Perfect 1st Day of Summer Card

Sun & Surf Cricut Flower Market Card

It’s official!  Today is the First Day of Summer.  We’ve had some really HOT days here already, so to me, it already seems like summer is here.  Plus, once school ends, I think both parents and kids (and teachers!) alike, feel as though summer has officially begun.

Angled Sun & Surf Cricut Flower Market Card

Today I wanted to share 2 fun summer cards–one I created (and have offered at my monthly Card Buffets) and one I received from Laurie L.  Both are unique and definitely say summer in their own way.

My Sun & Surf card was created using CTMH’s Cricut Flower Market (their most recent one; but fingers crossed they’ll be another *NEW* Cricut Collection released on August 1st!)  I used each of CTMH’s newest colors from their Adventure palette (Pansy, Emerald, Willow, Lemon, Tangerine, Blossom and Raspberry) to give a nice bright pop of color.

Summer Double Z Fold Card

Laurie’s card uses CTMH’s *NEW* No Worries Paper Collection.  It’s a fun Double Z-Fold Card.  It also uses the *NEW* Summer BBQ Stamp Set and the No Worries Sequins (these might be my favorite sequins offered!)

Open Summer Double Z Fold Card

So when you open it up, you get the full pennant banner that says “summer” to show. A fun way to wish someone a wonderful summer full of happiness and surprises; just like this card!

The color combination in this card is great.  I don’t know that I would have put it together.  But I will definitely be using it together very soon!  It contains: Sapphire, Lagoon, Glacier and Tangerine.

Don’t forget that CTMH recently added an additional special to the month of June–get 25% off all cardstock.  With all these beautiful colors I’ve shown in these 2 cards, you may be inspired to stock up on some cardstock.  And the timing couldn’t be better!  To purchase some CTMH cardstock or other CTMH items, please visit MY ONLINE CTMH STORE.

Here’s to a great start to a wonderful summer…enjoy it!

Thankful for You Card


Hello Foxy Thankful for You Card

Today’s card is another created with Close To My Heart’s June Stamp of the MonthHello Foxy. While a bit cutesy, this stamp set definitely is versatile!

Hello Foxy Stamp of the Month

A couple of fun things I really liked about this card and wanted to point out are:

1.) While the wreath in this stamp set isn’t specifically designed to go with our Wreath Thin Cut, I thought it wasn’t too shabby of a union.

At first I was planning to fussy cut this image but right before I grabbed my scissors to do so, I remembered this die and wondered how closely it would match up.

Wood Slat Embossing of Thankful Card

2.) The second thing I did (which I really like how it turned out–even though it is super subtle) is to use our Wood Slats Embossing Folder with our Woodgrain Pattern (from our Rustic Home Fundamentals Paper Collection.)  It adds just a little more texture and a little more depth to the card.

Don’t forget, the Hello Foxy Stamp of the Month is only available through the end of June.  To get your own stamp set, please visit MY ONLINE CTMH STORE.

Side View of Hello Foxy Card

I love the unique look of this card. Granted, you have have to be selective on where you write on the inside of the card to ensure it doesn’t show through, but the creative layout of this card is worth it, I think.  Wouldn’t you agree?
