Summer Picnic Card Set

Card Card Making Heather Landry July 2012 Kit Simple Stories Summer Fresh Summer Picnic Washi

Hi everyone. Heather here, and before I finish this post I'd like to apologize for missing last Monday's. My daughter got really sick Sunday night while I was writing the post, and she was so ill on Monday that I forgot to come back and finish it. She's feeling much better now, and I caught my mistake. So instead of one card, today you get four!

I fell in love with the scenes on the 4x6 cards that were included on some of the Simple Stories papers in the "Summer Picnic" kit and add on. They were already pretty perfect, but I couldn't resist adding a few small touches.

On this card, I used dimensional adhesive to add a blue flower sticker that pops off of the front. I also added some yellow twine and gems from the kit. See? Simple, but still special enough to send out for a friend's birthday!


We all know that Subway art is HUGE right now. Everywhere you turn on Pinterest or Facebook, it's there! I thought the 4x6 subway art card would look great taped to the front of the card. After all, it already says everything on it's own! This card could be used as an invitation to a BBQ. 

The card on the right is a wedding/newlywed card. The sentiments from the sticker sheet worked perfectly to dress it up, and the washi helped me add just the right amount of color. 

Last but not least, I have a Summer birthday card. I added the cloud sticker, then I layered washi tape and a sticker sentiment on top of it. A few more yellow pearls finished it off perfectly. It's waiting in my drawer for a new home as we speak.

Don't forget to enter the challenges this month! July is already half over and you don't want to miss out on the chance to win an awesome prize.

    I used other papers from the kit to make a 4×6 card, then I trimmed the 4×6 Simple Stories cards down a tiny bit and attached them. I know that 4×6 is not a standard card size, but it’s what worked with the pre-made Simple Stories goodies.

    I love these cards too! Look like they would be easy to make and not take a long time! I’m curious though, what did you put them on? Are they on a 4×6 piece of cardstock?
