Last Dream of Summer
by Lindsay

Hello Memory Box fans!

I know, I know..summer is on its way out, but I am desperate to hold on to it! With Autumn, and Christmas looming, I am about to shock you with a blast of color! So, as a last ode to the loveliness that is this season, I reached back to last release, and picked out this amazing silhouette image. With a bit of ink blending, and a simple die cut, I tried to capture my love for summer.


I started with a white card base, and blended in hues of blue, teal, and green. I spritzed some water onto the front, and daubed it up with a paper towel, achieving a splatter effect. Using the Spring released Wildflower Landscape die, I cut it from white card stock, and adhered it to the bottom of the card front.


Using a sentiment from the May released, Veggie Good set, I white heat embossed it onto black card stock. I trimmed it out, and adhered the block to the front of my card. To finish the card, I adhered a few butterflies, and a dragon fly from the Blooming Chrysanthemum die set. 


I added a bit of shimmer to the butterflies, and called it done. Thank you for humoring me and my summer themed card! I think I "might" have gotten it out of my system! Until then, happy crafting!

Love your enthusiasm for summer...especially when others insist on perpetuating Christmas almost all year 'round! Your card is charming and full of wonderful energy!
