Birthday card

Summer Afternoon

Hello!  Happy Tax Day!  I hope you’ve completed your taxes but if not, you’ve still got a few more hours to get them done.

Today’s card was inspired by Diana Gibbs and uses the Summer Afternoon Hostess set from Stampin’ Up, Sycamore Street DSP, and Summer Starfruit (new in color), Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla CS

This card measures 4 1/4″  x  5 1/2″  side open card (the fold is on the left side of the card)

I matted the card with the  Sycamore Street DSP and it measures 4 1/8″  x 5 3/8″

The next layer is 4 3/8″  x 3 3/8″  (Soft Suede) and 4 1/4″  x 3 1/4″  (Very Vanilla)

I used the swing from the Summer Afternoon Stamp set, stamped it in Black Staz-On ink, and colored it in with Soft Suede, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, and Pear Pizzazz.  I used markers where I had them and then my blender pens and ink for other parts.

On the inside of the card I cut a piece of Very Vanilla 5 1/4″  x 4″ and placed that in the card. I left it blank until I am ready to send it out and then I will add the sentiment I want to use. It’s probably going to be a birthday card.  I will also probably stamp a flower or some other stamp in the lower right corner of the card, just to add a little more to the card.

Well, I hope you like it.  Have a great day!
