I’ll admit that I was always a little jealous that my sister’s birthday took place during the summer. My birthday was during some of the coldest part of the year growing up in Vermont. Summer meant long warm days perfect for swimming , sweet treats and the yummiest of summer harvest. That was party time! I wanted to channel that feeling into her birthday card. Now that it’s arrived at it’s home, I can finally share this card on the blog. It’s a real favorite of mine since I got to use some of the strawberry paper I’d been saving for the perfect place. When better than July?
This card is mostly from the Lawn Fawn Pink Lemonade petite paper pack. I love this collection and luckily, it went really well with the theme of the card. All but the solids were pulled from the paper pack. The bunting sticker is from the same collection’s element stickers. I love when I have these coordinating items stashed away because it means no more stress of making sure everything matches. The card itself is build from a couple of cut files from the Silhouette store:
I have to say that, overall, this is one of my favorite cards I’ve made. The colors and patterns are super cute and really captured the feeling I was going for. The only thing I wish had gone better was the sentiment! I need to get a ruler and some pencil to make sure they’re straight in the future. Also, swapping from my Extreme tack GlueGlider Pro to a repositionable will help a lot too. Little oopsies become a bigger problem when repositioning cleanly is as difficult as the extreme makes it.
