I am really NOT a summer person. I like the colors, and the sunshine and the long days, and all the flowers. I DO NOT like the HEAT. Re my last post about Michigan summers....yeah.....Not with this horrific heat wave we're having! Lawdy, can we get us some SEPTEMBER already??
My nephew/godson Jared had his birthday, and I made him this card--
This card started with a base of SU card stock, with some layers of cut and punched MME Fine and Dandy Boy DP. I did some detail with yellow and white twine from We R Memory Keepers.
I stamped Jenny Bowlin Studios seal stamp in two colors to create a sun on some SU daffodil delight cs, and circle cut it with a spellbinders die and my Cuttlebug.
I die cut some clouds with my A*muse studio clouds duo die and sponged them with Memento cantalope ink to make them look like a sunrise, then popped them up with some foam tape. That little kiss of aqua behind the sun is a circle sticker from Paper Source.
The truck is SU's Loads of Love set, and the dude and presents are from the Loads of Love extender set. I hand drew the little swirls that look like exhaust/movement. I stamped the truck both on the card stock and a piece of DP, then cut out the DP one and pieced it on top of the stamped image. I used copics to color things in. I mounted the whole thing on some random gray cs, and mounted it up with foam tape.
The inside looked like this--
I repeated the use of that seal stamp to make my sun, and I used a piece of smashbook tape to help attach the blue banner piece.
I hand drew a border around the yellow cs with a superfine tipped marker. I like how it personalizes it a little.
So- That's my birthday card!
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay out of the heat, for heaven's sake.
