How fabulous is this card?!?! I just love the color combination and how simple it is. You can adapt this card style to any stamp set. I simply measured the greeting and lawn chair and that’s how I determined the size of the rectangles! Simple! Let’s get started on the dimensions for this one!

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 Berry Burst for the fabric. Since this is a Photopolymer Stamp Set, it was easy to line up the chair. There are notches in the chair as well that help! 🙂 For the greeting, I stamped it in Old Olive Ink!

Now it is time to layer and assemble the card! I layered the chair onto Old Olive (2-1/4″ x 2-1/2″) and the greeting onto Berry Burst (3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″). Next I took a piece of Old Olive Color Theory Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″) and wrapped some ribbon around it and into a knot. I used the New Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon which I love because it’s not bulky! It’s perfect! I layered this onto the card base and then added the greeting with Snail and the chair with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

I’m loving this summery card look and the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set! There is just so many amazing images and greetings. You can check out another sample here!
