate Summer

FullSizeRender (24)

Good Morning everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying your Memorial Day weekend.  Since this is the unofficial start of the summer season, I thought I would create a summer theme card for you.

I used the new Postage Set Die to cut a muslin layer and a watercolor paper layer for my card.  Using the Postage Set Stencil, I placed the stencil over the watercolor paper and inked with Broken China Distress Ink through the stencil.  Keeping the stencil in place mist lightly with water.  Die cut the Swimming Seahorses, Seaside Treasures and a rectangle layer from watercolor paper and color using various distress inks.  Using gold metallic paper, die cut the Sketchy Rings.  Once your card is assembled, stamp the word Celebrate and emboss with gold embossing powder.

I love that card, Donna and all those the team have been showing with the Postage Set dies and stencils.

Gorgeous card, Donna. Love it. :)

Wonderful card.

Love this!

Love your composition/designing Donna! I don't have the sketchy rings die but if you keep using it, you're gonna tempt me beyond my ability to resist! lol

Fantastic card, love the scene you've created, Cathy x


That is just gorgeous. Love the circles and the seahorses. Hugz
