Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme. This month the theme is Summer Fun!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Shaded Spruce cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 1-1/2 x 3-1/2 piece of Shaded Spruce stripe Regals 6×6 DSP was colored with the Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends and added to a 3-1/2 x 4-3/4 piece of Basic White cardstock on the left side.
- The outline of the Sweet Citrus fruits was stamped with Shaded Spruce Ink and the inside with Sweet Sorbet Ink. The inside was then colored with the Sweet Sorbet Dark Stampin’ Blends to even out the color.
- The seeds were stamped with Memento Black Ink using the TINY little center from the Pansy Patch stamp set. They were proportioned just right! The watermelons were cut with the Sweet Citrus Dies.
- An extra full citrus was cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock and colored the strips free-hand with Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends. They were placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greeting from Sweet Citrus stamp set was stamped with Shaded Spruce Ink on 1/2 x 4-3/4 piece of Parakeet Party cardstock. It was added to a 1/4 x 3-3/4 strip of Basic Black cardstock, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The flowers from Sweet Citrus were stamped with Sweet Sorbet Ink and cut with the dies, then added around the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Three green In Color Pearls were added to the center of the flowers.
- Some Sweet Sorbet Baker’s Twine was tied in a bow and added to the flowers with a Mini Glue Dot!
I think this was pretty successful and sure screams summer to me! Make sure to check out Mary’s Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary!
