Such a Lovely Day

Card July 2012 Kit Michelle Unruh My Mind's Eye Nostalgia Nostalgic Summer Nostalgic Summer Kit Pink Paislee Prairie Hill

It is another hot one here today in Wisconsin. Hope you all are staying cool. Today, I would like to share a card I made. I LOVE this Nostalgic Summer kit. It has a great color palette. With it being summer, and all of us are busy (we sure have been!), I went looking to one of my favorite sites for some inspiration, Pinterest. I LOVE this card. I thought I would use this as my inspiration.


 I chose more of the subdued patterns for my banner. I layered the layered sticker onto some of the patterned paper and cut it out giving it a little more presence. I ran my cardstock through my embossing machine. Good to use some of those tools that you don't use too often. ;) With the banner strips being made of paper, I decided to leave them without the loops. Twill tape would definitely work great in this situation! I took my Creative Memories Square maker to punch the notches in my banner... a good way to try and keep them even.

I love the dimension of the flower. I punched a couple of flowers, layered them and punched another piece with my Imaginisce iTop punch to give it a little more umph. Adding the date tag, minus the brad with a flower I stamped gives it one more little piece of detail.

I will be back tomorrow with this week's challenge! 

Stay cool!!
