It feels like summer here in Illinois and yellow and blue screams summer to me! Look at these beautiful colors and that relaxing chair!!!
Last week, I showed this card with Berry Burst and Old Olive but I think I like it even more in these colors! I wanted to show you how you can mix up the designer paper, ribbon, and colors to fit your preferences and supplies! I think the Linen Thread gives it more of a nautical look! SUMMER!!!! See I told you it screams summer! 🙂
I started with a Whisper White card base. Next I cut some Whisper White for both the greeting (3″ x 2″) and the chair (2″ x 2-1/4″)! For the chair from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, I used Chocolate Chip Ink for the base and Crushed Curry for the fabric. It was fairly easy to line up the chair since you can see through the stamp and there are notches that help! 🙂 For the greeting, I stamped it in Dapper Denim Ink!
Now it is time to layer and assemble the card! I layered the chair onto Crushed Curry (2-1/4″ x 2-1/2″) and the greeting onto Dapper Denim (3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″). Next I took a piece of Crushed Curry Color Theory Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″) and wrapped some Linen Thread around it and into a knot under the chair. I didn’t really want a bow so I just did a simple knot and hid it under the chair layer! Then I layered this onto the card base and then added the greeting with Snail and the chair with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
Here is another sample using more of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper. See how this card can use any style of Designer Paper and it still looks fabulous! What Stamp Set and/or Designer Series Paper would you use for this style of card? Let me know in the comments below!
