Summer Garden

Seeing as we seem to already have had our Summer in the UK, here is a card I have made to remind us of what it can be like.

The card base was made from white textured cardstock and when scored and folded measures 17 x 17 cm.

The central frame and corners are die-cuts out of a printed paper by Kaisercraft.

The central panel and text sentiment are from a set of seasons stamps by Beth Hughes.  Once stamped  on cream card in Memento tuxedo black, the frame was coloured with Marvey alcohol brushmarkers and all elements were stuck in place with a glue pen.

A very simple card.

  8. Love it Sid for its simplicity! You remind me that simple is beautiful. I'm sure many of us here in the US would trade you, your summer weather. I seem to have traded one hot place for another by moving from Tx to Ca. But the mornings here really are a gift. And it usually stays cool until 1-2pm. What i wouldn't give for a dreary , cool, rainy summer....Thanks so much for sharing your card...just lovely. Hugs! deb

  9. Lovely cheeful flowers - let's hope we still have some summer to come!

  10. I find it very beautiful this card, compliments Sid,
