Summer Floral Cards






I am sure almost everyone is tired of the summer heat so today’s cards focus on summer flowers.  Nature's Bouquet is featured on both cards, along with some new Distress Oxide inks.



This card starts with a background of Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.  Using a rectangle template, these colors were picked up from a craft sheet.  The Nature’s Bouquet image was stamped on top.  This was added to layers of green and pink, along with a butterfly border, punched with a Martha Stewart Border Punch.  The sentiment is from the Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet.



This second card uses the same inks, but this time they were sponged on and a die cut was used as a stencil.  Once again the Nature’s Bouquet was stamped on top.  The sentiment is from the To My Friend Word Block.  Small pink butterflies, created with the same Martha Stewart Border Punch, were added.

Try to keep cool.
